Welcome to Ibex Mountain Guides

Rocio and Owen On home turf in North Wales

Ibex Mountain Guides is the creation of Owen Samuel and Rocio Siemens. We are a small British company based in Llanberis, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. We specialise in delivering mountaineering experiences in the UK hills and European Alps. We also occasionally run trips to far flung places around the world.

We cater for individuals or small groups.  Working together, we help you achieve your ambitions, whether they be rock climbing, winter climbing, Alpine mountaineering or ski touring.  We believe that best practice comes from dealing on a close personal basis, developing a trusting partnership which will ultimately deliver mountaineering success. On return courses you’ll move quickly to operating at your own ability level and go to new places you have always wanted to explore. We believe safety is paramount and aim to deliver clear take home learning principles which will make you safer when with us or out on your own.

Our clients are broad ranging in ability and experience.  We cater for their needs in the variety of courses we offer and our personal approach. Our courses are not fixed day-to-day programs; they are simply examples of the type of mountain experience you may want.  When you join us, you’re not joining a course, you’re making the course.  This approach allows us to tailor the course to your needs, making best of the prevailing weather and conditions.

Ibex Mountain Guides are proud to work with DMM. When in the mountains at work and at play, we are happy to test and promote equipment provided by our sponsor.
