Robin created “The Walking Robin”, the first Italian site dedicated to the world of thru-hiking, in 2017 with the aim of promoting of thru-hiking in Italy. By 2019 he became an Environmental Hiking Guide associated with AIGAE and started taking small groups of people on thru-hikes in the wildest places in Europe.
Robin’s travels share an authentic approach to nature and adventure, fully reflecting his way of understanding exploration which started from a very young age when he was charmed by the mountains and became an explorer of his “home mountains”, the Dolomites.
Coming across thru-hiking a few years ago opened up a whole new way of exploration to him. It completely changed the way he thinks of about outdoor gear/equipment, nutrition, training and style of progression.
During expeditions he experiments with numerous bushcraft and survival techniques, as well as testing different products, discovering their limits and potential.
