IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guides
All of our High Mountain Guides guides are UIAGM/IFMGA qualified. This is the only guide certification that is internationally recognized and is required in order to legally work as a High Mountain Guide in France. Our highly professional and personable guides are a mixture of nationalities including British, French, American, Swiss and Austrian. All of our guides have extensive experience of guiding in the Alps and above all they have your enjoyment and your safety in mind.
Our primary language is English although most of our guides speak both English and French. We are also fortunate to have access to guides who speak Spanish, German, Swedish, Italian and Russian to name but a few.
All of our IML guides hold the International Mountain Leader Award, the professional qualification for those qualified to lead trekking parties to all mountain areas except on glaciers, or where the techniques or equipment of alpinism are required. Our IML's are fully qualified to lead your group on hikes and trails in the “middle” mountains and can take groups on snow shoing tours and flora and fauna discovery trails.
