The beauty of your tour begins as you ascend from Girdwood Airport. First you’ll glide over the mountains into glacier country to experience giant glaciers, crystal blue pools, and spot wildlife. Depending on the flightseeing tour you select, it may also include a 15-20 minute glacier landing, and the duration of the flight will vary.
Next, it’s a short flight to Punchbowl Glacier for your dog sledding tour on a giant snowfield. You’ll meet the friendly Alaskan Huskies and learn interesting facts about the dogs and the mushing lifestyle. Then you’re on the sled for an exhilarating 2K-to-3K loop on the snow, surrounded by a gorgeous backdrop of glaciers and mountains. Afterward, hold some of the adorable sled dog puppies!
What To Expect:
Enjoy a complimentary shuttle from one of our pickup locations in Girdwood. If you’re driving, park your vehicle at our hangar at the Girdwood Airport. We ask all Dog Sledding guests to arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled tour time. Before taking flight, you’ll be outfitted for mushing with waterproof layers and over-boots, and take part in a short safety briefing. Then, you’ll be ready for a scenic flight of your choice and a dog sledding tour for one unforgettable adventure.
You’ll have a great view from every seat, so sit back and relax as you enjoy the incredible scenery. Your professional pilot will provide knowledgeable commentary during your journey. After the completion of your flight, our courtesy van will be waiting for a complimentary transfer to your destination in Girdwood.
