Our West Glacier hike to the Mendenhall Glacier and the ice caves was fantastic! Possibly the best hike we have ever done. Our adventurous guide, Ariel, led us through challenging paths and was very knowledgeable about the glacier and surrounding rainforest. Hiking on the glacier with crampons was amazing – Ariel led us to breathtaking views. We were blown away... More

My family and I did the Mendenhall Glacier Trek with guides Miles and Ariel. An excellent 8 hour adventure. Our experience was EXACTLY as described on the website. The hike was strenuous, which made completing the trek even more rewarding, but even my 15 year old sister managed it with no problems. The hike to the glacier offered many breathtaking... More

I booked the Mendenhall Glacier hike directly with ABAK for our port call in Juneau. Everything about this company was amazing from the initial booking. On the day of our hike, we were met at our cruise ship by our guide, Sam Leeman who informed us that due to a lot or recent rainfall the trail was very wet and... More

My goal was to get an authentic Alaskan experience and get away from the Cruise line tourist track - even though I was on a cruise myself! My family of 5 plus ONE guide was the only on the "tour" which took us 10 miles hiking through jungle, intense terrain, and onto the famed Mendenhall Glacier. We got up close... More

Our guide picked us up at the cruise ship dock right on time. We drove through town to the marina where we were outfitted with rain gear, rubber boots, and life jackets. Then kayaks were loaded and we were on our way to the lake. We were given a map and basic directions and put into the water. Kayaking on... More

My family of four including two athletic teens age 16 and 14 booked this trip. We booked the open trip with 7 other people. It was the highlight of our trip and my boys can't keep talking about the experience. Everyone was sore the next day even the boys who are in elite athletic shape were sore. This is not... More

We did the glacier trek where you trek to the glacier, then on the glacier and then back to where you started. This whole company is for those who love the outdoors and want to make the most of nature. Our guides Sam and Annie were excellent. They were very personable and made safety a priority. Annie, especially had some... More

My family of 4 including 2 kids ages 11 and 13 booked the private Mendenhall Glacier Trek for July 8. It was one of the most adventurous, incredible days of our lives and we can't stop talking about how much fun we had! I never dreamed I would be inside of a glacier but we went in 2 caves and...

We took the three-day camping Tracy Arm trip and had an amazing time. Our guide was professional and prepared, everything seemed to have been thought-of beforehand. I can't recommend it enough. My only suggestion is to 1) pack light and 2) follow the recommended gear list to a "t."

Fantastic - just like the pictures on the ABAK web site. Looking at the ABAK web site before our trip, from far away Australia, I was somewhat sceptical of how often it would be “so good”, but on 26th June 2014 it was exactly as shown – just perfect. The pick-up van was on time, the kayak gear was good,... More
