If you’re like many who cruise to Juneau, a dog sledding Alaska excursion is on your bucket list. The Glacier Dog Sled Adventure offers a truly authentic experience atop the gorgeous Norris Glacier! Learn about the fascinating history and lifestyle of Alaskan dogsledding from professional Iditarod and Yukon Quest dog mushers. This exclusive tour begins with an exhilarating helicopter ride over Juneau’s Icefield before landing at ‘Dog World’. You’ll meet your guide as well as your team of excited Alaskan Huskies who are eagerly waiting to run across the snow-capped glacier. Then, you’ll board the sled and at the musher’s signal, the dogs are off! The thrill and excitement of a dogsled ride in this incredible landscape is an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime. But, be sure to book your seats early on the Glacier Dog Sled Adventure, as dog sledding Alaska excursions are always in high demand!

Your Juneau dogsled adventure begins with a convenient pickup next to the cruise ship docks.  Then, it’s just a short drive through town to the helicopter base on Douglas Island for gear fitting and a brief safety orientation. Excitement brews as you head to your helicopter to begin your epic flightseeing journey! Enjoy jaw-dropping views of the Tongass National Forest and Juneau’s Icefield, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife and calving glaciers. Upon arrival at the dog camp, your guide and professional musher teaches you the commands and basics of sled handling. Observe how these excitable Alaskan Huskies respond with a wagging tail and a true desire to run the trail! During your two-mile Glacier Dog Sled Adventure, a photographer captures frame-worthy photos that you’ll be able to view and purchase at the end of tour. After your full-hour of fun on the glacier, enjoy another breathtaking flight back to the helicopter base.


This excursion will leave you with unforgettable and fond memories of your time in Juneau, as well as a checkmark next to an epic Alaskan adventure on your bucket list.

    What should I wear?

    Answer: Dress warmly and in layers as the temperature on the glacier is often colder than you are used to. We provide glacier overboots which fit best over sneakers. Don’t forget your sunglasses, scarf, hat, and gloves, and remember to bring your camera with space for lots of pictures!

    Is the dogsled tour on an actual glacier?

    Answer: Yes, the dogsled operator is flown up via helicopter early in the season and sets up camp on the Norris Glacier in advance of the summer tours.

    Will there be snow at the dog camp?

    Answer: Yes. Our dog sleds are similar to any you might see in professional competition and require a certain amount of snow in order to operate.

    How many passengers per helicopter?

    Answer: Each helicopter can seat up to 6 passengers, provided the weight and balance calculations work out in each aircraft.

    What if my tour group is larger than 6 people?

    Answer: There are several helicopters available at the base and can make accommodations for larger groups with advance notice. If your group exceeds 6 passengers and requires the use of multiple aircraft, we instruct the pilots to coordinate landing locations on the glacier so that you can have your landing time together.

    How many people per dogsled?

    Answer: Each team of 10 – 12 Alaskan huskies is hooked up to a double sled arrangement, which allows for up to 5 passengers per dogsled team. We generally keep bookings at 12 passengers each hour, so the usual load out for each team is 4 passengers, but we can make just about any grouping work.

    Will we see wildlife on the tour?

    Answer: There is a good chance wildlife will be seen during your tour, either in flight or while on the glacier. However, this is not a wildlife viewing tour and we cannot guarantee you will see wildlife.

    What if I need extra help on the tour?

    Answer: Your pilot will be with you the entire tour, so they’ll be happy to lend a helping hand whenever necessary. If you require extra assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us ahead of your tour and discuss your particular needs.

    Is the helicopter flight safe?

    Answer: These turbine A-Star helicopters are the standard in the air tour industry and are well suited for this type of flying. Our pilots are experienced, well trained and dedicated professionals whose top priority is the safety and comfort of our passengers.Passengers regularly comment on how much they enjoyed the smooth, professional flight.

    What happens if the weather is too bad to fly?

    Answer: If the weather is just not cooperating and the pilots determine that it’s too bad to fly, we’ll do our best to reschedule you to a later time of day that works for you. If you choose not to reschedule or we can’t find a time that works for you, we will refund you.
