Above and beyond my expectations. We came as group of 15 and were assigned 4 guides. All 4 were just amazing. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We were provided all the necessary equipment to walk on ice so it felt easy and comfortable, even for someone who never hiked before (me :) This was one of the highlights of this entire... More

We wanted a fun adventure for fathers day and took the whole family on the Extreme Zip line. Our older kids are "high adventure, extreme sport " kids so they were skeptical. We all had a blast! Everyone of us from the 12 year old to the the 20 somethings and us 50+ parents. Was a great, fun, full of... More

Living in Alaska for over twenty five years, I wish I would have heard of these guys sooner. It took a visit from my sister and "looking for things to do" to discover this awesome adventure. We did the ice climbing adventure 0900hrs - 1630 hrs on 6/21/15. We had four persons in our party and there was one other... More

We did the advanced Glacier Trek on 6/19/15. It completely surpassed our expectations. The equipment was plentiful and staff was very friendly and helpful. Ben was our guide and made our trek so enjoyable. It was challenging but safe. He worked to help us see different features of the Glacier. He was very knowledgeable and taught us about the glacier...

Fun and educational! Two 11-year-olds dragged along their 50+ parents and they all loved it. Our guide Ben did a great job!

It was first time I did something like that! I had really great time, liked Matanuska glacier and views while trekking on it. I highly recommend to do guided tour instead of just going on your own because you can see way much more.

The hike gave me an amazing view of the glacier! I came here with my mom and grandmother and we had a blast! I learned a lot about glaciers from our guides; Noah and Lizzy!

My husband and I went on both ziplines. They were awesome. The first one was the shorter of the two. We hiked up to the tower and zipped down to the base. Then we hopped in a van and were driven pretty close to the second tower. There we hooked up and looked over the ledge of the cliff we... More

I'm very happy that you enjoyed our ziplines. We're very proud of the new G2 and the fact that it's the fastest in Alaska. As the owner, I rarely get to guide trips myself these days but I love working the zipline and I'm glad you had such a good time. --Don More
