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.

Loved the course very informative. I thought the course was well thought out, well planned and was exactly what I was looking for. Yes I feel pretty confident in the skills I learned. Both guides were very methodical and thorough in the way they explained the information
