Note: Alpine Ascents International highly recommends trip cancellation insurance for all programs. Due to the nature and heavy costs of government and operator permits, Alpine Ascents International must adhere to a stringent refund policy.

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.

Challenging climb that benefited from top notch guide staff and great food.  Felt the gear list was reasonable and appropriate.  Guides were excellent at communication and making sure everyone was safe and was having a good time.
