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 snowfield 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 dog sled 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 the dog sled experience, take a helicopter ride over the lower glaciers where you can see the blue melt pools and the crevasses on your way back to the lodge.

The staff notified in a timely manner that the dog sledding part was not going to be possible due to bad weather and it is excellent thinking of the client's safety, however the passage by helicopter and to the glacier was possible and the attention and explanation of safety and the Shine pilot were excellent. The kindness of the pilot was very nice and his explanations on the flight and on the glacier were extraordinary. They provided us with a device for special footwear to walk on the glacier. The tour on the glacier was excellent, I 100% recommend this tour!
