After transferring 30 minutes from your Juneau cruise pier downtown to the Mendenhall Valley heliport, you will weigh/check in with the staff before boarding your Juneau flightseeing shore excursion helicopter. The pilot will place you in the helicopter based on the total weight of the guests. On average, the helicopter can hold up to six guests. Then it is time to take off. Your experienced helicopter excursion 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 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 flightseeing excursion pilot will fly over the spectacular rock formations and icefalls of the Juneau Icefield as you head towards your dogsled camp on the glacier.

Upon arriving at the helicopter and dog sled excursion camp, the professional staff will provide training and instructions on everything you need to know about dog sledding in Juneau Alaska. There will also be stories about the famous Iditarod race, and time to ask questions before it's time to mush. You will break into dog sledding excursion teams of two (one sitting, one standing) as you take your turn feeling the thrill of speeding over the ice underdog 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 as you take turns. The actual time on the sled is approximately 5-6 minutes.

Before your sightseeing excursion helicopter takes you back to base and civilization, you will have some free time so make sure to get some pictures with the Alaskan sled dogs in their snowy territory.

Upon arrival at the helipad near the airport, your transportation will be waiting to take you back downtown to your Juneau cruise ship terminal, approximately 30 minutes away.

Beautiful experience
     5/5 Visited in September 2017

It's a bit pricey but not your everyday experience so well worth it. How often do you get to be on a helicopter admiring the incredible Juneau landscape? The helicopter ride was exciting plus the view is like no other. It is completely safe and you ride it in on the way to the dog camp and back. The helicpter ride was my favorite until we made it to the sled camp. Oh my gosh it was beautiful! I am a HUGE dog lover so being sorrounded by the beautiful huskies and puppies that were being trained. We got to ride the sleds downhill and was so much fun! The trainers are professionals and the dogs love and respect them. We got some awesome pictures with all the dogs and the snow and it was just such a beautiful experience.

Day full of excitement
     5/5 Visited in August 2017

This was the most exciting day ever during our vacations in Alaska. The helicopter ride, the dog sleding. Loved the friendly snow dogs and love how they are loved and taken care of. It was our first time doing anything like this so it was well worth it. It was such an amazing experience visiting Juneau

Family and I enjoyed it
     5/5 Visited in July 2017

We wanted to do something completely different on our tour vacations and this was it. My family loved it and they were really surprised when we I told them we were going to ride in a helicopter and do some sledding with snow dogs. It was a once in a life time experience. The helicopter ride had my whole familly impressed. We loved how secluded the camp was and the sight is amazing. When we got to the camp our kids cried in excitiment and wanted to know everything about the sport. When they were able to ride the sledds it was a fascinating view and they just wished the ride longer but they could have done it for hours! They enjoyed it very much and talk about it up to this day

Took this excursion last year and absolutely loved it. It's a little pricey but the helicopter ride and the dogs are well worth it. Coming back this May and bringing my son. Can't wait to do this again.
