Above & Beyond Alaska 's Private Glacier Trek was an awesome experience! It was a wonderful hike and exploration of the Mendenhall glacier. Our guide, Miles, was knowledgeable and helpful and went out of his way to please us. The glacier is much more beautiful when you are on it than viewing from a distance.

I can't say enough about this company. I had another booking fall through and needed to book a hike in the last minute. Kelsey was nothing short of exceptional in quickly responding to my email and getting me booked up. We exchanged a number of emails and she was patient and responsive at every turn, and went above and beyond... More

Brad and Kit were the best! They made a great team - Kit was a fountain of botanical information, while Brad was obviously very well-versed in wilderness expertise and kept the laughs coming! You can tell they both are really passionate about their jobs, and that's what makes a guide awesome. The trek itself was long and somewhat challenging -... More

We had a great time on this adventure. It was definitely a check off of my bucket list. Our guide Miles was very patient and we felt safe with him. It was raining the day we went on our trek and the terrain was super challenging, (it would have been an advanced hike without the rain). They provided water, snacks... More

This is a great experience and should be considered if visiting Juneau. Our guide Sam was informative and fun. The company provided me with all the information that I needed to properly prepare for the adventure. Very cool and amazing sights. Thank you Sam and Above and Beyond for providing such a wonderful opportunity.

This was a WONDERFUL experience!! From scheduling the visit, to even getting recommendations on the right hiking boots, and our guides… full on PERFECT!! Miles and Kristin were amazing guides!! I think the website's description of being able to hike 8-9 miles is a bit "light" for some. There is some pretty steep rock trails, and small streams to cross,... More

Words can't describe how amazing this trip is. We did the hike to and on the glacier with Lauren and Annie as our guides. Both Annie and Lauren quickly got to know all 12 of the very diverse group. They made everyone feel welcome and safe. This is a tricky hike with some steep ups and downs but our guides... More

We booked a tour with Above and Beyond Alaska to hike to Mendenhall glacier and then walk around on the glacier. Brad was our amazing guide. We had a family of eight ranging from a 10-year-old to a 68-year-old and Brad took care of us all. Above and Beyond Alaska provided all of our gear; backpacks, snacks, harnesses, helmets, and...

We did a glacier hike on Lemon glacier and it was amazing! No other tour groups out there, we had the glacier all to our selves. Our tour guides name was Shaggy and he was awesome. We took a helicopter ride to the side of a cliff. We then put our gear on to climb the glacier. The views and... More
