Island Alpine Guides was born in 2006 out of a desire to share Vancouver Island’s unique mountain culture and wild spaces with others. We have since grown to be Vancouver Island’s premier alpine guiding outfit. Based in Cumberland, BC, we take a community-focused approach to deliver outstanding experiences and education to the highest international standard.
If you’re looking to explore the spectacular alpine and coastal areas of Vancouver Island and BC's Coast Ranges, we’re your ticket. Our team of professional guides and instructors are all certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and/or are members of the Canadian Avalanche Association, so you can rest assured you’re in good hands. We can’t wait to facilitate your next adventure in the Island Alps!
