Itinerary
If you select hotel pickup, you’ll kick off your Alaskan experience with an informative and entertaining van ride from your Juneau hotel to the heliport to begin your amazing helicopter tour. Board a state-of-the-art helicopter and take to the skies over the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield. Marvel at aerial views as glacier-carved mountains unfold before your eyes.
Land at a secluded camp on Herbert Glacier for your dogsled ride nestled among mountain peaks in a vast, ancient snowfield, you’ll feel like you’re the only group in the world on this glacier landing. You’ll be greeted by a team of Alaskan huskies at the camp for your dogsled ride and you’llhop in the sled and let your dogs pull you and your family and friends along the magnificent snowfields. While on the tour, you’ll have the choice of riding the runners or being comfortably seated on the sled.
Back at camp, expert mushers will tell you about the famous Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race and about their first-hand experiences riding dogsleds in the Alaskan backcountry. The owner of the tour company won the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race, and also finished the Iditarod in 2nd place -- all in the same year! You’ll have opportunities to ask questions, take photos and even dress up in original Iditarod Trail dogsled gear and finishing bibs.
When your time on the glacier is over, hop back in the helicopter and savor the views again as you rise up and over the icefield back to Juneau. Upon landing you’ll have the opportunity for final photos and time to warm up before enjoying a return van trip back to your hotel.
The total tour time is approximately 1.5 hours, from liftoff at the heliport to return to the helicopter base. When you land, you’ll be taken back to your Juneau hotel.

GREAT fun and wonderful experience

The helicopter ride was smooth like you were floating. The musher was great fun and the sled ride was cool. Enjoyed petting the dogs and see how they are kept. The teenagers with us and the adults loved holding the puppies. Great fun.
