After a short drive, you pick up the supplies and then are taken to the glacier. You get in your kayaks and paddle around the lake. The guides give a good tour... More

This was the highlight of our Alaskan cruise. I booked this independent of our NCL cruise. It was my husband, our 12 year twins and myself and a young couple from Australia. That was it. No big bus, or crowd of people. Our guide picked us up at the port and we went to there warehouse to get into our... More

We were on an Alaskan cruise and signed up for the Glacier Paddle & Trek. The meeting point was just a minute away from where the ships docked. The girl who was meeting had a sign, but she was just sitting at a table with the sign face down. There were 25 people signed up for the tour gathered around... More

This will always be one of our top ten adventures! Who gets to drink water straight from a glacier stream? And it is amazing! We did the Canoe Paddle and Glacier Trek, guided by a young couple who'd met doing glacier research. They were excellent, informative, and very safe. ABAK provides everything you need, clothes and gear from head to... More

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
