Amazing trip! Canoe across a glacial lake, hike on a glacier - these are things most people never get to do, and the fact that it's all disappearing makes it even more poignant. Above & Beyond are true to their name with excellent gear, guides,...More

The ephemeral nature of ice caves (glaciers are always moving and changing!) means ABAK can't guarantee you'll get to go in one. I was lucky enough to get to experience one and WOW! what an experience of a lifetime. However, I'd still be giving this...More
