I am Ceri Temple and founder of 4elements. I grew up with a thirst for travel, love of being active outdoors and deep appreciation of intercultural experiences. I am passionate about the transformative and developmental power that adventuring through these areas brings. Following a degree in languages I weaved my career path through the fields of tourism, sports leadership, outdoor education, language teaching and learning and international education- living in Italy, Austria, UK and Germany.
Eventually the fire for sharing this passion was so strong, it was time to break free of the walls of the classroom and create a way to make this happen. Thus 4elements was conceived and launched in 2012- inspiring others to explore, challenge and discover more about themselves, others and the environment.
No one will protect what they don't care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced
I believe that through providing accessible and inspiring adventures, we have the ability to send many positive ripples into the world- unlocking personal potential, deepening intercultural understanding, experiencing the wonders of nature and spreading awareness of our place in the world and our responsibility to it. All this in fun and wonderful ways!
Based in the Bavarian Pre-Alps, just a hop, skip and jump from the Bavarian capital of Munich, we have an abundance of possibilities and wonderful tour options.
Our programmes, events and tours are designed to be fun, informative and safe. With first-hand in-depth knowledge of both the travel industry, the field of education and exceptional local knowledge, we are experts at creating unique and authentic experiences, as well as events tailor-made to the specific needs of a group.
I am a qualified teacher, certified mountain hiking guide and International Mountain Leader, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Leader/ Assessor and trainer and lead a number of the events and tours myself. When I am not able to split myself in two, or need expertise in a specific area I call upon other like-minded and highly qualified instructors to facilitate.
We take great pride in what we do and we put heart and soul into giving you an unforgettable experience.More about 4elements
