Alaskan Dog Sledding Experience

You will be whisked away to a high altitude dogsled camp on this Juneau cruise tour where you will experience a highly interactive hands-on personal adventure in the life of an Alaskan Dog Musher!

Lifting off from the helipad, your helicopter flight will take you over the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as you make your way to the dog camp.

Upon arrival, you will tour the dog camp in Juneau and see the behind the scene areas that make it all happen. Visit the kennel, the cookhouse, living quarters, and even the veterinary clinic. This is not a stand back and watch tour. During this interactive Juneau excursion tour you will help prepare your dog team for the fun day of mushing that lays ahead. After preparing a champion's snack for your new canine companions, watch them relish in enjoyment as you brush their furry coats.

Each day also begins with a wellness check where you can assist in a caring inspection of their paws and a dose of sunscreen on their noses to protect them from sunlight reflection off the snow. Once your furry friends are fed and cleared for the trail, you will assist your musher with harnessing and booting your dog team for the open trail. Learn the musher's commands of Gee, Haw, and Hike, and head out across the snow capped glacier!

You will travel by dogsled on an extended 5+ mile trail. The trail time on the glacier is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. The total flight time of the Juneau tour is approximately 30 to 35 minutes. The transfer time from the pier to the heliport is approximately 20 minutes each way.

Bad weather cancellation
September 04, 2015
Rain made it impossible to have this excursion, one we had been looking forward to most of all. I know the organizers can't control weather--and I'm glad they made the safe decision--but they didn't call us until the actual hour of the excursion when we were already waiting to be picked up.

Experience of a Lifetime
July 23, 2015
A wonderful and unique experience, the 5 hours from the helicopter ride to the camp and all the way through from the dog sled ride to departure was brilliant. The four of us cannot recommend the day highly enough.
