AEGM (Spanish Mountain Guides Association) was founded in 1993, when a group of different existing professional associations decided to join forces to solve questions related with formation, professional qualifications, recognition, and regulation of this profession, with the aim of achieving full representation in their relationships with official institutions.
AEGM is a national association recognised by the UIAGM y UIMLA (international organisations with worldwide implementation and prestige) since 1994, working side by side with other associations at the executive boards.
AEGM has legal bylaws which regulate its activity and is registered in the National Registry of National Associations of the Ministry of Labour with the number Nº 5294.
AEGM publishes annually an internal bulletin with news related to the mountain leaders’ and canyoning guides’ profession and activities.
AEGM has several technical boards, one for each field, a technical department, and an administrative department. The Association is based in Jaca (Huesca)
