Overview
Pair a helicopter flight over the glaciers of Juneau Icefield with a dogsled ride, and you have the perfect Alaska experience. After flying over breathtaking scenery, land at a remote glacier camp for a ride of a lifetime: you’re pulled by Alaskan huskies across fields blanketed with snow, surrounded by towering mountains. Listen to the race stories of struggle and victory from Iditarod mushers, and get in the spirit by dressing up in original Iditarod dogsled gear for memorable photos. Round-trip transport from Juneau included.
What to Expect
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.

It is not ice. It is 100 foot snow pack that is actually like walking in deep sand. They move the camp periodically so as not to disturb the natural environment. They fly out all the dog poop for example. We went in June... More
