The history of the mountain guides in Trentino began with the birth of alpinism in the Dolomites. Its protagonists are explorers from England, Germany, Austria and local mountain guides. The mountain guide' s profession has been subject to changes and development. Until the end of the 18th century they were the mountain guides of rich aristocrats keen on granting their name to a famous peak or wall. The modern mountain guide however, is a professional with not only a profound knowledge of the manifold traditional and modern alpine techniques but is also an expert in nature, culture and history. In those days and at present, the mountain guides are the authors of national and international alpine history. The Trentino Alpine Guide Association is preparing the guides for their professional life. In Trentino 220 mountain guides are registered; they are being distributed among 12 alpine schools and/or other types of guide' s associations. Practically in each valley of Trentino you can find an association of mountain guides which can provide information and advice. The alpine schools or guide' s associations are offering a vast range of activities and courses which can be booked directly. With a mountain guide on your side, a day in the mountains, a simple excursion through the forests of our National Parks or a climbing tour in the Dolomites, will become an unforgettable experience. The alpine guides of Arco Trentino are publishing an annual program offering daily or weekly excursions/events which are suitable for everyone who has already been in the mountains but is mainly addressing those who want to make first contact with them. The program includes excursions, trekking tours, climbing trips, high alpine treks, via ferrata courses or excursions in the National Parks with special park Mountain Guides.
