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.

We were originally booked for the Denver Glacier Dog Sledding and Scenic Flight. Unfortunately, the clouds were very low-lying and the visibility caused the cancellation of our excursion. Luckily, the Glacier visit was still a go, so they switched us immediately without a problem. The helicopter ride was fun and our son was able to sit in the front. The... More

This experience was honestly the best and coolest experience of my life! I genuinely cannot recommend it enough! We booked this experience through the Disney Cruise Line while we were on the Wonder in Alaska. After taking a bus to the Alaska Icefield Expedition Heliport, we were greeted by a very friendly staff who answered all of our questions, showed... More

I can't recommend this tour enough, it was the highlight of our trip. We took a helicopter ride over top a glacier that was incredible within itself. We land in the middle of no where on top of said glacier surrounded by mountains that appeared to be just a few hundred feet away, but in truth were miles away. We... More

We booked this trip through our Princess Cruise and we are very glad we did as it was the highlight of our holiday which was filled with many amazing experiences. The whole outfit is very professional and the experience was very worth the money we paid. On a beautiful sunny day the helicopter flight was full of stunning vistas. Absolutely... More

What an experience. We took the helicopter over the glaciers to the camp, and that was an experience itself. We were amazed to see the mushers and workers in tee shirts. The dog sleding was amazing - one of the highlights of our Alaskan Princess Cruise/Tour. Our Musher, Riley Dyche, was so helpful and friendly and shared his life experiences... More

what an amazing experience! I will never forget this day. The dogs were very friendly and the scenery was breathtaking. I was so excited that I didn't even feel cold until I had to leave. The dogs are well taken care of and the guides are great. The helicopter ride was beautiful and exciting.. it's worth the money; trust me.

We booked this excursion from a Disney cruise the last week of August, 2015, for me, my husband and my kids (ages 12 & 9). It was worth every penny. We received a safety briefing from the helicopter staff, donned our glacier boots, and off we went. The helicopter ride was wonderful. Once on the glacier, the staff was friendly... More

This was worth every penny. It's the most expensive cruise excursion we've ever taken, but it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The helicopter ride was breathtaking (if a little bit terrifying...) and the crew at the dog camp was friendly and knowledgeable. They took great pictures of us, we got to hold puppies, and two weeks later we are still... More
