Mostly Flora This Trip

Small group. Very knowledgeable guide. Didn't see much Fauna this trip (hardly any, anywhere we went last week) - did see a very interesting native frog. Flora - quite a few edible plants and our guide showed us the plants to stay away from.

Relaxing and informative hike
Desiree
, May 2021
Matt is awesome! Very knowledgeable about the area and hikes. This tour is also great if you’re a solo traveler or beginner in hiking who wants to learn more about nature. We weren’t able to see a moose or a bear (they’re unpredictable) but the hike inside the rain forrest was quite relaxing and fun. This is definitely a must and I recommend it to people who are in Anchorage for a short amount of time. Thanks Matt for the awesome trip!

Thanks again Desiree! I hope you are able to catch a glimpse of our Moose during your stay. Take Care.

Flora and Fauna tour is a great experience during which you can hike along South Fork Eagle River trail to see Barbara Falls. Matthew has lots of information about flora and fauna, it is like a real biology lesson. Highly recommend, great tour for unforgettable experiences and photos

Hello Ava! What fun it was taking you out the other day. Thank you for your kind words, and, who knows? I might just have to get a Doctorate in Biology one day! 🙂 Take Care, Matt
