If this is not on your bucket list, it needs to be. Unbelievable experience. The 12 dogs that did the work and the guide that provided us the great details of the Herbert Glacier and the dogs background was fantastic. They even had puppies that were born on the glacier for us to experience. Bring your camera, goPro, and your smile as you wont leave disappointed and you can tell people that this is one experience everyone needs to do when in Alaska. The helicopter ride was full of anticipation and excitement as we knew the flight plan was over the glacier, both ways! This too was a bucket list item, fly over a glacier in a helicopter. On the way to the helipad, had two Bald Eagles fly in front off and below the chopper, one had a fish with the other in chase. This added to the Alaska experience.
If you don't do anything else on your Alaskan tour this is a must. The memories from this tour will be with us forever. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather so our very experienced helicopter pilot from Coastal Helicopters could fly us over the mountains to the snow field for dog sledding. The dog sledding was amazing as we were taken around a 2 mile circuit with stops for the dogs to rest. After that we were flown onto the Mendenhall Glacier for a walk. I cannot find a word good enough to describe this. If there were 10 stars for tours, this tour would get 10 from us. Thanks for the memories and giving us the most unbelievable day of our lives.
We were very pleased with the trip. It is really fantastic. Excellent weather helped us to enjoy the trip. Coastal helicopters staff were very pleasant. Picked us as per the schedule and dropped us. Highly recommend the trip.
Best tour I have been on! Amazing experience with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Wouldn and #39;t hesitate to go again!
The trip was great, friendly hosts and the dogs were great to boot! The weather is always hit or miss in AK but even on a cloudy day it was the highlight of our Alaskan cruise. Highly recommend!
They are awesome! Although the dog sled tour was cancelled due to weather, the substitute trip to Herbert Glacier was magnificent! John was an awesome pilot and very informative. This tour is worth every penny and an incredible experience. All the staff are extremely nice. Thank You to the local helicopter company for the tour and my photo's! :
One of the best experiences in my life. From the helicopter to the glacier, everyone was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about places we were viewing and about the dogs and traditions. I totally recommend this tour.

Oh my gosh. What a thrilling experience. Very professional. From the pick up at your cruise boat. The van was clean and well maintained. The pre-flight instructions and safety video was informitave. They provided all you warm gear boots. Not some cheap equipment. The helicopter pilot was very professional made flying look so easy. Pointing out points of interest. Once we arrived at the dogsled camp the adventure just begins!!!!! We were a group of 3. And we all had a turn to lead mush. So much fun.... A must do....
The tour was ok. The helicopter ride was pretty short and not worth the money, partly because of the bad weather (it was windy and raining all the time), but also because of too many people being accommodated that day. I would do it again, but the cost is high and it needs to be nice weather.
