August 18, 2014. The weather was cloudy with rain showers encountered going to and from the glacier. The weather made for a more dramatic and beautiful flight experience. The staff was fabulous taking care of our every need expeditiously. The experience riding the dog sled on the glacier was tremendous and getting to greet and pet the dogs was very... More

Went with my family, husband, kids 11 & 14 and parents 70+. We all had an outstanding time. From the helicopter ride to the mushing it was all incredible. The day started badly, we were set for a trip at 8:15 but were told the weather would not cooperate. Luckily, Era had room to book us on a later tour... More

This was the highlight of our Alaskan cruise and experience. We loved taking the helicopter flight; the area and glaciers below were beautiful! We also loved the dog sledding camp. It is a bit pricey, but definitely worth the money. We were lucky because due to weather, flights had been canceled for 3-4 days. The dogs were super excited when... More

Took the four glacier plus dogsledding adventure and was totally worth it. Allison was a great musher and our pilot pointed out all the sites along the way. We were initially cancelled due to ominous skies and fog and were so glad they were able to reaccomodate us for the afternoon.

The glaciers are a must while in Juneau and Era provided excellent service! Our pilot Jordan was great as he safely navigated us to the glacier and provided interesting commentary. I highly recommend!

The Juneau Era team took us via helicopter to one of the glaciers so we could experience a real dog sled ride. Don't confuse this with the other "dog sled trips" which use dog sleds with wheels. This is 1000% better - real sleds and real dogs. The helicopter ride was beautiful with an opportunity to see several glaciers and... More

We took the extended tour and had lunch in the dog camp following a tour of the camp and had a mush with the dog team where we were able to help prepare the team. The helicopter ride in and out of the glacier was amazing!! I would recommend this tour to everyone

Yo Folks, Forget horsepower. This tour is about dog power. This truly Alaskan adventure gives you the rare opportunity to mush your own sled team across a snow capped glacier. The Amazing team taught us the tricks of the trade from seasoned veterans of the legendary Alaskan Iditarod Race. We even mastered the all-important commands of Hike! Gee! and Haw!... More

Another one of those 'spiritual' moments. I didn't want to get off the glacier, so amazing... I just wanted to explore and take it in... From a review standpoint, the chopper service - Era - was great. The pilot took us for an exciting flight to the landing spot on the glacier, then a great tour around the mountains on... More
