Ratchet up the adventure factor and try your hand at dogsledding. Alpine Air Alaska flies to a dog camp run by the oldest established dog-sled tour business in Alaska. You’ll travel by helicopter from Girdwood’s green forests up over a small saddle to land on a glacier and be introduced to the dog team. You'll get to stand on the sled runners and "drive" the dogs yourself, or sit in the sled and survey the hanging glaciers that surround you.
Winter Tours: November - April. Summer Tours: May - August.
Everybody loves sled dogs, and Salmon Berry Tours offers you the chance to get behind the sled year-round. In winter, you'll head to the kennel of Iditarod Champion Dallas Seavey, where you'll see a gear demonstration, meet the dogs, and ride on the sled behind them across the snow. In the summer, board a helicopter for an exciting, scenic flight over the Chugach Mountain Range before landing atop a glacier, where you'll be greeted by the excited sound of dogs ready to run.
