We had the best time hiking up to Beaver Lake area. The waterfalls were spectacular. The trail was clean and it was good exercise. Virgin timber. Foliage was beautiful and Nick was a wonderful guide describing plant uses and local lore. Laura arranged to picked up at our hotel too. It was easy to coordinate and there are several hike locations to choose from. She will help you based on your ability, size of group and duration of the trip. Carry water. Dress in layers. Take in the beauty of this rain forest. So glad we did this hike.

Booked this last minute and it did not disappoint! Even though it was overcast and a little misty at times the hike was amazing! Our guide Graci was so sweet and fun to chat with all along our walk. Shared lots of info about the area and even gave us some great suggestions for in town after our hike. The hike was exactly what we were looking for in difficulty and length (about 4 miles). Highly recommend for anyone looking for a more personal hiking adventure.

This was such a great excursion!! Our guide Callie was so nice and fun! She was also very knowledgeable. All the tours are private, so it was just my friend/me and the guide. This is such a nice way to explore Alaska and get some peace/quiet away from the cruise ship. We did Harbor Mountain Trail and had a great time. It was a foggy day, so we didn’t get the amazing lookout views that we hoped for, but the wildflowers and lush greenery had us in awe. The hike was moderately difficult. We will definitely do a hike with Alpenglowadventuressitka when we return to AK! Such a great small business to support.

I have visited Sitka several times and wanted something different—a unique hiking experience. Laura suggested a fantastic trip for us, and I booked it right away. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to make it in time and had to cancel the reservation. We plan to reschedule for another time. Laura's customer service, professionalism, and flexibility are outstanding. Despite the unexpected situation, she handled everything with grace and understanding. I can only recommend her to everyone visiting Sitka. Her dedication to providing an exceptional experience is truly commendable.

I booked this so that we could see the beauty of Sitka without having to figure it out on our own, and I am so glad I did! My husband and I (51) and our 14 year old son met Laura (amazing, knowledgeable and sweet!!), the owner of Apenglow Adventures at the Port. Laura communicated before-hand inquiring about our desires and skill level and selected the perfect wooded hike along a gorgeous river. She explained all of the native tree and plant species to us and it was so lush and green. She even brought hot chocolate for us to enjoy! I highly recommend this over the cookie cutter hiking tours. We only saw like 4 other people and it was completely tailored to us! Thank you, Laura! You are a lovely human being and tour guide!

This was an easy scenic hike along the river. Laura was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend!

We had an excellent time hiking with Laura on the Beaver Lake/Herring Cove Trail. We arrived on the Norwegian Bliss and had time to take the shuttle downtown and walk through the Sitka National Historic Park before Laura picked us up there. It was a short drive to the trailhead at Blue Lake Campground, and we stopped for a minute on the way to look down at the Fortress of the Bear from the road. Our total hiking time was just over 2 hours through the misty forest and Laura had trekking poles, water, and snacks for us. She dropped us off at our cruise terminal when we were ready to go. Overall it was a very enjoyable and convenient way to take the hike we wanted instead of doing a group hike offered by the cruise.

Just finishing up my Alaska cruise and this was definitely the best, most authentic tour I experienced. While other ports could be scenic, Sitka was, by far, the most authentic. Other tours offered great views (Juneau and Skagway) but they’re also “tourist ports” offering cookie cutter tours and tourist traps…Sitka was just Sitka and Laura and Nick were amazing. Laura is very friendly, knowledgeable and just the type of person you immediately feel comfortable with. She offered to tailor my tour to my own personal needs and interests, which is great but I just let her pick because she knows the land and what to expect. The hike we did was invigorating with scenic stops throughout. At times it was challenging - because thats the way I wanted it, but I was never overwhelmed. Sitka is largely unspoiled, since it is new to cruising and I hope it stays that way. The community has no better ambassador than Laura. The hike made me want to come back to Sitka and experience more of what it has to offer (would really like to just spend a week there). Compared to other tours, this was a bit more pricey (I was on my own) but absolutely worth every penny. The next day I did hear some passengers complain about their tours (cookie cutter tourist trap type) and my only thought was “they should have booked with Alpenglow.” - you get what you pay for. Thanks Laura. Had an amazing time. Best tour of my entire Alaska experience.

Laura was an amazing guide! We got to hike the Mt. Edgecumbe volcano in all of its glory. A beautiful day in Alaska, with whales in the water and sandhill cranes flying over the island. We had an amazing trip. The guide was friendly and tailored the trip to meet our skill level. Would recommend to anybody.

Laura was great! Took time to explain everything and gave us options on which hike we wanted to go on. She was very informative about everything. We would definitely recommend booking here.
