Description: Featuring Iditarod and Yukon Quest Athletes, Alaska Icefield Expeditions...
Featuring Iditarod and Yukon Quest Athletes, Alaska Icefield Expeditions executes summer dog sledding camps on the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and the Denver Glacier outside of Skagway. Accessible only by helicopter, excursions include a combined 25-30 minutes of scenic flight time on the way to and from our glacier dog camps. Once in camp, you'll experience the musher way of life and meet the true athletes, the dogs, of Alaska's official state sport. Following introductions and instruction, you'll take to the sled for 25-30 minutes of mushing beneath the awe inspiring backdrop of the Juneau Ice Field.

on our recent Regent Alaska cruise, this was the one excursion we were looking forward to for months. And it DID NOT disappoint at all. Matter of fact, it exceeded our expectations. From the amazing helicopter ride to dogsledding itself, it was even more exhilarating and fun that we thought it would be. Thanks to Tim and his team for... More

This was my family's favorite excursion when we were on our cruise. Please see my review about Temsco for lots of detail about this whole excursion, including the dog sledding. Although this is the most expensive excursion we have ever done on a cruise...and we had to multiply it by 5 people...it was a once in a lifetime experience...and well... More

What an amazing experience from the helicopter ride to the glacier landing to the scenery (even in the fog & rain). The sled dogs were a rambunctious lot and the mushers & crew were enthusiastic and informative. We were cold & wet but that didn’t matter at all. We could have ridden even longer.

My wife and I took a Norwegian NCL-Star cruise in Sept, 2004. It was a great thrilling experience of our lives. My wife and I consider that this trip was a highlight of our lifetime and would not have missed it for the world. It fulfilled our dreams of traveling in every way possible. We departed from Seattle, WA to... More

The adventure starts with a helicopter tour of the glacier and then we landed on the glacier at the dog sledding camp. The dogs are healthy and happy and the staff is very nice. First they let us interact with the beautiful dogs, then we were off. They have a course set up for the sleds and they allow you... More

One of the highlights of our Vacation. Very Good and Professional service. Would have been happier if the helicopter ride was of more duration. It was short. Sledding experience was perfect.

The helicopter ride was a scenic wonderland. Loved the dog camp and the sledding experience. The staff was terrific and I felt very safe the whole time. It was a panorama of snow and mountains. A highlight of my Alaskn trip.

WOW!! What an experience! Highly recommend this trip. Once in a lifetime experience! Our flight was delayed 2hours due to weather but we made it! The Temsco crew were great! We had to land on the glacier lower than the usual landing site due to clouds but got a ride in a SnoCat up to the dogs!! Matt Hall was... More
