Lizzy Ashley Cooper
Route: Chamonix and the French Alps
Lizzy grew up in the Dorset countryside, and the freedom of walking and riding over the chalk downs and along the ancient paths and droves as a child has never left her. Having lived and worked in Rome for several years, in an antiques business, she then returned to London, working in the international art reference book world.
She first visited the Mont Blanc area through ski touring and on a subsequent visit realized how magnificent the mountains could be in summer, so much so that she moved to the Chamonix Valley in 2002, a magnificent setting with scenery hard to beat, wonderful alpine meadows, forests and higher slopes with many varieties of alpine flora to be found. She is still discovering new walking trails in the area.
She has worked with On Foot Holidays since the very beginning, creating routes around the Chamonix and neighbouring valleys and has seen On Foot grow and spread its wings over the years.
Fluent in French and Italian, Lizzy also works as a translator.
