Great experience!!
, Sep 2021
Absolutely the experience of a lifetime! My guide, Jesse was the best! Very knowledgeable and experienced as well as personable. I would definitely book another adventure.
Phenomenal Glacier Excursion
, Aug 2021
Our trek on Exit Glacier was probably one of the best hikes we’ve ever done. It was gorgeous and such an incredible experience to explore a glacier. Our super knowledgeable (history and environmental science!) guide Jonathan is someone we'd definitely call again to lead a trip/excursion. The tour company was also wonderful - picking us up in town where we are staying and dropping us off again at the end of the day.
Great Experience!
, Aug 2021
Our Exit Glacier hike was certainly a highlight to our trip in Seward. Our guide Jesse was well equipped and very knowledgeable of Alaska. I’d recommend to anyone who can hike 5-7 miles with a decent steady ascent. It was not as hard as we were expecting.
Exit stage, everywhere!

The guides were great. Very patient and hugely informative. The time out on the Glacier was surreal and gives you a whole new appreciation of nature.

Highlight of My Alaska Experience
, Aug 2021
Without a doubt, the highlight of my Alaska trip. **Note, this is a STRENUOUS hike, so be ready. Definitely a workout, but so worth it. The views are fantastic, and it's a great feeling getting up to the glacier. Lunch up there is just the cherry on top. Jonathan was a great guide. If you're going do one tour in or around the Kenai Fjords area, do this one. Just make sure you're well rested!

We had an absolute wonderful time with our guide Jonathon. Very knowledgeable about the glacier and equipment. Weather cleared up beautifully for us and it ended up being a little over 7 miles total round trip. Would not recommend for a beginner hiker or if you have a fear of heights. Also secure your electronics, RIP iPhone.

My adventure trip was canceled last minute by them as the guide was unwell. It’s hard to understand that they didn’t have more tour guides for an experience such as this which I had booked almost a month ahead of my trip.
Exceptional memorable and wonderful!!!

Caleb and Emma, our guides, were 'OVER THE TOP' EXCEPTIONAL!!! Very patient, very kind, very genuine and incredibly informative and knowledgeable!!! Was one of the highlights of our trip and an experience we will never forget! Thanks especially to Emma who was so very kind and considerate of my wife! I cannot recommend these two or the excursion through their company higher! Sincerely Kent, Debra and family from SLC, UT!!!
Worth it!

The glacier is absolutely stunning, our guide Kyle had a lot of information and skills, we felt very safe and comfortable. He tailored the trip to our wants and skills and group size. I highly recommend this tour, it was one of my favorite things I did in Alaska
