Alaska Expeditions and Climbs
Alaska is a land of superlatives and a visit to the 49th state of the US will reveal why it is often dubbed “The Last Frontier.” With over 380,000 square miles of public land, one of the highest tidal differences in the world (35 ft), and the highest mountain in North America, the state of Alaska is so big that you could fit Texas, California and Montana within its borders.
The wildest and most rugged area in this wild and rugged state is the Alaska Range. Forming a 400 mile long arc through southcentral Alaska, the Range is home to iconic climbing destinations such as Denali, the Ruth Gorge, Mount Foraker, Mount Hunter, Mount Huntington, Little Switzerland and the Kichatna Spires.
Mountain Trip has been guiding climbers in Denali National Park and Preserve since 1973. We are one of the original permitted concessionaires for leading guided mountaineering expeditions in the Park, and we have grown to lead more climbers up Mount McKinley than any other guide service. Mountain Trip has the experience to lead the highest quality climbs in this beautiful and challenging range.
