About me

Stephan Keck, 25.09.1973

Alpine Guide, Extreme Mountain Climber, Outdoor Photographer

…some words in regard to my experiences in the mountains

As I grew up in the Austrian Alps, I already had the opportunity to meet the mountains when I was a child. When I was 14 years old, I also started to climb. After many tours in the native mountains in summer and winter I traveled to South America in 1996 for the first time. Since then I have been staying in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina for nearly 4 years in total.

 

From 2001 – 03 I made the Austrian education for a mountain- skiing and canyoning guide and passed the exam in July 2003. Furthermore, I am a professionally trained skiing and snowboard instructor. Since summer 2001 I have been working full time as a tour guide.

  • 1983 – 1987 secondary school
  • 1987 – 1991 shipfitter apprentice for gas/water/heating
