Beginning with an epic helicopter tour over the Juneau Icefield, you'll be in awe of the stunning bird's-eye view of up to four glaciers along with the Tongass National Forest. The helicopter will touch down on the remote Norris Glacier, where your professional musher and guide welcomes you to 'Dog World'. You'll instantly see the excitement that these well-cared-for Alaskan Huskies have knowing that they'll soon be running down the trail! Your guide, who has years of experience dog sledding in Alaska, shows you the basic commands and how these adorable dogs respond with love and wagging tail. Then, it's time for your exhilarating sled dog ride across this incredibly scenic glacier! Enjoy a full-hour on the glacier before returning to the helicopter for another gorgeous flight back to town.
As with our other Juneau excursions, the Glacier Dog Sled Adventure provides pick up next to the cruise ship docks. Following a short drive to the helicopter base on Douglas Island, you'll be fitted with glacier overboots while the staff provides a safety briefing. When you return to the helicopter base after the tour, you'll have the opportunity to view and purchase photos taken during your dogsled ride and visit the gift shop before heading back to the cruise ship dock. Dogsledding tours in Juneau are always in high demand, so if the Glacier Dog Sled Adventure is on your bucket list, make sure to reserve your seats early!
