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 receive 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.

Excellent!  Having this class in Denali National Park exposed me to a class and quality of climbing beyond my expectations.  This class was a great balance between safety, team building, skills and a lot of climbing.  Best climbing I have ever done!  My skills improved measurably.
