- We will provide a 50% refund 90–119 days prior to expedition date.

Trip Cancellation Insurance
As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.
In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.
In brief, trip cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.
Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.
Climbing with Alpine Ascents under the guiding / leadership of Don and Sarah Carpenter was up there with the best expeditions that I have been on. Their professionalism and easy-going personalities made it interesting and fun. A great adventure and learning experience.
