Helicopter Dog Sledding Adventure
Skagway Dog Sledding & Helicopter Tour
Enjoy an authentic Alaskan helicopter flightseeing and dog sledding excursion in Skagway that combines the unmatched beauty of touring the expansive winter wilderness by air and gliding on ancient yet pristine snow fields by land. If it’s your first time in Alaska, discover why this tour is an absolute must for travelers!
Glacier Flightseeing Tour
In Alaska, this helicopter tour is only the first step on this journey straight out of a Jack London novel. Your experienced pilot will fly you over the massive ice formations, deep-blue crevasses, and shimmering ice rivers of Alaska while pointing to the once-in-a-lifetime views out each window.
As you arrive at your destination, the allure of Alaska's favorite sport awaits you: dog sledding. The majestic peaks, sculpted by glaciers, unveil themselves as you draw near the Denver Glacier dog sled camp, where a bustling scene of hundreds of sled dogs, adorable pups, and dedicated staff comes into view.
Sightseeing Dog Sled Tour
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 drive the team yourself. Or, just relax on the sled while enjoying the breathtaking surroundings as the huskies power you through the crisp Alaskan snow.
Your Skagway shore excursion continues with some time to talk with the mushers and play with the 200 or so sled dogs and their husky puppies. Before your helicopter takes you back to the base and civilization, make sure to get some pictures with the Alaskan sled dogs on their snowy home turf.
This Skagway dog sledding adventure excursion includes approximately 30 minutes of helicopter 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 test their mushing and dog sledding skills along professional mushers.
