We wanted to kayak at the Mendenhall Glacier while in Juneau, and used this company to make it happen. We decided to do a self guided trip, and it was well worth it. Our liaison, Lauren, picked us up right at the port exactly when we were told she would. She told us a lot about the area on the... More

My husband and I booked a three day, two night kayak trip to Tracy Arm with Above & Beyond Alaska. The website was easy to use and the staff was extremely prompt in responding to my email inquiries and guiding me through the reservation process. Once our trip was booked, everything went like clockwork! Our guide (Bjorn) made sure we... More

My family of 4 grown children, my husband and I did the private Mendenhall glacier trek and climb. I am 56 and to prepare I did a lot of hiking beforehand. It was a good thing I did because parts of this trip was very strenuous, but our guide Miles was great, setting a reasonable pace and helping me to... More

Simply awesome experience with my 12-year old daughter and guide Sam. Brisk and tough 1.5 hour hike followed by gearing up for the Glacier and capped off with some ice cave spelunking. Tougher vertical climb up from the Glacier getting back. All in a tough 7-hour day, but well worth the effort. The quicker you tough it out to the... More

Four of us (Mixed experienced) kayakers loved this well equipped paddling excursion out of Juneau AK.The boats were excellent--easy to paddle. The guide was knowledgable of the area's rock/glacier formations and animals. He was fun and his appreciation of the area was contagious! At all times he was courteous and willing to do what we wanted on this personal excursion.... More

I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to keep up with the group exploring Mendenhall Glacier by foot. Listen: I'm a 47 year-old city dweller. I'm active, but I'm not some young triathlete. During the month before the trip, I upped my gym routine, and took a lot of long, urban hikes. The guides were EXCELLENT at choosing... More

Our family of 8 did the Mendenhall Glacier hike in June with Above & Beyond Alaska and could not have had a better experience. Since we were more than 6 people they sent two guides and our lead guide Brad was knowledgeable, fun and encouraging and kept our entire group of multiple abilities going. Colin the second guide also did... More

This was the best excursion of our Alaska vacation! Nathan and Corey were our guides and they were fantastic with the two children and each adult in our 8 person group. The hike to the glacier was fun and they pointed out things of interest along the way. The climb on the glacier was very exciting and the ice cave... More

Too start off let me say that our 2 guides, Mattheus and Kit were the best. Without their guidance we would not have finished the hike. They helped us all the way. It was a great hike and the ice cave was a highlight and the views from the top were fantastic ! But I have to add this note.... More

My wife, daughter and son took the private Mendenhall Glacier hike and it was fantastic. Our guide Sam (the best) lead us on groomed trails and up and over rocks to reach our destination. Sam was very patient with my wife and I who struggled on a couple of sections of the hike. We have hiked on groomed trails and... More
