Claire knew all the names of the plants, and although we didn't see any animals, only a few birds the walk and education about perma-frost and the plant struggle to survive was informative. Claire also shared her experience of living in dry cabin and what was involved in living here. It was a small group tour of 4 and the walk was easy.

Our tour guide was awesome. Super knowledgeable and really fun. We got a great education on the geology and biology of the area. The one disappointment is that we were under the impression that we would get to do more hiking and that we would have access to parts of the park that we couldn’t/shouldn’t access alone. I think this tour is probably better for the beginner or completely inexperienced hiker. But I seriously can’t say enough good things about the guide. He was awesome. It was my misunderstanding of what I was purchasing.
