This was the highpoint of our Alaska adventure. The staff were great - they took us on an awesome sled dog trail and my husband and I were both able to experience being the musher! Our musher guide was an actual Iditarod musher! We were able to interact with the sled dogs and even got to hold the puppies. The helicopter ride to the glacier was super! The pilot was knowledgeable and we felt quite safe. It was fun learning about the dog camp and, of course, the sled dog racers. It was worth every penny. Don't miss it.

Hello 833franklint, Thanks for taking the time to write about your experience with us. We indeed have the best staff and dogs! The combination of taking a helicopter ride and getting to mush dogs is the ultimate Alaskan experience. I hope the rest of your trip to Alaska was just as enjoyable. Happy trails!

This tour was the highlight of our late June/early July Disney cruise to Alaska. Our group of adults and teenaged girls were enthralled by life on a glacier and the thrill of being pulled by an enthusiastic dog team. My family's guide, Matt, shared so many interesting stories of his life racing and caring for his amazing team. His passion for the sport was contagious! It was truly the experience of a life time and we cannot rave about it enough. Thank you to all the people who made us feel welcome and gave us memories to enjoy for years.

Had an amazing day out here. Starting with the helicopter ride up to the glazier to the amazing dog slaying trip. Shaynee was our guide for the dog slay and made us feel very welcome. Once in a life time experience but can't wait go do it all again. Meeting the puppies at the end just made it all the more special. Great job Guys!

This was a highlight of our Alaska vacation. Shaynee Traska, our musher, was amazing. She was so engaging and taught us so much about sled dogs. It was fascinating to hear about her experiences as an Iditarod finisher! It is clear she loves her dogs and loves sharing her passion with others. The dogs were very sweet and friendly, even though they were excited to run. They even had puppies for everyone to snuggle. We struggled with this excursion because of the price. We decided to splurge and we are so glad we did!

This was truly a "bucket list" tour! The helicopter ride was amazing, so much beauty everywhere you looked! Getting to "mush" a team of sled dogs is something my kids will remember forever. Our musher, Annie, was such an expert and so full of enthusiasm! This experience may cost a little more than some other tours, but it was worth every penny!
