Bastien Demange


After graduating from University and gaining a degree in Marketing and Communication, I decided to quit everything to look for adventure.

I bought a bike and cycled away from home to reach China a year and a half later, after having crossed some very challenging place including the Dash-e-Kavir desert in summer and Siberia in winter. It was a simple, life changing experience.

Since then, I decided to become an outdoor Instructor and live the life I really wanted. After spending some time with dogs and boats in Finland and Canada, I arrived in Scotland in 2012 to enjoy the amazing possibilities of this beautifoul country.

I am now based in Aviemore working and gaining my certifications at the same time. If you think I don't have many certifications, you're right, but remember I only started a year ago. My main activities are paddlesports, water activities and Mountain Biking, but I enjoy anything related to the outdoor.

If you want an instructor delivering safe, fun, challenging, engaging and high quality sessions, feel free to contact me.
