Mountaineering

Alaska Mountain Guides & Climbing School Inc. and Mountain Guides International offer the best mountaineering programs in Alaska and around the world.   Our premier guided expeditions climb to the top of the world’s tallest peaks.  We bring the highest level of safety, unparalleled service and extensive experience from over 20 years of guiding to each and every climb.  Whether climbing a remote technical Alaskan peak or the highest peak in South America, AMG & MGI offer the best overall guided mountaineering experience. 

Our accredited mountaineering instructional programs develop competent and confident climbers. Using a “hands-on” approach to learning, we introduce new mountaineering skills and put them to use on climbs that develop individual skill and technique. We have mountaineering programs for everyone ranging from those who want a fun initial climbing experience, to those seeking serious expedition skills appropriate for the most demanding high altitude climbs. We also offer solid professional training courses. Our small groups and low student-to-instructor ratio help us meet individual expectations, and help guests progress as quickly as their ambition and ability allow. No previous experience is required for any of these mountaineering courses.
