This is a "once in a lifetime" tour. You will be picked up at your cruise ship dock and transported to the heliport where you will start this very special adventure. The helicopter flight is only one part of this legendary experience that includes flying over the Juneau Icefield to the dog camp, a kennel tour and the dogsled ride. When you take off, glaciers are seemingly within arm's reach. Glacier-carved mountains will unfold in front of your eyes as you embark on your flight to the camp.
When you arrive at your destination, you will share this adventure with 80 Alaskan huskies and hear unique personal accounts of the Iditarod, back country experiences and have an opportunity to ask questions. Feel the excitement as the team is hooked up, then you're off! Imagine yourself standing on the runners of a dog sled with a team of huskies loping across the ancient snowfields nestled among the peaks of the vast Juneau Icefield. The lure of the trail and the thrill of driving a dog team creates this ultimate experience!
The actual tour is approximately 1.5 hours from lifting off at the heliport to return. Time on the glacier is approximately 45 minutes which includes an orientation to dog sledding and taking turns on a dog sled ride. Flight time and time on the glacier may vary depending on weather and glacier conditions. Transfer time from the pier to the heliport is approximately 45 minutes each way.
