Tour

DETAILS

You begin at a comfortable heli-base where you will be outfitted in glacier boots and given a safety briefing by friendly tour attendants. From here you will load up into a state of the art helicopter and be whisked away to begin your dog sledding adventure. Highly trained pilots will narrate the scenic helicopter ride on your way to the main attraction, the mighty Glacier. During your flight you will have a bird’s eye view of the lush Tongass Rainforest, soaring mountain peaks, and the spectacular Mendenhall Glacier.

As you touch down at an authentic dog mushing camp, you will be greeted by professional dog mushers and their energetic companions, the Alaskan Huskies! Experience the unique thrill as these athletes pull you through the snow that blankets the top of the glacier. Take turns directing the dogs with your musher and relaxing in the sled.

After your exhilarating sledding experience, you will have time to cuddle with puppies and chat with your dog musher before boarding your helicopter to return to the heli-base. Experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and check off that item on your bucket list.

After your dog mushing, Before touching down again, you will have a birds-eye view of the awe-inspiring blue glacier ice, deep crevasses, spectacular ice falls and the jagged peaks of the Mendenhall Towers.

During the 25 minutes you spend on the glacier you will learn how glaciers are formed and what makes them so spectacular. The tour will allow you to explore melt-water pools, feel glacial silt, and capture all of the beauty on your camera. The adventure isn’t over yet; join your pilot in the helicopter for a ride back to our base to take in the Alaskan beauty from the air one last time. Leaving the glacier behind you will take with you memories that will last a life-time.
