Reservation Policies


A deposit of $1000.00 (or payment in full of the trip price is less than $1000) per person is required to reserve a trip with Alaska Alpine Adventures. The remaining balance is due 60 days prior to the start of the trip.
  Reservations made within 60 days of the trip starting date require payment in full. If the participant cancels a reservation earlier than 60 days prior to the starting date, the deposit will be refunded, minus a $100.00 administration fee.  If the participant cancels within 59-31 days of the starting date, 50% of the trip balance will be refunded.  If cancellation is made within 30-0 days of the trip starting date, there will be no refund of any costs*.  Alaska Alpine Adventures recommends cancellation insurance available through Travel Guard. Please call or email us for details.

 Alaska Alpine Adventures reserves the right to cancel or change the itinerary of a trip.  In the event that Alaska Alpine Adventures cancels your trip and you are unable to participate, your total balance will be refunded.  Occasionally, weather or other factors may cause delays or make completing a trip impossible.  In these circumstances, there will be no refund of fees.  Alaska Alpine Adventures is not responsible for any additional costs (e.g. airline flight changes, additional hotel nights, etc.) associated with trip delays or itinerary changes due to weather or other factors. 


In order to guarantee any Alaska Alpine Adventures goes at the listed price, a minimum number of participants must sign up.  Most of our wilderness trips (including our Ultimate Alaska Multisport) require a minimum of 3 guests to guarantee departure, while the Source to Sea Multisport, the Aniakchak River and our trips into the Arctic require a minimum of 4 guests to guarantee departure.
