UIMLA Qualification

The Union of International Mountain Leader Associations (UIMLA) was founded in November 2004 and is an internationally recognised qualification that sets standards for mountain leaders all over the world. 

 

The UIMLA International Mountain Leader and the IFMGA Mountain Guide are the only internationally recognised qualifications for those leading groups in the mountains. 

What will they provide?

The trekking guide will have extensive knowledge of the route and will be able to guide you whatever the weather. In poor visibility the trails can be difficult and having someone with you who knows the area can be invaluable.

 

The trekking guide will not only ensure your safety but they also offer a wealth of knowledge about the environment. Find out more about the flora, fauna, geology and history of the area you will be trekking through.
