So much awesomeness. Friendly and professional staff. Amazing views. Enjoyable helicopter ride with very competent pilot. Energetic Huskies just wanting to run. Obliging mushers that gave us an incredible ride. Add this to your bucket list. It was truly amazing!

We travelled from Australia to Alaska and wanted a unique experience. Alpine Air delivered one that we will not forget. From the Helicopter trip to the glacier to the dogsled trip at the glacier, it was a first rate experience. Thanks for the memories!

Take the 90 minute glacier landing. Best excursion or our week in Alaska. Turner was a fantastic pilot and this company does everything with excellence. From leaving on time to making the trip a truly once in a lifetime experience.

Hi Sebastian! You have an opportunity to sit down on the sled or stand on the back runners. Both are great experiences. You do have a professional musher with you at all times to be responsible for the dog team.
