Experience the thrill of a lifetime and the iconic Alaskan sport of mushing on this Mendenhall Glacier Helicopter & Dogsled excursion! Enjoy aeriel views of Juneau's Icefield as your expert pilot narrates on your flight to the top of the famous Mendenhall Glacier. The snowpack on top of the glacier is your playground and the excited Alaskan Huskies can't wait to pull you across it! You'll be surrounded by breathtaking views as you glide across Mendenhall Glacier with your furry companions. After, hang out at the dog camp to chat with the professional dog musher and cuddle with the adorable puppies!

This adventure includes roundtrip transportation from downtown Juneau near the cruise ship docks. You'll arrive to the helicopter base for a safety briefing and be fitted in glacier boots. Your exhilarating helicopter flights are approximately 15-minutes each way, and the time spent on Mendenhall Glacier is about 1-hour. Don't forget your camera to capture all of the spectacular views, but you'll have the opportunity to purchase photos from the professional photographer to get frame-worthy shots of your once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if the weather is too bad to fly?
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.
What if I need extra help on the tour?
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.
Will I get to stand and mush the dog team?
You do have the option and opportunity to stand in the musher’s position while on the dogsled tour. For safety reasons, the actual dogsled musher will be able to assume control of the dogsled at all times, but will give you instructions on how to safely control the sled for the duration of your trip.
How many people per dogsled?
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.
How many passengers per helicopter?
Each helicopter can seat up to 6 passengers, provided the weight and balance calculations work out in each aircraft.
