We had the best rune on the Exit glacier hike! The guide was informative, considerate of group dynamics, a.d eager to show us as many cool glacier features as possible! Definitely one of the coolest things I have ever done.

What an amazing experience. The hike was long and strenuous, but if you have hiking experience and endurance, it’s very doable. There are great views of the glacier along the hike and views of the trees and mountains. I was there in time to see the leaves turn orange/yellow. Brandon was a phenomenal tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the trees/plants and the wildlife and answered all the questions the group had. And he was great at spotting bears and goats in the mountains. Being on the glacier was an incredible experience. I was lucky enough to have a fearless group so we went all over the glacier and took countless pictures. Brandon was nice enough to take a group photo to remember the occasion. Definitely recommend the tour!!

We had an awesome day on the Exit Glacier with our guide Brandon. He was very knowledgeable, telling us so many fun facts about the berries, animals and glaciers. He took us to multiple amazing spots on the glacier hike -- moulins, crevasses, waterfalls -- wonders of nature that we've never seen before. It was a truly magical experience. We strongly recommend him and the KBA!

KBA put together an incredible trip packrafting around and downstream from a stunning glacier in the Alaskan range SW of Anchorage. Our guides, Kyle and Brandon, were super knowledgeable, personable, and adaptive to both the weather conditions and our group's needs. I'd travel with them again in a heartbeat -- thank you!
