Passing the Torch

Mountain guide by day, writer by night. This is Branford Walker, the next generation of mountain guides for Ryder-Walker Alpine Adventures. Following in his father’s footsteps, Branford is sharing his well earned knowledge of the Alps with our guests. Branford just finished guiding our Tour du Mont Blanc, a ten day circumnavigation of Western Europe’s highest peak.

Since the age of three, Branford has participated in the development of, or been on, almost every trip that Ryder-Walker has to offer. In some ways, he almost has more experience than our veteran guides!

Come over to the Alps, and hike with Branford. With record warm days in the alps, you’re sure to have the best of times.
