My family of 4 (2 50-somethings and 25 and 18 year-old daughters) had a private Mendenhall glacier hike, guided by Sam. It was AMAZING! The hike itself is strenuous but doable, and that part is lovely, walking through the woods. The glacier part was so cool, though (pun intended!). Sam showed us how to use the crampons and set up...

On our inside passage cruise we decided to do the Brown bear viewing at Pack Creek and we were not disappointed! We saw at least 6 female brown bears and at least 4 cubs. We were lucky enough to see them from the viewing platform at the creek as we'll as the from the beach. We had a mother bear... More

We did the ice trek and Mendenhall caves with Above and Beyond. They were great during the booking process, fast responses and great communication. Arielle was our guide and we had a blast with her. The glacier was beautiful and exploring its beauty was definitely the highlight of our trip. The caves were simply stunning. They provided snacks and all... More

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
