We started our 2-week vacation with this dog sledding trip on Alpine Air Alaska, and we could have just ended our trip here, too. It doesn't get any better. It was a lifetime high. The office folks outfitted us in very welcome attire for the glacier and then did it all with wit and efficiency. The helicopter ride was perfectly... More

The Dog Sledding was the highlight of my Alaskan adventure. This was my first helicopter ride and my first dog sledding adventure. The helicopter ride was smooth and beautiful. If you can sit in the front, the view is worth it. The staff loves dogs! You spend about 30 minutes understanding the history of dog sledding and then you are... More

Truly one of the highlights of our month long trip. If you don't get in the air in Alaska, you've missed the beauty and vastness of this beautiful area. Our trip with Alpine Air exceeded expectations. It was a clear day first of all. There were only 3 of us, including the pilot, so it was very personal. We landed... More

I went along with my family and friends. We had one of the best experience of glacier landing and the pilots of the helicopters were really nice and friendly. They explained everything on the ride. They also found a great spot to land both of the helicopters close to each other so we can have good family pictures and good... More

Expensive BUT well worth it! The view from the helicopter was amazing and the dogs and pups were adorable. Loved having a ride on a sled, as first sitting in the front seat and then standing up at the back. Wow! I did 8 tours in Alaska and this was one of my favourite experiences.

While in Anchorage, we rented a car and took the 45 minute drive to Girdwood. There we took the short but exciting helicopter ride from the Alpine Air Alaska headquarters to Punchbowl Glacier where we got to meet the sled dogs and trainers, and were then given a dog sled ride led by one of the mushers. We were mostly... More

We went on the hour and a half flight of a lifetime, a truly once in a lifetime experience! And the staff, from the ladies who showed/explained us the ropes to our great pilot, John could not have been nicer. This trip should definitely be part of your travel plans.
