The scenic helicopter tour over glaciers and in-between mountain peaks is only the beginning of this legendary Alaskan tour. While taking in magnificent views of the glaciers below, you will arrive at the dogsledding camp, where you will enjoy a kennel tour, and the ultimate highlight of this tour, the dogsled ride! Hang on tight. You’ll be surprised how powerful our huskies are!
