Come experience the adrenaline rush of dog sledding in the Arctic with qualified Iditarod Mushers as your guides! Hear unique personal accounts of the Iditarod, back country experiences and have an opportunity to ask questions.
You will be picked up at your cruise ship dock and transported to the heliport where you will start this incredible adventure. The helicopter flight is only one part of this legendary experience that includes flying over the spectacular Juneau Icefield.
When you arrive at the dog camp, you will have a kennel tour and then enjoy an adventurous dogsled ride. When you take off, glaciers are seemingly within arm's reach. Glacier-carved mountains will unfold in front of your eyes as you embark on your flight to the camp.
You will share this experience with 80 Alaskan huskies, and you will ride by dog sled with a team of huskies loping across the ancient snowfields nestled among the peaks of the vast Juneau Icefield. You will have excellent photo opportunities, and can also dress up in original Iditarod Trail gear!
