Add to Itinerary

Glacier-carved mountains unfold in front of your eyes as you embark on your helicopter flight to the camp. The flight is about 15 to 20 minutes each way, which depends on winds and weather. You will see that each glacier has its own personality.

Once you land on the glacier you will get to meet your team of huskies, along with about 80 Alaskan dogs that live at the camp. You will have some time to chat with the mushers and hear unique personal accounts of the Iditarod backcountry experiences. They will give you some instructions on stopping and using the brakes, if you want to drive the team (don't worry - they will be by your side).

You will set out on a 2 to 2 1/2 mile loop and you will be able to stop for photos as well as to change places, if you wish, with your companion. Your total time on the glacier is one hour that you will never forget!

  • This Tour Includes:
  • Round trip transportation from the cruise ship pier
  • This trip begins with a short helicopter flight to the glacier
  • 2 to 2 1/2 mile loop with your team of huskies
