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.

I had such a wonderful time! Jose Luis is a beyond excellent guide — kind, so knowledgeable, very easy to get along with. The other guides were also amazing. All the accommodations were wonderful. The trip was extremely well laid out.
