Excursion Overview

Anchorage Glacier Dog Sledding via Helicopter Tour including roundtrip transportation

Drive your own dog team on real snow in the middle of the summer!

Start this adventure with a spectacular helicopter ride over glaciers and icebergs. We often see moose, black bears, Dall sheep, and mountain goats. Next, land on a snowfield high on the Troublesome glacier and enjoy an hour with Iditarod sled dogs and their mushers. Take the dog team for an exhilarating dogsled tour through snow-encased trails. You can even stand on the runners and mush your own dog team if you like. Includes meet and greet with the dogs.

The length of this tour makes it perfect for the whole family and we often see three-generation having fun together. After your dogsled tour meets the canine athletes that pulled your sled, listen to stories about running sled dog races of over 1,000 miles long, meet the puppies, and of course, take pictures with your favorite dogs.

We provide overboots so your shoes stay dry, and we have some extra jackets and warm gear you can borrow if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

This tour goes to the Troublesome Glacier.

Yes, the dogs love human interaction and the mushers will let you get close and snuggly with their team.

The pilot balances the helicopter based on the weight and number of passengers. We cannot make any promises for specific seat because safety cannot be compromised. If you have a preference ask the pilot and when it is safe the pilot will try to accommodate you.

The average temperature is between 15-20°F cooler than on the ground.

Wildlife is abundant in Alaska and sightings are possible on any tour. Typically we see moose, dall sheep, mountain goats and sometimes bears depending on the time of year. However, this is not a designated wildlife tour and nothing can be guaranteed.

We recommend wearing layers, a weatherproof outer coat, sturdy shoes (we will provide overboots to keep your shoes dry) and sunglasses as it gets blindingly bright on the snow-covered glacier.

From the time we were picked up at the hotel we were impressed. The trip out was informative once we got to Knik resort all the team were extremely friendly. The flight up to Troublesome Glacier was exciting. Meeting the mushers and the dogs was an experience we will never forget. All this was topped of by our ride with the iditarod team . So glad our original trip was cancelled on our cruise. A once in a lifetime experience. Thank you to all involved from the Alaska shore excursions to our driver and everyone in between Thank you.
