Experience the majesty of wild Alaskan beauty alongside the thrill of Alaska's traditional sport on the Skagway Helicopter & Dogsled! This Skagway dog sled tour is a stunningly beautiful tour that takes you high above the shores of Skagway to the Juneau Icefield, for the once in a lifetime experience of mushing your own Alaskan sled dogs on snow. Your 2-hour experience will give you 30 minutes of helicopter time over the jagged peaks and 1 hour to experience the thrill of mushing and learn all about the mushers, the dogs, and the sport. The Skagway Helicopter & Dogsled is a spectacular and uniquely Alaskan shore excursion that you will be talking about for years to come!

This Skagway dog sled tour starts just a short distance from your cruise docks at the basecamp right along the historic shores of Skagway. You will have a quick safety briefing before heading into the skies for your 15 minutes of helicopter time, where you will fly over Skagway's jagged peaks to the mushing camp situated high on the Juneau Icefield. Once here, your dogsledding experience starts with 30 minutes to interact with the dogs and mushers, learn about the history of the sport, and receive instructions on just what goes into mushing.

As you prepare for the mushing portion of your tour, watch as the dogs yip in excitement and strain against their harnesses as they are chosen for the team; these dogs live to run. Then you are off! The Skagway Helicopter & Dogsled puts you in the musher's seat, letting you and other members of your party trade off on mushing your own crew of dogs for 30 minutes. When you have finished your sled, the helicopter portion of the return will be just as breathtaking as the takeoff, as you fly back into Skagway from high above. Don't forget your cameras, this Skagway dog sled tour is one you will want photos of to last a lifetime!
