  • Amazing experience! On our trip we saw a black bear and a brown bear!! It was really worth it. We got amazing pictures and our tour guide was very knowledgeable!

  • 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!

  • 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
