Full description
Soar over Alaska on a spectacular helicopter ride above glaciers and icebergs. Search the skyline for moose, black bears, Dall sheep and mountain goats. Land on a glacier snow field and enjoy a whole hour with Alaskan sled dogs and their mushers who live here all summer long.

Take the dog team for an exhilarating dogsled ride through snow, surrounded by amazing scenery. Overboots so your shoes stay dry, extra jackets and warm gear can be provided. Stand on the runners and mush your own dog team, or sit on the sled and let the mushers run the team. The length of this tour makes it perfect for any traveler. After the dogsled tour, meet the canine athletes that pulled your sled, listen to stories about running sled dog races of over a 1,000 miles long, meet the puppies and take pictures with your favorite dogs.

After your dogsled experience, the helicopter will fly over the lower glaciers where you can see the blue melt pools and the crevasses on your way back to the lodge.
