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 more private groups to the summit of the highest peak in North America than any other guide service.

While we are proud of our West Buttress expeditions, we also recognize that there are many climbers who prefer different expedition models.  Over the years, we have crafted scores of custom, flexible, out-of-the-box trips for climbers seeking an experience somewhat different than that on a scheduled team. In the age of the novel coronavirus, we are seeing a lot of private climb interest from small cohorts of climbers who know each other well.

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 2022 season, we are already organizing private expeditions for ski mountaineers, for teams from outside the US looking to climb with a guide from their own country, and for climbers seeking to control the composition of their climbing 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, with the exception of 2020, 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!
