All About Above & Beyond Alaska
Above & Beyond Alaska Wilderness Adventures
Above & Beyond Alaska, LLC (ABAK), is a local guiding company based in Juneau, the capital city, that is nestled below the Coast Mountains and beside the ocean in the heart of Southeast Alaska’s temperate rainforest . We have been exploring the Tongass National Forest, glaciers of the Juneau Icefield, and waters of Alaska’s inside passage for over 25 years and guiding others since 2002. ABAK offers an opportunity to explore any of the environments found around Juneau by kayak, foot, boat, or plane. Our goal is to provide a complete Alaskan wilderness experience by sharing with our clients our passion, technical know-how, and natural history knowledge.
The ABAK Story
To the lover of wilderness, Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world.
fter spending a decade working for other guiding companies in the area, company founders Becky and Sean Janes followed their dream of starting their own guiding service with friends. They wished to head in a different direction than other guiding outfits in town by providing smaller and customizable trips. Established in 2002, Above and Beyond Alaska, or ABAK, has grown into the premier guiding company in the Juneau area specializing in wilderness trips to experience glaciers, bears, and whales.
In 2022, Alaska Seaplanes brought Above and Beyond Alaska into its company family. Now as part of Alaska Seaplanes and with the continued leadership of Sean and Becky, ABAK will look to expand its outstanding tours, opening more opportunities for exploration and adventure for its devoted customers.
Our guides have received in-depth training that complements their personal experiences in both ocean and mountain environments. Additionally, they are certified in both CPR and advanced first aid. However, it is their passion for the outdoors and their ability to blend expert instruction and interpretive knowledge for individuals, couples, families, and small groups of any ability level that make our trips unique and memorable.
