Exam to be a hiking guide

26 new hiking guides

From May 13 to May 16, 2024, the examination for hiking guides took place. 28 candidates, who had attended a preparatory course, participated in the exam. The exam consisted of a written and a practical part.

The exam tested various skills of the candidates, including safely leading a group on a hike, preparing the hiking route, carefully looking after the guests, orienting well, and handling one or more simulated emergency situations that the participants had to face. Questions on theoretical topics were also asked in the form of an oral exam.

26 participants passed the examination and are now qualified to work as hiking guides, provided that they register in the special directory of the professional chamber of South Tyrolean mountain and ski guides.
