Amazing dog sled trip on sunny day

My family of four did a helicopter tour / dog sled camp trip in July 2016. We were fortunate to have sunny weather and temps in the 70s at the water. Although seemingly pretty... read more

My family of four did a helicopter tour / dog sled camp trip in July 2016. We were fortunate to have sunny weather and temps in the 70s at the water. Although seemingly pretty young, all of the Temsco staff were professional and polite. We had the helicopter to ourselves and our pilot gave us a great tour up to... More

TEMSCO does an excellent job with this trip! Everyone from the staff, to the pilots, to the glacier guides were wonderful. The flight to and from the glacier was absolutely stunning. It is well worth the time and money. Walking on Meade Glacier was wonderful... we were able to hear the glacier creek and grown, we saw the incredible blue... More

We booked a Glacier Discovery tour in Skagway as part of our Island Princess cruise. Although booked with Princess, the actual flights are flown by Temsco Helicopters of Skagway [only helicopter outfit in Skagway]. Our tour involved a short 20-25 minute helicopter ride out to the group’s landing area on the Meade Glacier. The pilots provided an informative narrative in... More

Wanted to do the dog sledding but not the helicopter so was pleasantly surprised when actually enjoyed the ride. The only disappointing factor was the group of dogs that pulled the sled. Dogs were not the huskies you normally think of when picturing dog sleds. The sled behind us did have those dogs. Walking/riding on the glacier was an awesome... More

The highlight of our Alaska visit!! Everything was perfect. The staff, the weather, the views, the ride, the guided walk tour on the Glacier. As any amazing activity, doesnt seem long enough. I swear I could have passed the day riding that chopper and looking around, chatting with the pilot and then walk on the Glacier. Dont let anything keep... More

Don't pass on this excursion because of the cost! Once in a lifetime experience! Efficient staff. The helicopter ride to the glacier was awe inspiring. Once there, riding the dog sled and handling the puppies was icing on the cake. Don't miss it!

We flew with Temsco helicopters from the town of Skagway to the nearby glacier . They are very organized and efficient They even had a scale and weighed each person to make sure that the weight was distributed evenly! The visits to the glacier were timed so that we did not have to wait very long for the helicopters .... More

The helicopter pilots were friendly and the whole thing felt very safe. We spent about a half hour on the glacier. The views to/from the glacier were breathtaking. We were fortunate to do this tour in clear weather, and we could see mountains for miles in every direction!

We did helicopter tour for dog sledding on Denver glacier and the pilot gave us a review of the glaciers as we were flying. I have not seen such breath taking view of glaciers and rivers from helicopter before, tempsco gives you safety vest and safety boots (to wear on glaciers) and the helicopter ride was simply amazing. The dog... More

We did a helicopter tour in combination with dog sledding. It was a perfect day and the views were incredible. Not sure I've ever seen anything that breathtaking. We landed on a glacier and got to ride a dogsled. Riley was our musher and he was very informative. The dogs appeared to love their job and love their owner. We... More
