Our guide Lily for the raft trip was outstanding. Just full of the spirit we were hoping/looking for when we booked our 4hour raft trip! She knew her stuff about the natural history of the area and demonstrated an excellent sense for the rivers rapids! We are seasoned hikers but this was our first time on a glacier, so we booked our first ever guided hike. Mads was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. This hike was among one of the best experiences in my life as our amazing guide lead us to an extraordinary route around the Root glacier finding blue pools and waterfalls. Magical!

My parents and I went rafting with Lily and she was incredible. So knowledgeable of the area and such a great guide. She’s such a badass. I will definitely come back and ask for Lily as my guide.

Mads and Sarah were the best! Our group of 8 had so much fun with them. We rafted in the Glacier Lake where we learned more about the area and where some us jumped into the freezing cold glacier lake! The Kennicott River rapids were a blast! 6 of us were first timers for river rafting. Mads and Sarah did a great job guiding us!

What an amazing experience!! My wife and I went on the root glacier hiking tour with Gwen - at the beginning, she asked us what we wanted to do. Without hesitation, our goal was to jump in a blue pool. Gwen made it happen. 10/10 experience!
