Combine your helicopter flightseeing tour with Alaska’s favorite sport, dog sledding. A short drive brings you to the heliport where following a safety video, you’ll be outfitted with boots and ready to start your adventure. Once airborne you’ll soar over stunning glaciers and snow fields before landing at the Dog Camp on Denver Glacier. Here you’ll become acquainted with the world of mushing and dog sledding. You have the option to either stand on the sled and mush or relax in the sled and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. A truly authentic Alaskan adventure, this outing enables you to meet professional mushers and their friendly dogs that have made the Iditarod Dog Race famous.
