Great guides who made the trip lots of fun, despite the steady all-day rain. This is not a trip for the out-of-shape.
This trip was the highlight of our Alaska and BC trip. Thanks to our wonderful guides Kirstin and Sam. The hike to the glacier, onto the glacier and under the glacier ice caves was great, especially the ice caves. Well worth doing.
You really do need to be in good shape to do this hike.
Awesome hike. Got to see some amazing ice caves and our guide Corey was the best.
I indeed wanted to let you know that this trip was amazingly awesome and this has been one of my most wonderful trip to the Mendenhall Glacier.
The day was completely awesome without much rain and sun with a lot of hiking in a green rain-forest which was very fantastic and post that we had spectacular views of the Glacier mountain which is out of the world experience. I would definitely recommend this trip to others. Also, if you can please pass on the comments to our Guide Hanna - Above and Beyond Travels who has been cordial and very patient to travel along with us and made this trip an amazing one. We had got in a great information while trekking to the Glacier and had a great summary of rain-forest along with the Glacier with the amazing Ice Caves views that was spectacular and an unforgettable experience.
Unbelievable! My wife and I took a 7 day Inside Passage cruise and this was by far the best experience of our trip. Climbing down into a cave under the Mendenhall glacier was something unexpected and was the best part of the trek. The hike to and from the glacier is no joke so be prepared for a very challenging day. I have climbed many mountains in Colorado and this was as difficult as any of the climbs I have done.
This trip is definitely for people who are in good shape and not afraid of hiking in a little rain. The day we spent in Juneau was very wet, but the experience of climbing on a glacier was worth the discomfort. The guides were experienced and enthusiastic. Make sure you bring comfortable hiking boots, it's best if they are waterproof.
The best excursion in Alaska! We have been on 8 cruises and always book excursions and this was without a doubt the best. You definitely need to be in shape as it is challenging.
