This was one of our favorite things about our trip to Alaska. We did the trip where you kayak across the lake along icebergs and then do a glacier hike. It was a great experience from start to finish. The company and everyone who contacted me was really cool and professional in every way. Our guide was Amy (I'm pretty... More

Ascending Path provided excellent service all around, starting with Celina making sure I was able to get the booking on the only day I was going to be in town. I was picked up directly from my hostel and taken outside the city for the hike. My guide Matt was very informative and a pleasure to hike with. Despite the... More

We had the most amazing hike on a glacier with a fantastic and knowledgable guide. Although the weather was cloudy and rainy and we thought we will not see anything, the experience was one that we will not forget.

It was a great little hike...felt like i could have hiked for much longer! We were lucky with the weather and with Heather's help took some tremendous pictures. I would suggest ascending path to...

Last Wednesday, wife, son and I went for a three hour guided hike to the Glacier bowl. Our guide was Ryan from Ascending Path. We were the only group to hike that day, which probably made for an even more enjoyable experience. We started at the Ascending Path yurt located right next to the Alyeska hotel where we were staying.... More

So I went on the flat top hike the first day. It was awesome. Todd, our guide, did a great job with everything, pointing out the small things. I felt really bad that I left my hotel key in the van, but he dropped it off to me. Now the glacier climb on Sunday, I think. I want to say,... More

My family did the Alpine Hike which was a little more strenuous than we thought it was going to be, but still fun. The weather wasn't great the day we went - drizzly rain and a little chilly. The pictures on the web show people in shorts on a bright, sunny, clear day - I think that is probably a... More

We went on a hike to the chugach mountains and felt that our guide was very knowledgeable about the plantlife on our hike. Our only complaint was that it was a bit pricy and the vehicles didn't have seatbelts for everyone
