Simon Leroux

Assistant Guide (Road Cycling Holidays)

New to the Marmot team for 2021, I have, for many years, worked for the renowned Cirque du Soleil before swapping the view from my desk for a much larger office: the great outdoors! During the last eight years, the guiding work took me to various parts of North America where I’ve guided kayak whale watching tours in the majestic St-Lawrence estuary, hiking tours in the Rockies and in the Western USA national parks, as well as cycling tours in various parts of Canada and Europe. In the winters, I worked at a remote mountain lodge accessible only by snowcat where I led ski touring groups. I am now married to Northern Irish girl with whom I live in London (when I’m there!).

When not touring the mountains of Europe, or navigating my way through my native Quebec in the winter, you’ll likely find me eating large amounts of food (by far one of the greatest advantages of working outdoors!). I believe my energy to be contagious and hope to help make your trip into an unforgettable adventure.
