Private Denali Expeditions

Since our humble beginnings in the Alaska Range, born of a deep love for big, glaciated peaks, Mountain Trip has successfully guided many private groups to the summit of the highest peak in North America.

While we are proud of our West Buttress expeditions, we also recognize the need to offer private expeditions for climbers.  Over the years, we have crafted dozens of custom, flexible, out-of-the-box trips for climbers seeking an experience somewhat different than that on a scheduled team.

Whether it’s an extended itinerary with a more relaxed (or rapid) ascent schedule, an additional guide or office support, or a trip created specifically for you and your climbing partners, we have you covered. On a private trip, you’ll have more control over the finer details of the expedition, including the development of custom food menus, specific departure dates, guide choices and more. For the 2020 season, we are already organizing private expeditions for ski mountaineers, as well as for teams outside the US looking to climb with a guide from their own country, and for climbers seeking to control the composition of their guide team.

We’re happy to work with you to create your ideal Denali expedition! Why compromise on your journey to the highest point in North America?

The legacy of Mountain Trip stretches back to before the National Park Service started the current concession system, and Mountain Trip has been guiding climbers up Denali each season since 1976. Mountain Trip Alaska LLC is an authorized concessionaire of Denali National Park and Preserve and Mountain Trip International LLC is it’s official booking agent.  Please contact us for more details about what might be possible!
