The Anchorage Helicopter and Glacier Dogsled Tour is the classic Alaskan adventure! Reserve your spot on this popular Anchorage sled dog experience that is sure to be enjoyed by the entire family. The excitement begins when you take off in the helicopter and are immediately surrounded by incredible views. Keep an eye out for a variety of wildlife as you fly over the Chugach Range, Knik Glacier, Lake George and more breathtaking sights. After the 15-minute flight you’ll arrive at the summer home for these Alaskan sled dogs and mushers – high up on the snow-covered Knik Glacier! You can choose to mush the dog team or just sit back in the sled and enjoy the ride of a lifetime. And, of course, you’ll have time to interact with these canine athletes, professional mushers, and puppies! Finally, enjoy another stunning flight over more glaciers on your way back to the lodge.
Dog mushing is an iconic Alaskan sport and a bucket-list experience for many! Combined with breathtaking views, this might very well be in the running for your ‘best day in Alaska’! One big advantage of this Anchorage sled dog excursion is that the area sees more sunshine and less rain than Southeast Alaska. This means the tour is canceled due to weather much less often when compared to Juneau & Skagway’s helicopter and glacier dogsled tours. This small-group tour is sure to become a day you’ll remember for a lifetime!
Guests can drive themselves to the Knik River Lodge base or purchase a shuttle from Anchorage (see FAQs for details).
Consider upgrading your Anchorage Helicopter and Glacier Dogsled Tour by adding an extra lower glacier landing! And, for the ultimate Alaskan itinerary, pair this tour with Skagway’s White Pass Summit Excursion and Juneau’s Private Whale Watching.
