This genuinely Alaskan adventure offers the rare opportunity to mush your dog sled team across a snow-covered glacier.
Helicopter to an exclusive dog sled camp located on the picturesque middle branch of the Norris Glacier. On your way there, you will be amazed by a beautiful heli-flightseeing trip over the vast Juneau Icefield. Watch for the largest glacier on the Icefield -- the advancing Taku Glacier. View spectacular icefalls, rock formations, and untamed wilderness. Accessible only by air, this region is filled with lush forests, glassy alpine lakes, jagged mountain peaks, and awe-inspiring glaciers.
From here on, it all goes to the dogs. You'll land at the dog-sledding base on the glacier and learn the tricks of the trade from seasoned veterans of the legendary Iditarod Race. Master the all-important commands of Hike! Gee! and Haw! Then, armed with your new vocabulary, experience the thrill of zipping across a pristine glacier pulled by a team of friendly huskies. There may be no better way to enjoy the fresh mountain air and scenic vistas.
Enjoy approximately 30 to 35 minutes of helicopter time and one hour at the dog base.
