My daughter and I had one of the best days of our lives on the extended glacier dog sledding tour in Juneau. The helicopter rides to and from the glacier were breathtaking. Once on the glacier, they made us feel like part of the team. We helped get the dogs ready with their booties and sunscreen, we drove the sled,... More

In the fall of 2013 we booked 3 tickets for an Era Helicopter tour as part of our May 2014 Princess Cruisetour package. We arrived in Denali in early May, having had the tickets booked for months. The day of our flight, we were told by the Princess rep at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge that Era called to say... More

This trip would rate 5 stars with us except for one thing. It's weather dependent and it gets cancelled a lot, if you are on a cruise and only have one day in Juneau be prepared with a back up plan. It took us two trips and 3 reservations to actually got to do it. Once we did all we... More

I was nervous about the excursion, but I loved every minute of it. From the helicopter ride over the glaciers to driving the dog sled. I can highly recommend this outfit for a shore excursion.

We had a wonderful pilot, Jiery, that took us to the glacier. We really enjoyed the dog sled ride and helicopter ride. Such a wonderful experience! The only downside, it rained the whole trip! I definitely recommend this trip!

Although I was nervous about being in a helicopter, after reading many reviews and particularly on this company, I decided it was a MUST DO while we were in Alaska! Thrilled that I listened to my gut and encouraged my husband to sign us up. Everything was PERFECT! The staff very efficient, and our pilot, Michael, is a Greek God!... More

Our entire Alaska trip and cruise was centered on this tour. The tour begins and ends with a spectacular 30 minute helicopter flight from Juneau across the Juneau ice fields to the musher's camp on the Maidenhall Glacier. At the glacier you will be introduced to your experienced musher where you will assist in fitting booties and harnessing your dog... More

Amazing staff, including Emily, Laura, and especially Wayne. Come check 'em out if you're cruising thru the area. Visit one of many glaciers and experience one of drinking water's least thought of sources in person.

If you want to go dog sledding on top of a glacier, then this excursion is for you. We did not book this tour through the cruise ship, but we had no problems being picked up or brought back in time. The company is extremely professional and seeing as how I never flew in a helicopter before, I was a... More
