This is the ultimate Alaskan experience. The minute you get on board one of our helicopters, you can feel the excitement. You will see some of Skagway, Alaska's most remote landscapes and have the opportunity to land on top of a glacier to meet, and ride, with an authentic sled dog team in training for the world famous Iditarod. Experience the life of the dogs and the mushers from America's greatest sled dog race.
In 1898 the Rush was on, and tens of thousands of adventurers and fortune seekers poured into Southeast Alaska en route to the Klondike Goldfields. These prospectors used sled dog teams to haul their gear over the famous Chilkoot Trail with hopes of being the first to arrive in Dawson. Combine the experiences of the past with the present by participating in this turn of the century past time which has evolved into Alaska's favorite sport; dog sledding!
After flying over spectacular glacial sites, you'll land at the dog camp on Denver Glacier, which is located above the historical city of Skagway. From here, you'll feel the vastness of this great land, and view the endless vista of peaks and glaciers as our professional mushers take you on a trip that's worth its weight in gold.
From take off to landing the tour is 1 hour, 30 minutes and includes approximately 30 minutes of flight time and 1 hour at the dog sled camp. Allow 1 additional hour for transportation, safety briefing and boot outfitting. This is one of the most popular tours in all of Alaska. Pre-booking is encouraged, especially during peak summer months.
