Why climb with International Alpine Guides?

  • We provide you with an exceptional, more personalized experience at a better value, 
  • Safety is our top priority with IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guides, the highest mountain guiding certification in the world or AMGA trained mountain guides.
  • We are a highly experienced international operator using the best local mountain logistics
  • We keep our overall group sizes small giving you individualized attention
  • Low climber to guide ratios, usually no more than two to three climbers to one guide, for your safety and enjoyment

Climbing internationally with an experienced, highly-trained & personable American mountain guide can greatly add to the enjoyment and safety of your mountain climbing experience. We use the perfect combination of mountain guides from the United States along with top local mountain logistics companies. We are teachers as well as mountain guides - rather than just taking you up and down the mountains we hope to leave you with some further knowledge of mountaineering & alpine climbing to take with you on your next international mountain climbing adventure.
