Tour Overview

After a short transfer to the heliport you'll have a safety briefing and get outfitted with boots and vests for your time on the glacier.

Once on board the helicopter, you'll soar over the wilds of this gorgeous region - over deep crevasses and towering glacier spires! Marvel at details in the landscape that can only be seen from above, as you fly close enough to almost reach out and touch them.

After a thrilling 30-minute flight (roundtrip) over spectacular glaciers, we'll land at a dog camp on Denver Glacier where you'll meet the mushers and their dedicated canine companions on this unique Alaskan experience. These experienced guides will introduce you to "mushing," the art of dog sledding. Drive the team or relax in the sled while observing the breathtaking environment around you. We'll spend approximately one hour at this glacier camp that is home to nearly 300 Alaskan Huskies and puppies before re-boarding the helicopter for the return flight back.

This excursion was chosen last season by Princess passengers for overall tour quality and outstanding customer service and awarded Tour Guide of the Season in Skagway.
