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 very much enjoyed the expedition. This climb would serve as an excellent prep for Denali given the need to carry loads and the interesting weather.The experience was both fun and challenging. I felt like I had a true alpine experience even without summiting. This was my 6th AAI trip and I continue to learn useful information on the trips. This climb would serve as an excellent prep for Denali given the need to carry loads and the interesting weather.
