Contenu section haute et résumé

Founded in 1821, the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix has more than 1300 guides who have formed it over time. Each guide has participated, through their activities, in writing the unique history of the Company. Intimately linked to that of the Chamonix Valley, this story is made up of men and women who are above all passionate about the mountains. Remarkable and magnificent, modest and ordinary, joyful or catastrophic, the adventures they experienced have shaped the collective imagination of the mountain.
