Azimut AltitudE, Who is it ?

Hello, I am Elodie Bruder, born in 1982. Passionate about the mountains and science, I started my career as an engineer. After completing my studies, I lived and worked more than a decade in various places around the world such as India, Africa, the Middle East, and Ukraine, primarily with a humanitarian organization before settling back near Geneva. My heart was longing for the mountains!

As far as I can remember I've always been drawn to the outdoors and the peaks. From childhood hikes to climbing, mountaineering, and ice climbing, I have experienced all sorts of mountain adventures. But hiking remains my first and true passion. I love envisioning new routes, experiencing and sharing immersive mountain adventures, and taking the time to connect with nature.

As an orienteering enthusiast and a humanitarian at heart, I have long dreamed of introducing others to the mountains, a realm that I truly cherish. That's why in 2022, I decided to pursue my dream and embarked on a journey to become a certified mountain leader through the Swiss “Brevet Fédéral”.

With Azimut Altitude, it's not just about guiding you to stunning destinations, it's about creating a human connection and a connection with nature. The mountains are a powerful, yet delicate environment; I believe they are not just a place to explore, but also a place to discover ourselves and our relation to the world. The trails are filled with thousands of mysteries to unveil, I can’t wait to share these with you!

See you soon in the mountains...
