Alaska Shore Excursions - Juneau Glacier Dogsled Extended Tour via Helicopter Our group ranged in age from 12-71. Everyone truly enjoyed this excursion. The process was very organized and efficient. The heli pilot and dog mushers were very knowledgeable and friendly. The extra stop on the icefield was well worth it. Our favorite part was walking on the icefield, jumping crevasses, and drinking glacier water! This is an experience that we will never forget. * Plan to wear extra layers, scarf, and gloves!!

We booked the dog sledding ride through Celebrity, and it was super fun. We got a long ride on a cart pulled by dogs - way better than expected! The people were super nice and clearly love their dogs.

OMG!! This was so worth the price! We flew in helicopters up to Mendenhall Glacier and the dog sled camps. The dogs were so excited! Had a really fun talk with Michael Baker who races in the Idatarod. We were on the sled with 3 other people and were each given a chance to "drive" the sled. We got to pet the dogs afterwards and meet 2 new puppies. The ride up and back showed some amazing scenery. Being on top of the snow on the Glacier was an amazing experience. This is a bucket list item and MUST do thing in Juneau! It's not like anything else I had ever done. Highly highly recommend this excursion. Read Less

So much fun for all ages!
So much fun for all ages! A once in a lifetime experience. Learned about the Iditerod, marveled at all of the dogs in their little houses, and snuggled with puppies. The sled ride was awesome even though not on snow.

Our guide met us right at the dock, making it very easy to return to the ship at the conclusion. We're huge animal lovers, so this was something that we HAD to do! Once we got to the camp, we took a dry sled around the trails with the dogs who couldn't be more excited to run and then got to hold 8 week old puppies and even a few 3 week old one's who had just opened their eyes. The tour was very educational and a lot of fun. Read Less

This was really cool. We met genuine sled dogs, some of which had participated in the Iditarod. They pulled us on carts through the most gorgeous forest and then we got to meet each of the 16 dogs. They were beautiful animals and so friendly. Then we learned more about sled dog racing from one of the mushers and finally we got to play with Husky puppies! Super fun excursion for dog lovers.

We did Coastal Helicopter’s Dog Sled Tour with and extra glacier landing. This tour takes 3.5 hours total dock to dock. The ship is in town for nine hours, so no worries. Coastal provided rain jackets, rain pants, and spiked boots, so we were all very comfortable. Once we took off , the tour was 2 hours to/from the airport. The helo ride to the Blue Kennels Dog Camp is only about 15-20 minutes. They are on Herbert glacier were there is ample snow accumulation for sledding. The sled is actually two two-seater sleds connected with a line, allowing five to go at once with a musher guide (sixth person). The musher is on the first sled and stands behind the two sled seats, then the second sled has two sitting and one standing (“driving”). There are two stops during the mush run, allowing those in your party to meet the dogs and switch seats or “drive.” About the dogs, they are the real deal. All of the dogs with our sled had run the Iditarod, and finished in the top 15 (of 72 racers). They love to pull, and are excited at the prospect of doing so when the helo lands, as is evident by their excited yapping. The sled ride was about 45-60 minutes. We talked our musher’s ear off, so we probably got closer to the hour. Then it was back into the helo and off to another part of Herbert glacier to land and walk about. There are rivers of water there; beautiful blue topaz water and ice is everywhere. DO NOT FORGET to bring an empty water bottle or two or even three so you can bring some of this water back with you. It is a great conversation piece to share with those at home: “You are now drinking water that is millennium old!” Needless to say, this was definitely a trip highlight. Read Less
