Andre Bissett

Lifelong outdoorsman Andre Bissett grew up in rural England surrounded by farmers, foresters, gamekeepers, and park rangers. “From a young age,” he says, “these people inspired me to take an interest in understanding our connections with the landscape.” His upbringing also motivated his university studies in agriculture, land management, and environmental protection. Andre’s global curiosity has taken him everywhere from antelope research in Tanzania to building hiking trails in Vermont. He calls Cumbria’s Lake District home and holds advanced first aid certifications. As a seasoned hiking guide, Andre enjoys helping travelers connect to a place through its history, culture, and cuisine.
