What You Can Expect
Fly over the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield, with your pilot-guide explaining the surrounding geology and natural history. Head over to Herbert Glacier, where your pilot lands the helicopter near a dogsledding camp. As you step foot onto the quiet and massive snowfield, you may sense you’re alone in the world — that is, until you hear Alaskan huskies barking as they make their way over to you.
You can ride the dogsled runners, or remain comfortably in your seat as the dog team glides you along vast fields blanketed with snow. After your ride, return to camp and listen to anecdotes from longtime mushers about the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, also known as the Last Great Race.
Then, it’s time to say farewell to the mushers and huskies. Back aboard your helicopter, delight in aerial views of the icefield as you fly back to Juneau. Upon landing, take a few minutes to snap more pics and warm up before your van transports you back to the port terminal.
Worth every penny! Best tour we did our entire trip!
This excursion was our favorite! And everyone from the flight crew to the dog mushers were wonderful! Very personable and we had a great experience! It was everything we imagined and more! Would HIGHLY recommend this tour company to anyone traveling to Juneau!
This tour was amazing!
Coastal Choppers did an excellent job in taking care of their guest, from boots to hot chocolate! Our time dog sledding was a terrific experience, the host are knowledgeable, care about the environment and cautious for the safety of their guest. We were there in June and able to sled on snow where as other tours offer sled rides you will be riding in a wagon on dirt. With several cruise ships in port, we were not over run by crowds on the glacier either!
It was fantastic thank you
Worth every hard earned penny! Wow!
Wonderful mix of helicopter sight seeing and dog sledding. The tour company running the excursion were very friendly and was happy to answer any questions.
This tour was really awesome! Incredible views from the helicopter and the dogs and trainers at the camp were very friendly. Would definitely recommend doing this tour if you can. Just wished it was longer!
