Helicopter/Dog Sledding

Pristine beauty, majestic mountains and ancient glaciers are seemingly within arm's reach as you near your glacier destination!
One hundred Alaskan Huskies wait to share this essential part of Alaskan culture mushing! Experienced guides will talk to you about racing backcountry experiences and answer your questions as the team is hooked up and then - you're off!

Imagine standing on the runners of a dog sled with a team of huskies loping across the ancient snowfield nestled among the peaks of the Juneau Ice Field. The lure of the trail and the thrill of driving a dog team create the "Ultimate Experience of a Lifetime!" A tour truly for EVERYONE! Passengers ride seated on the sleds with the option for one passenger at a time to stand on the runners of the sled to get an idea of how it feels to actually drive. The professional musher is always in control of the dogs.
