Pictures tell a thousand words about the beautiful landscape, but the intense emotions of actually being there, surrounded by the mighty peaks, alone with your spirit and a million miles away from the crazy pace of the world, can’t be described. All I can say is that I’ll definitely be back.

Expertise - Safety

Our courses, trekkings and expeditions have been tried, tested, altered and perfected over decades. We, IFMGA mountain guides,  have gained experience in the Alps, Yosemite, on expeditions in the Andes, the Himalayas and the Karakorum. Our knowledge and experience have been transferred to all spheres of  our organization, from the first call to safe return home.

We are focusing on smaller groups of clients as we provide higher level of individual assistance. A very important part of our activity is to advise our clients on how to get a proper fitness condition and how to choose correct quality equipment for their safety. By doing so, we ensure the highest possible safety and comfort for our clients.

We put a lot of attention to making reliable relationships with local partners (Sherpas, porters) and we treat them as members of our Alpguide family. We always asses risks and follow safety procedures that ensure safety of our clients, partners and guides.
