There are three ways of finding a mountain guide:
- Usually there is a mountain guide agency, an alpine centre or a mountain guide office in your favourite region.
- Often also the corresponding national association (look here for more information about the national associations) offers a list with the active mountain guides.
- Additionally, many alpine schools offer mountain excursions in their region.
It is important that the mountain guide that you have chosen attended the entire training according to the standards of the IFMGA. This is proved by wearing the international mountain guide sign. Additionally, every mountain guide has got an IFMGA card.
