We've been many places and been on many great excursions but this one was amazing! Our first helicopter ride was awesome and awe inspiring. The site of the Mendenhall Glacier from the air was absolutely breathtaking. Then we saw the dog camp from the air. I think the dogs were as excited to see us as we were to see... More

Guests for an Alaska cruise are usually of older age. If you travel with kids and teenager or would like to try something more interesting, dog-sledding is for you. My two sons had so much fun. A 10-minute helicopter ride took you to the glacier where the huskies and their trainers live. The dogs are so cute and absolutely crave... More

Most amazing excursion when you are in Juneau. 10 minute helicopter ride to the top of the glacier where the sled dogs are raised and trained. The glacier is majestic and spellbinding. Once in a lifetime event

But once you go through the safety videos and the get briefed by their knowledgeable staff we knew we were in good hands. The helicopter ride was... More

This tour is amazing. It made my Alaska cruise complete. Thank you Elliot and all the dogs! This was truly worth the money. I would do it again if I were ever in Alaska again.

Our family did the dogsledding and helicopter tour in Skagway and it was our favourite excursion from our trip to Alaska. Very well organized, everyone was very friendly. A once in a lifetime experience! One thing to note is that we were not able to take any bags or extra camera equipment on the helicopter up, this included gopro accessories... More

I took the helicopter and dog sledding tour when my cruise ship, Celebrity Solstice, called on Skagway. The helicopter ride was a little short only about 25 minutes, but the dog sledding was awesome! The Alaska huskies were so friendly and well trained, the ride was about 1.5 miles and we had a chance to greet the puppy husky at... More

We tried the helicopter and dogsled tour in Skagway and wow, what an experience! On arrival, our party of 3 joined 2 others for a quick security briefing and the fitting of some warm attire. Shortly after, we were flying over the most amazing scenery... and it wasn't scary (only somewhat overwhelmed at moments). The pilot provided interesting information during... More
