The dog sledding tour is an amazing & must-do adventure!! It’s a short and easy drive from Anchorage to Girdwood. The staff were professional and very friendly. They gave great safety instructions, answered all questions, plus provided great ideas for hikes and restaurants in the area for afterwards. They provide extra gear to keep you warm and dry (which they tell you in the confirmation email - it includes a lot of helpful info). The helicopter ride is short but WOW, so cool and the pilots’ landings both on the glacier and on the runway felt like we were landing on cushions - so smooth. And when you arrive on top of the glacier, it’s like entering another world! You get plenty of puppy and doggie time before, during, and after the actual sled ride. We all loved it!! Thank you again Andrew, Marianna, Elizabeth, our pilots, and ground crew (I’m sorry I don’t remember everyone’s names!)!! Definitely going to be the highlight of our Alaska vacation!!

A few tips: 1) They take pictures you may purchase, so bring cash. It was $40 to get all of the personal pictures plus some super cute stock photos of their dogs. 2) The mercantile shop nearby has a bathroom. We stopped there right before our check-in time because all they have is a port-a-potty.

We traveled in two helicopters (two groups of three) to a snowy camp for Alaskan huskies. These dogs love to run and are excited to be chosen for the sled rides. The rides are exciting and playing with the dogs and puppies is very special too. Mariana and Andrew were our guides and explained everything about the dogs, and about living for days at a time on a glacier. We all loved this amazing experience. Highly recommend!!!

This was a highlight of my trip to Alaska. I booked through the Alaska Railroad, which was super easy to do. When I got off the train, I found that all the staff members were very friendly, from the shuttle driver to the people who helped suit me up to the helicopter operators to the dog sled drivers. They called me by my name, which added to a great experience. The dogs were awesome. I got to meet them and interact with some puppies, too. The views were amazing at the glacier. On the dog sled tour, we got to stop for multiple photo ops. Definitely worth the money!

This was by far the highlight of our trip to Alaska. We did an Alaskan cruise and saw beautiful sights with Glaciers, Fiords,Mountains, trainrides, etc. When we did our 90 minute helicopter ride - we saw the most amazing sights from above. Our pilot was great and we even did a landing on a glacier. Spectacular experience. Worth every dollar!!!
