We originally booked the canoe and hike but the rainy weather prevented the trip from being conducted safely. The manager (Katelynn) was wonderful and offered us another option, while refunding a portion of what we paid. The new itinerary was phenomenal and our guides were delightful! Brittany and Madisyn were fantastic! We would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Juneau!

It was an experience that will last forever for us. Above & Beyond Alaska provides all essential gear: rubber pants, coats, backpacks, hiking sticks, helmet etc. Also our assigned guide (Mike) was so helpful and thorough. Our family of 8 enjoyed this excursion and I can say was a highlight of our week long tour in Alaska.

Our guides were SO AWESOME! They were so knowledgeable about the area and obviously love what they do. We were picked up from our hotel right on time and we were provided with snacks, waterproof gear, and water bottles to take home! On our trip we saw sea lions, seals, and tons of different birds. I highly recommend this tour... More

We did the canoe paddle and glacier trek. It was by far our favorite excursion in Alaska. We lucked out with the weather, it was a beautiful clear day. Our guides were very knowledgeable and all the supplies we needed for the hike were provided.

The Mendenhall Glacier canoe/hike is an ABSOLUTE MUST for any trip to Juneau. I just returned from Alaska with my parents and we had the pleasure to partake in this excursion with easily the best tour guides, Mike and Casey. While I am certain this excursion would be great with any guide from ABAK, I know for certain we had... More

My husband signed us up for the hike to the Mendenhall Glacier and it was honestly a little beyond his capabilities. There is a LOT of rock scrambling which we both have a hard time with (hey, anxiety!), and then I fell twice (I do that, though), and Adam rocked it - helping my husband up a sheer scramble of...

This was our first trip to Alaska. My husband and I did the Tongass National Forest kayak tour on a beautiful, sunny day in May. We were so lucky that we were the only two on the tour along with three crew members, Casey, Sarah and Merwan, who were so much fun and knew so much about the area. We... More

Amazing, incredible and once in a lifetime experience thanks too Casey & Mike. It was like taking a tour with "very knowledgeable" friends because they went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. They need a raise for sure...😬

It's hard to find words on how amazing this adventure was. From paddling the canoe across the lake past waterfalls and mini icebergs to the trek through a blue ice cave and on to the glacier, this is the adventure of a lifetime.
