Come and mush with 5-time and 2021 Iditarod Champion Dallas Seavey’s Dog Team in this unique Alaskan experience!
Start this dogsled adventure with a helicopter flight along the Chugach Mountain Range and its several glaciers as we make our way to the giant Knik Glacier. Look down on the glacially fed Lake George with its massive icebergs rolling over in the glacial water. Unlike most glaciated areas, the Chugach Mountains offer abundant wildlife like moose, Dall sheep, and black bears.
Land on a high glacial snow field and enjoy a whole hour with Alaskan Husky sled dogs and their seasoned mushers. Meet the canine athletes that will pull your sled, listen to stories about running sled dog races across the Alaskan wilderness, and of course take pictures with your favorite pups! Take the dog team out for an exhilarating dogsled ride across the snow field amid towering peaks. You can stand on the runners and mush your own dog team if you want, or just sit on the sled and let the mushers run the team as you take in the ride.
The length of this tour makes it perfect for the whole family, and we often see three generations having fun together. There are fantastic photo opportunities throughout this tour experience. Enjoy the scenic helicopter flight with bird’s eye views of blue melt pools and the crevasses as you make your way back to the lodge heli-base.
Make this the ultimate multi-activity adventure by adding on a glacier landing en route back to the lodge. A glacier landing provides 30-minutes of time on the glacier to explore the azure blue melt pools and bizarre ice formations with your pilot guide.
Mush your own sled-dog team on a glacial snow field surrounded by towering mountains.
