Rides I Guide: Mountains to Fjords
First Name: Marcio
Last Name: Franco
Bio: I grew up in the big city of Sao Paulo, Brazil and was fortunate to have a family cabin in the rainforest of Juquitiba where my passion for outdoor adventures grew. I started my outdoor guiding career as a raft guide which led me to compete in adventure races in Brazil. From there, I decided to travel abroad and over the past 20 years, I have been guiding whitewater kayaking, paragliding and mountain bike adventures in Brazil, New Zealand and Norway. In 2010, I fell in love with Voss, Norway - a hub for adventure sports and decided to make it home. Now, I take every opportunity I can to explore the rivers, mountains and fjords of the region.
My 'Sacred Ride': Lønahorgi to Afdal is the most challenging ride in my hometown of Voss, Norway. It’s a demanding climb and you’ll be sure to break a sweat during the hike-a-bike sections but the views are worth it and the technical descent continually improves my skills. The trail makes for an amazing day adventure!
