Juneau Dog Sledding Excursion Reviews

Dog sledding is a quintessential Alaskan experience- allow a team of strong huskies to pull you through Juneau's trails and countryside.
Shaynee was fabulous.
Shaynee was fabulous. She was the musher and taught us so much! She was so sweet and has even completed the Iditerod! We loved this experience. This is a MUST DO. Or shall I say a "Mush Do" hahah!

Ralph our driver, was very interesting and even told jokes. We drove 20 minutes into the rain forest to the dog sleds. The dogs were so excited to give us a ride and it was fun. We got to pet the dogs and puppies, learn about them and the Iditerod, walk on a suspension bridge, have hot chocolate. It was really fun. Our driver asked us if we would have time to go 10 min out of our way to view the Mendenhall Glacier. We loved that and got to get out and take pictures. Read Less

Amazing!!! The bus took us to the Iditarod summer dog camp and it was fantastic. We were able to interact with the dogs and then the dogs were hooked up to a sled and we went on a one mile journey which was fantastic. We then came back to camp and were given a tour of the facility as well as a history and ended with time with the puppies. Worth every penny!! Read Less

They cancelled the excursion due to weather. It would have been nice to be notified earlier, or even given the heads up that we might be cancelled as the last minute cancellation prevented us from making other plans.

The helicopter glacier dog sled tour was cancelled due to the rainy low cloud weather (it was also Sunday) so I decided to choose the sled dog training excursion just to have the experience. We drove in a small bus to a beautiful forested area, split into small groups, then rode in carts with seats on wheels that were each pulled by their own team of dogs. We rode along paved paths, stopping occasionally for a short break for the dogs. It was a nice experience, but not at all what I had hoped for when booking the glacier dog sled ride. Afterwards we could interact with the dogs and check out the newest puppies. We were driven back to town, and I walked around town for a while. Read Less

It was a fun experience, even if a bit overpriced. The puppies brought a huge smile to my husband's face! It was therapeutic for him after being deployed and being in war-torn areas. The "sled" ride was also a blast and it was cool to see the dogs loving their work! We also took an independent trip via taxi to Mendenhall Glacier and did a short hike to the waterfall. That was beautiful!! Read Less

Dog sledding on mendenhill glacier. Expensive, but worth every penny, you start with a helicopter ride over the mountains, with amazing views then land on the glacier where the staff tell you about the dogs and how to mush. After this you can either mush yourself or just relax as the dogs glide over the glacier. After the sledding you get to hold some puppies before you get back on your helicopter for the trip back to your pick up on a bus back to Juneau. This is an amazing excursion, and something you will never forget Read Less

The location for the dog sledding adventure was gorgeous. Tucked away, up in the mountains, with a river running through the property. They have a swing bridge built over the river, connecting the land with a tree house. This adventure is very well run and efficient. The people are friendly and knowledgeable. The time spent holding the puppies at the end, was the best part of the adventure. They provided free hot beverages and hot a camp fire to warm up around. Very nice touches. Read Less
