What is Mountaineering

Published by October 16, 2009

Some travel insurance plans will cover hazardous sports, including mountaineering.  Most plans specifically define mountaineering and will exclude this activity unless hazardous sports coverage is added.  Mountaineering can either be determined by elevation or by the use of equipment, such as ropes or pickaxes.  Scenic hiking or walking trails are normally not considered mountaineering.  Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
