GLACIER DOG SLEDDING

This Alaskan adventure is hard to top! Take this exciting opportunity to learn about the dedicated dog sled teams of the Alaskan Huskies. Enjoy a spectacular helicopter ride into the majestic Chugach Mountains and onto Punch Bowl Glacier, 3200 feet above sea level. It is a giant snowfield consisting of 700ft of snow on top of 500ft of ice. Learn how the dogs are bred. Relax and enjoy the view as you ride on the sled around the glacier enjoying the scenic peaks and valleys surrounding you, see how the dogs are trained to pull the sled, and how they have this everlasting endurance, how they possess an inherent drive to run, and if you pull on the brakes it’s still hard to hold them back.

This is a trip you will NEVER forget, and most visitors say it was the highlight of their Alaskan vacation!! 

Dog Sledding with Alaskan Huskies is such a large part of Alaskan life and history, the Iditarod Trail started out as a mail and supply route from the towns of Seward and Knik to the interior, and part of the Iditarod trail was used as a life saving highway for epidemic stricken Nome, where sled dogs were used to deliver Serum in 1925 to cure Diphtheria. It is now the famous “Last Great Race on Earth” where Dogs, Sleds and their Mushers leave from Anchorage to Nome, each with a team of 12-16 Dogs on a journey of 1150 in 10-17 days. For further information please see the following website: http://www.iditarod.com
