Get two great Alaska activities—helicopter flightseeing and dogsledding on a glacier—with this amazing tour. You’ll start with a scenic 35-minute flight aboard a helicopter over the stunning Juneau Icefield. Then you’ll land on a glacier, where you’ll be introduced to your team of huskies who will be pulling you across the ice. Learn how to harness the dogs and prepare them to run, then set off on an unforgettable ride, mushing your team over several miles of Alaskan ice. You’ll even see the tents and kennels where dogs and guides live.
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.
Go behind the scenes with Iditarod mushers and get your own thrilling ride with the dogs at Turning Heads Kennel. Choose a summer dog demonstration and cart ride, or whisk off by helicopter for glacier dog sledding. Winter brings its own variety of tours, which range from an hour long to multi-day expeditions near Willow, Alaska.
May - Mid September
The port city of Seward is a classic stop on any Alaska itinerary, thanks to its proximity to Chugach National Forest and Kenai Fjords National Park.

Dog sledding on a glacier is the ultimate blend of Alaskan adventure, as you also get there by helicopter! Board a TEMSCO flight that whisks you thousands of feet above sea level to the Denver glacier and a dog mushing camp hidden away on a snow field, where Alaskan sled dogs will greet you energetically, ready to take you on the ride of your life.
Winter Tours: November - April. Summer Tours: May - August.
