Dog Sledding & Helicopter Ride Excursion in Juneau, Alaska

Imagine flying in a helicopter over the Juneau Icefield as Alaska's scenic beauty passes by the windows. Next, you land on a glacier and climb aboard a dog sled, with a team of huskies pulling you across the ancient snowfields nestled among the peaks of the vast Juneau Icefield. This is your Alaskan helicopter dog sledding adventure.

Enjoy an authentic Juneau dog sledding excursion that combines the unrivaled beauty of touring Alaska's vast winter wilderness via helicopter with standing on the runners of a dog sled as you cruise over the ice on a traditional dog-powered vehicle.

During this Juneau shore excursion, your experienced pilot will fly you over the colossal ice formations, deep-blue crevasses, and luminous ice rivers of Alaska while pointing out the once in a lifetime views below. Upon landing at your destination, it's time to take part in Alaska's favorite sport: dog sledding. Glacier-carved peaks open up before you as you approach the dozens of sled dogs, pups, and staff at the dog sled camp.

Upon arriving at the dog camp, the Juneau shore tour's helpful and professional staff will provide you with training and instructions on the finer points of dog sledding, stories about the famous Iditarod race, and a chance to ask questions before the team is hooked up. Then, you're off in the sled to enjoy the incredible atmosphere as the dogs power you through the crisp Alaskan snow.

Before your helicopter takes you back to base and civilization, make sure to get some pictures with the Alaskan sled dogs in their snowy territory.

This Juneau shore trip includes approximately 30 minutes of roundtrip flying time over the frozen glaciers and breathtaking scenery of Alaska, about 30 minutes with the mushers at the dog camp located on the Juneau Icefield, and approximately 30 minutes of sled time to give everyone a chance to ride the sled.

This Juneau helicopter tour is an ideal combination of highflying exploration and authentic Alaskan dog sledding. It's the experience of a lifetime for animal lovers in a picturesque winter wonderland. Book your Juneau shore excursion tour today because space is limited.

Please Note: Due to current snow conditions, the dog camp at the glacier has closed. This tour is no longer available for the remainder of the 2018 season.

We did many amazing excursions on our Alaska adventure, however this was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip! I took my college age kids, who are still talking about it. (This is for all ages as we had a 5 year old in our party as well) The combined helicopter ride, glacier, dog sled experience and most of all interacting for a significant period of time with the sled dogs and puppies was a once in a lifetime experience. (The dogs just want to be loved!) The staff was friendly and informative. I cannot recommend this strong enough! . DO NOT MISS THIS!! Worth every penny!

What a great experience. Loved the helicopter ride, with fantastic views. The dogs were affectionate and fun. The ride itself was exhilarating. Could have been a little longer. Loved visiting the camp where the dogs and mushers stay.
