About this Skagway tour
Experience running with the big dogs as you take on Alaska’s stunning glaciers from great heights and on land. This tour combines the thrill of a helicopter ride above untouched, hidden glacier valleys and dog sledding. Classified as one of Alaska’s favorite sports, dog sledding provides a one-on-one adventure with friendly snow dogs and expert mushers, or sled drivers.
Start your day off in the air and admire stunning waterfalls, pristine glaciers, and snow-covered mountain tops. After your helicopter adventure, you’ll land at the largest sub-arctic dog camp operation in the world where you’ll be welcomed by wiggling tails and cold noses. Experienced guides will introduce you to the world of mushing and the sport of dog sledding before your snow experience begins.
As you get closer to the start of the sledding tour, you’ll watch a brief safety video and be supplied with glacier boots and safety vests necessary for this experience. Then, it’s time to drive the team through the snow or relax on the sled while observing the breathtaking winter-wonderland that surrounds you. Feel the power of these incredible snow dogs as they pull you through the Denver Icefield. This unique Alaskan experience is sure to be one for the books!
