Lauren did an excellent job on our private whale watching and kayak tour. She was totally sensitive to the needs of our family and adjusted the tour accordingly. She knew the area, taught us about the different berries on the uninhabited island, and was very enjoyable to be around.

Spawning salmon, glaciers, ice caves, moulins, crevasses, mountain goat trails. WOW! Took my 12 year old daughter on the glacier trek by ABAK after it was recommended by a coworker and am so glad I did. We were fortunate to have Kristen and Annie as our fantastic guides. Not only did they treat everyone in our group like family, they... More

Hannah and Lauren really went out of their way to make this trip happen. My two teens and I did a private trek. We made it to glacier in 2 hours and had about 90+ min on ice. Went into cool cave with amazing ceiling. Overcast day so saw a lot of blue. 2 hour return hike. They provided gear,... More

Excellent, exhilarating and beautiful! Be prepped to utilize your hiking boots as you walk through various terrain on this 8 mile journey. The hike to the glacier is amazing, but being on the glacier is spectacular and a must-do for those adventurists willing to work up a sweat and experience the majesty of nature. Nate was a fantastic, kind and... More

If you are in Juneau, you absolutely HAVE to do the Mendenhall Glacier Trek with ABAK. Even if you are not going to Juneau, it's well worth a detour just to do this. Not only was it the highlight of our entire week in Alaska, it is one of the best family outings that we have ever done. My kids... More

This was by far the highlight of our trip. 5 1/2 hours on Lemon Glacier, which is a new trip they are doing. It was our family of 6 plus another couple and our 3 guides on the entire glacier! We hiked around for a few hours exploring the crevasses, drinking glacier water, hanging out....then we came upon an ice... More

I'm writing the review to comment on the quality of the equipment which was high ,A&B supplied oars at different length for exact fit , rowing mittens (Pogies), dry bags maps and more all in...

Go on this hike. They don't dummy it down because it's an excursion. It's a legitimate hike - awesome experience. Our trail was 9 miles round trip, 1500 foot elevation change, hiked on a glacier, drank water from the glacier after popping into an ice cave, beautiful sights along the way, what else can I say. Although there is some... More

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
