After transferring 30 minutes from your Juneau cruise ship pier downtown to the Mendenhall Valley heliport, you will weigh / check in with the staff before boarding your helicopter. Based on the total weight of the guests, the flightseeing excursion helicopter can hold up to six guests. Then it is time to take off. Your experienced helicopter pilot will lift off giving you views back towards Juneau and across the Mendenhall Valley.

In no time at all, you are over the enormous ice-field formations, looking down at deep-blue crevasses and glistening ice rivers while turning your head back and forth for the once in a lifetime views on either side.

Your helicopter excursion pilot will fly over the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as you head towards your dog sled camp on the glacier.

Upon arriving at the camp, the professional sightseeing and dog sledding shore excursion staff will provide training and instructions on everything you need to know about dog sledding and mushing. There will also be stories about the famous Iditarod race, and time to ask questions before its time to mush. You will break into teams of two (one sitting, one standing) as you take your turn feeling the thrill of speeding over the ice under dog power. Your time on the glacier consists of approximately 30 minutes with the mushers for your orientation and approximately 30 minutes with the dogs and sled, allowing everyone a chance to ride the sled.

Re-board your helicopter and head for your next destination, which is further down the glacier where it takes on character. Upon reaching your destination, your expert pilot shuts down the helicopter and becomes your knowledgeable glacier sightseeing cruise excursion guide.

They will escort you on an informative, relaxing walk across the glacier, giving you some details on your natural surrounding and deep history of these immaculate ice formations. The Snowshoes provided will give you an authentic Alaskan experience on the river of ice.

After approximately 20 minutes on the face of the glacier, you will climb aboard the helicopter and head back to the heliport taking in this incredible landscape from above.

The helicopter portion lasts approximately 2 hours from the time it lifts off until it returns to the heliport, but will vary depending on which glacier your pilot determines to be the best on the day of your Juneau helicopter and dog sledding cruise excursion, based on weather and glacier conditions. The rest of the excursion duration consists of your transfers to/from the heliport, and pre-flight check in.

My husband took us (me and my 6 year old) on a cruise to Alaska, we were on a board of Disney Wonder since my kid is a huge Mickey fan (so am I)... Juneau was one of our ports of call, while checking on the excursions we were hesitating between this one and the Whale watching, couldn't decide what would be better. What we did know is that the price onboard so very expensive compared to the pricing with this company. We then decided that this one would give us a more Alaskan experience and we were completely right!!! I speak for the three of us when I say this was a once in a lifetime experience! Our day started flying over the icefields, memorable views; then the best part: riding a dog sled, my kid was the most excited in our group!! Then we flew to a glacier where we were given snow shoes so we could walk across the glacier. This excursion is totally worth the price, you won't regret booking it.
