International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations

The IFMGA is an international federation that sets the standards for guiding throughout the world.

IFMGA guides have extensive mountaineering experience, and training and assessments are carried out in rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering, off-piste skiing, first aid and avalanche awareness.

The IFMGA qualification is a legal requirement for all mountain guiding in the Alps and is your stamp of quality.
