Regardless of how old or young you are, this unique dog sledding adventure is certain to be one of the most memorable and beloved thrills of your entire Alaskan holiday!

This epic 90-minute adventure combines the best that Alaska has to offer — glaciers, flightseeing, and dog sledding on snow.

All the gear that you need to enjoy this fun adventure in comfort and style will be provided for you, so you can just sit back and enjoy the ride!

After gearing up and going over some instructions and safety measures at the office, your helicopter will arrive and whisk you away to your snowy back country wonderland for your dog sled run!

Your flight will take you over beautiful river valleys, and the breathtaking coastline along Resurrection Bay before you head up over the mountains to a back country dog-sled camp on Godwin Glacier. These river valleys along the bay are fantastic places to spot bears and other wildlife!

After you arrive at the dog-sledding camp you will have an opportunity to meet, play and socialize with some of the dogs.

Then it is off to meet your guides and musher team and depart on your 30-minute dog-sledding trip across the glacier snow!

Your guides will pause several times along the way allowing you to capture some incredible photos that will help immortalize this adventure for life!
