Mendenall Glacier
Sep 2021
Our tour guide Casey and Ryan were amazing and kept giving us lots of information regarding the ice glaciers and how they have receded in the past. They made sure that the sections of glacier area were safe for us to walk by by scrutinizing it themselves before and very eagerly took pictures for us throughout the trip. Overall a worthwhile trip and I would suggest anyone to visit the glaciers if its in their bucket list before it all melts away.

Amazing experience and tour guides
Jul 2021
My sister and I partook in the canoe tour and glacier trek on July 27, 2021. The tour guides- Baxter and Andrew- were fantastic. Both guides made the trip memorable, and both extremely kind and helpful. The guides answered all of our questions and were very informative. We felt very safe and comfortable on the tour. The canoe trip and hike was not overly exhaustive, and certainly worth the effort. We would highly recommend this experience. As a bonus, we got some amazing photos! The tour guides took several for us and they turned out great.

A must!
Aug 2021
Our experience with Andrew and Baxter on this tour was a highlight of our three week Alaskan adventure. We'd spent the day before admiring glorious Nugget Falls and the Mendenhall Glacier from both the visitors center and on a hike along the West Glacier Trail. Both were superb experiences. But nothing could match the thrill and awe of standing atop the glacier and stepping into its brilliant blue ice caves. The 2 1/2 mile paddle to the glacier was tranquil and well paced (though some on the boat seemed to struggle with the moderate exertion), and our guides did a brilliant job sharing their knowledge of the area and their enthusiasm for its splendor. It is devastating to consider the rapid loss of this beautiful glacier to the ravages of climate change. If you're fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit Mendenhall Glacier now, I can see no better way to do so than with this company's tour

Excellent visit to Menderhall Glacier
Aug 2021
Baxter and Ryan were outstanding. The trip was safe and full of local and geological facts. They take pride in the knowledge and love and respect of the outdoors.
The experience was fun and unique. I would hire both of them if it was my company.

Do not miss this!
Aug 2021
Andrew and Ryan led us through a terrific experience.They supplied our group of about 16 with rain boots, jackets and pants, and we needed them for the rain that day. We loaded into a big canoe where you sit two to a rung and all paddle in tandem. It was a blast.
We made it across the lake with our guides telling us about the area. After landing, we were given crampons and safety instructions and were off to the ice.The ice caves and tunnels were stunning and a lake had formed within the glacier . The stunning blues of the ice defied description. Even found a stream of water running down an ice cave wall and off a ledge-voila, a glacier water fountain.THAT'S pure water and delicious to drink. We got back to the start point and had hot chocolate and coffee to warm up.It is a not to be missed adventure.

Great experience, recommended 👍
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had wonderful experience with Cassie and Marco who were our guides for the tour. They were informative, agile.They went extra mile to search beautiful ice caves for us to view and take pics. 5 miles roundtrip canoe didn’t feel tiresome with timely breaks in between. Glacier was breathtakingly beautiful and blue. Cherry on top was hot mocha+chocolate drink after completing the canoe tour!

They made everything painless and had great gear. Kept explanations short and simple. Chance of a lifetime to get that interaction with the glacier.
