When your cruise ship docks at the Juneau port, you’ll be picked up from the cruise terminal and you’ll kick off your Alaskan experience with an informative and entertaining van ride from your Juneau hotel to the heliport to begin your amazing helicopter tour. Board a state-of-the-art helicopter and admire aerial views as you soar over the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield. Landing at a secluded camp on Herbert Glacier, you'll be surrounded by mountain peaks and a vast, ancient snowfield, making you feel like you’re the only group of people in the world. You’ll be greeted by a team of Alaskan huskies for your dogsled ride and have the choice to ride the dogsled runners or stay comfortably seated as your dog team pulls you along the endless fields of snow. Back at camp, hear stories about the famous Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race from expert mushers. In fact, the owner of the tour company won the Yukon Quest 1,000 Mile International Sled Dog Race, and finished the Iditarod in 2nd place -- all in the same year! You’ll have opportunities to ask questions, snap photos and even dress up in original Iditarod Trail dogsled gear and finishing bibs. When your time on the glacier is over, hop back in the helicopter and savor the views again as you rise up and over the icefield back to Juneau. Upon landing you’ll have the opportunity for final photos and time to warm up before enjoying a return van trip back to your cruise port. The total tour time is approximately 1.5 hours, from liftoff at the heliport to return to the helicopter base. When you land, you’ll be taken back to the Juneau port to board your ship.
