Explore the spectacular beauty of the Mendenhall Glacier in a unique new way during this memorable helicopter and dog-sledding adventure.

Depart the helicopter base for a flightseeing tour helicopter tour over the glaciers of Southeast Alaska. You will take in spectacular views and photo opportunities as you fly over the lush rainforest, deep blue crevasses and glacier-carved peaks en route to a dogsled camp on the Mendenhall Glacier.

Upon arrival at the dogsled camp, you will meet the professional mushers and Alaskan sled dogs, then have an opportunity to drive the team or relax in the sled as you take in your awe-inspiring surroundings. You will also have time to talk with the mushers about the famous, 1,000-mile Iditarod race and take pictures with the dogs before reboarding your helicopter for the ride back to the helicopter base.

Please note: Guests are advised to wear warm clothing and sunglasses. Glacier-walking boots will be provided. The duration of the trip includes approximately 30 minutes of helicopter time and 1 hour at the dogsled camp, with 20-25 minutes of dogsledding. Times and routes may vary due to weather and glacier conditions. Due to increased security, carry-on bags are not permitted on the helicopter. A secure place at the office will be provided to store personal items. A window seat is not guaranteed. This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition. Guests with back and/or neck problems, guests with asthma, heart or respiratory conditions, limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair will not be permitted on this tour.

*Due to weight and balance limitations, passenger safety and comfort, passengers weighing 250 pounds or more will be charged an additional $150 to reserve extra space onboard the helicopter.
