True Alaskan Experience! Take a helicopter flightseeing tour and experience dogsledding on one of the many local glaciers in Juneau.
Feel the excitement as a team of 10 to 12 sled dogs pull a combination sled configuration made up of two sleds accommodating up to groups of four.
What’s on your Alaskan bucket list? Flying high above breathtaking views of Alaskan landscapes? Walking on a massive glacier? Zipping through the snow on a sled pulled by a team of Alaskan huskies? This tour offers all this and more.
You begin at a comfortable heli-base where you will be outfitted in glacier boots and given a safety briefing by friendly tour attendants. From here you will load up into a state of the art helicopter and be whisked away to begin your dog sledding adventure. Highly trained pilots will narrate the scenic helicopter ride on your way to the main attraction, the mighty Glacier. During your flight, you will have a bird’s eye view of the lush Tongass Rainforest, soaring mountain peaks, and the spectacular Mendenhall Glacier.
As you touch down at an authentic dog mushing camp, you will be greeted by professional dog mushers and their energetic companions, the Alaskan Huskies! Experience the unique thrill as these athletes pull you through the snow that blankets the top of the glacier.
Take turns directing the dogs with your musher and relaxing in the sled. After your exhilarating sledding experience, you will have time to cuddle with puppies and chat with your dog musher before boarding your helicopter to return to the heli-base. Experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and check off that item on your bucket list.
