Guía de Media Montaña
International Mountain Leader
Do you already get it? As an IML, I can guide you on beautiful, challenging, steep, demanding, relaxed, interesting hikes in the mountains. Although the Spanish title Guía de Media Montaña (guide of the middle mountains) suggests otherwise, the height of the trip is not important: we can also walk through high alpine areas. In the summer by foot, with snowshoes in winter, from hut to hut, having sweet dreams in bivouacs, snow caves, or after a day trip tired and satisfied in our own bed.
Environmental knowledge, avalanche awareness, orientation, tour planning, meteorology; under the guidance of an IML you can fully relax while hiking or, on the contrary, expand your knowledge and skills to be able to discover the mountains more independently in the future.
The IML title is, surprisingly, an internationally recognized title that can be achieved in different countries. The International Mountain Leader training is offered in Switzerland, England, France and even in the Netherlands, among others. I followed the Spanish training in the Pyrenees, but it allows me to work all over the world. Guides from the different courses can join the UIMLA (Union of International Mountain Leader Associations) and thereby make their value known internationally.
