I had a blast in Alaska with Above & Beyond being flown up to the Lemon Glacier - only 10 minutes heli time from Juneau. Put on crampons and harnesses and started our hike up on the glacier. We went into an ice cave as well - first time in my life - truly amazing. Very knowledgeable and sweet guides.... More

Annie is an amazingly knowledgeable and thoughtful person. I joined a full-day trek which included four people (younger than me), and had one of the best days of my two-week trip to Alaska. In excellent weather, Annie kept up a good pace, made sure we all had appropriate clothing and gear, and showed us the incredible beauty of a glacier... More

We had a fantastic trip with ABAK. We did the Glacier Paddle & Trek. At the warehouse we met the two guides for the group of about 14, Elliott and Adam. They were excellent! They were very pleasant, attentive, and safety conscious. Our group had a wide variety of abilities and they were able to make the day great for... More

We were so fortunate to have a sunny day in Juneau. We were met by our gem of a guide, Miles, who was a great conversationalist and answered all of our annoying questions about Alaska. It was just my cousin and I. We set out around 3/3:30 and there were few groups on the water. We had a great time... More

This trip is excellent! Both destination and guide (Miles) are awesome. We paddled all the way to the front of Mendenhall Glacier to marvel at its enormity. Along the way were icebergs, the Nugget Glacier Waterfall, rock formations, and a whole lot of good vibes emanating from the breathtaking beauty all around. Miles gave an overview of what was out...

We planned this months in advance (take advantage of the 20% early booking discount before November 30!), and were super excited to go on this adventure. My husband is 45 and I'm 46, and we are both overweight but active. Our son also joined us, and he is 8 years old so we did a private hike, just the three... More

I booked the 9 mile trek with my 12 year old son. I wasn't sure whether I will be able to make it. I was recovering from a shoulder rotator cuff injury and had spent a week touring interior Alaska before the cruise experience heading south to Vancouver. Luckily, it was just the two of us and ABAK entertained us... More

Having done a lot of research on-line, this is one of the few companies I can find that allows someone to traverse INSIDE a glacier. The paddle and trek ice cave excursion exceeded by expectations on every level, as being inside an glacier ice cave is truly a once in a lifetime experience. Even though the company clearly states that... More

Booked this tour which was already a stretch to our budget at $300us pp after chatting back and forth before leaving Australia. Like others had stated, firstly we were expecting kayaks but we're in an 8 person canoe which is definitely much harder work to paddle than a kayak, and secondly, I was sold on the opportunity for the ice...

It was an overcast drizzly day but we were given very good waterproof clothing and enjoyed a very isolated trip out to the glacier with our guide. We were the only group on the lake and we got to paddle right up close to icebergs and the glacier itself while other cruise guests only got to see the glacier from... More
