Juneau Dog Sledding & Helicopter Tour

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 helicopter 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.

Your experienced pilot will fly you over the colossal ice fields and 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 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.

Experience 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 dog sledding & helicopter tour is an ideal combination of high-flying 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.

This was an amazing excursion!! More than I bargained for!! The helicopter pilot was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The team at the glacier along with the musher were as well knowledgeable in their areas and helpful to all the patrons and animals. The ground crews at the departure areas and at the helicopter area were very helpful. Riding on the sled behind the dogs and being allowed to stand and mush was a definite one for the bucket list!! Truly amazing. Also standing on a glacier and being educated about the glaciers and the sled dogs was awesome. They did a fantastic job!!

Highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience. Everyone was professional and friendly. The ride up and back was incredible. We had so much fun taking turns on the back of the sled and even got to interact with our dogs and hold puppies!
