A full package of safety, expertise and guidance…

Therefore, bringing all this together ensures that trekking with a mountain guide will enable you to:

  • Be sure you are heading in the right direction, even when the path is not signposted or there is no obvious path at all.
  • Feel safe if there is an accident, bad weather, or any unexpected situation.
  • Be accompanied by a person who can lead the group and knows the organisation, strategy and risks of the activity you are involved in.
  • Benefit from all the knowledge acquired by the guide during his/her years of experience, which cannot be fully covered in any guidebook, covering how to identify flora and fauna; what is the best route to hike, scramble or climb, according to the weather conditions and terrain and where are the best spots for photos and rest stops.

All TrekPyrenees mountain guides are UIMLA and AEGM certified.
