Climbing Expeditions with Alpenglow

Welcome to Alpenglow Expeditions! For nearly a decade, the AMGA mountain guides at Alpenglow have provided the highest caliber of mountaineering, trekking, climbing and skiing expeditions.  Providing opportunities to climb mountains from Kilimanjaro to Everest, Alpenglow Expeditions offers a wide range of climbs for every level of aspiring mountaineer.  Have you ever pictured yourself climbing mountains? The exhilaration and excitement of summiting a great peak is something all mountaineers strive for; climb Kilimanjaro, or trek across the great mountain ranges of Bolivia & Nepal to learn for yourself. 

Every Alpenglow expedition is focused on a small group with guide to client ratios that allow for the teaching of mountaineering skills, safety and education in the big mountains.  All Alpenglow expeditions and climbs are led by AMGA/IFMGA certified guides.  The AMGA/IFMGA certification is an internationally recognized mountaineering certification that is considered the highest credential attainable by a mountain guide.  There are approximately 75 AMGA/IFMGA Certified Mountain Guides in the USA, all of whom represent the apex of American mountain guiding.  Alpenglow Expeditions is the first major guide service in the US to require this certification from our lead guides. 

When you sign up for an Alpenglow expedition, you are not just tagging a summit and heading home; we have spend over a decade in each of the locations we offer expeditions.  Our logistics for travel are at the highest level in the guiding industry.  Whether you are refueling with delicious food at basecamp or visiting locals in the family-run hotel in town, you will notice the difference in our friendly and knowledgeable local support staff.  When we visit other countries to climb mountains, cooperation with locals is essential.  With their assistance, we are able to focus our resources and strength on our climbing.  We appreciate their fantastic support. 

Alpenglow Expeditions looks to provide more than your average mountaineering experience.  Our AMGA Certified Mountain Guides, amazing local logistics, and desire to maximize your educational experience with big mountains all combine to guarantee your optimal learning, fun, safety and success.
