Why to choose a Mountain Guide
In Italy, Mountain Guides are the only professionals allowed to take people to the mountains
It’s difficult to establish when the profession of the Mountain Guide is born.
Across the centuries, many mountain men had to work, and later on have been payed too, to “show the way” to merchant and travellers through the dangerous passes of the Alps.
What we can surely state,is that the first mountain guides were mostly hunters, farmers and woodcutters who lived on the mountains.
