International School of Mountaineering

Our partner guiding company

A warm welcome from the International School of Mountaineering, dedicated to sharing the skills, enjoyment and the adventure of mountaineering and rock climbing in all of its aspects.

Owned, managed and operated by a team of vastly experienced IFMGA guides, ISM has a proud history spanning over 55 years. Our school has continuously developed and refined its program of courses in alpine mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, off-piste and ski touring. With our office in the Lake District, UK and our alpine base in the village of Leysin, CH we offer a huge array of exciting adventures and opportunities for our guests.

We take a particular pride in our range of instructional courses, allowing you to progress along a clear pathway and gain practical skills and experience needed for independent mountaineering.

Our guiding and instructional rock-climbing courses based here in the Lake District offer both a great start introduction to rock climbing outdoors to helping you develop your trad climbing to become more independent.

Please visit the ISM website where we hope that you'll find something of interest in our program and look forward to seeing you in the mountains.

ISM proudly supported by Arc’teryx
