ShoreTrips says...

During this once-in-a-lifetime experience, witness the beauty of Alaska from above. Then participate in Alaska's favorite sport - dogsledding.

Lift off in your helicopter from historic Skagway and enjoy the breathtaking view of mountains almost entirely surrounding you. Long strands of waterfalls create a pattern on the mountain fronts.

Soon you are heading out and over the jagged forms as well as the smooth rivulets that have been formed from the ice. It is so unbelievable that you are certain it cannot be transfixed by your camera, but your mind will never forget the scene.

As you set down on the glacier, you will be able to hear the howl of the dogs, anxious to do what they enjoy the most - to get some great exercise. You will meet your hosts and then board a sled and you are off with your musher. You can sit back and enjoy or ask to stand on the back of the sled. Both locations will make you feel as if you are in a dream.

  • This Tour Includes:
  • Approximately 30 minutes of helicopter time
  • Approximately 30 minutes with the mushers at the dog camp
