I don't regret paying for the price because the experience was amazing and truly unforgettable. I booked through cruise line the helicopter to mendenhall glacier and then dogsledding and honestly it's the side of Alaska I love. The helicopter gives you these breathtaking views that one would never see or know about. Once on arrival you are greeted by a... More

This was a fabulous adventure, one that will never fade from our memories! We booked this dog sledding helicopter extravaganza directly through our cruise ship, the Celebrity Infinity; however I corresponded several times in advance directly with Temsco as our daughter has a physical disability and I wanted to make sure they were cool with that. The staff at Temsco... More

We chose this as our excursion while in Juneau as part of our Alaskan cruise, and I must say this was one of those experiences that neither of us will ever forget! It was very expensive, but my wife had never actually been in snow before and I was going to make sure that she got to have that experience.... More

Having never been in a helicopter, I was a little nervous about it. Nothing to worry about. Not much different than a plane - just louder with better views. After a safety briefing, the ride was about 15 minutes. The pilot drops you off on the glacier where knowledgeable guides take over. It's like being in another world. You have... More

The ride up to dog sledding on Mendenhall Glacier was awesome. Weather was fantastic, pilots were friendly and reliable. Matt and Tim with the dog sledding team were professional and friendly and explained any question we had. They definitely had a clear passion for what they are doing.

We flew out past Mendenhall glacier to Gilkey glacier and landed like we were landing on the moon. We explored the pools of crystal clear glacier water and tread on the ice pebbles covering it. Soon it was time to move on but the best was yet to come. We flew up and up toward the Juneau ice fields and... More

My husband and I booked our Mendenhall Helicopter Ride and Dog Sledding Excursion through our cruise line. We might have paid a little more than what's desirable but we had an absolute amazing time. So many times was I lost in the beautiful sights that I would forget to take pictures. The excursion began with a bus ride to the... More

We did the helicopter ride up to the glacier for the dog sledding experience! Loved all of it! It was about 15 minutes each way in the helicopter with awesome views of Juneau, mountains and the glacier! Then we had about 45 minutes on the glacier with the dogs and for pictures!

We got to Juneau (on purpose) before the cruise ships arrived. Most of the summer season tours and operators were not operating yet. Temsco, however, is a year round operation that flies people and supplies out into the boondocks on charter so, if they have a helicopter and pilot, they will be willing to fly you. Because only two passengers... More

We went on the helicopter tour to Mendenhall glacier to go dog sledding. The pilot jumped over the mountain like a jackrabbit and it was exhilarating to land right on the glacier in dog camp. We loved talking to mushers, some who participated in the Iditarod last year, and driving the sled across the ice & snow. An experience of... More
