Palmer: Glacier Dogsled & Helicopter Tour

1. Palmer: Glacier Dogsled & Helicopter Tour

Soar over Alaska on a spectacular helicopter ride above glaciers and icebergs. Search the skyline for moose, black bears, Dall sheep and mountain goats. Land on a glacier snow field and enjoy a whole hour with Alaskan sled dogs and their mushers who live here all summer long. Take the dog team for an exhilarating dogsled ride through snow, surrounded by amazing scenery. Overboots so your shoes stay dry, extra jackets and warm gear can be provided. Stand on the runners and mush your own dog team, or sit on the sled and let the mushers run the team. The length of this tour makes it perfect for any traveler. After the dogsled tour, meet the canine athletes that pulled your sled, listen to stories about running sled dog races of over a 1,000 miles long, meet the puppies and take pictures with your favorite dogs. After your dogsled experience, the helicopter will fly over the lower glaciers where you can see the blue melt pools and the crevasses on your way back to the lodge.

Willow: Summer Dog Sledding Ride in Alaska

2. Willow: Summer Dog Sledding Ride in Alaska

Take a summertime sled ride near Willow in a 2-seater cart specially designed for dog mushing. Be greeted by a guide and a yard full of excited dogs. Get away from noisy motors and traffic on a secluded trail. Later, take a nature walk and see a demonstration of winter sledding gear. Just an hour drive north of Anchorage, and only 45 minutes north of Palmer, come meet the dogs and watch their energy levels skyrocket as your guide gets the team ready to go. Then, hit private trails for a 1-2 mile run, depending on weather conditions, and be fully immersed in the wild. The carts are 100% dog-powered so you can take in the natural sounds around you. Keep your eyes peeled as you may catch a glimpse of a moose, fox, lynx, black bear, or bald eagle. Make several stops along the way to give the dogs a chance to cool down and take photos with them. Once back in the kennel, watch the dogs energetically dive into kiddie pools and zip around. They'll usually make their way over to you for a cuddle or two before taking off again. Treat yourself to some cookies and water to rehydrate. Next, head out on a nature walk to a wooden pavilion with views of Denali for a hands-on presentation of the training gear used in wintertime. Check out Iditarod race sleds and try stepping onto the runners. Slip on this year's Iditarod race bib and get into the shoes of an Alaskan musher. Hear personal tales of the race tracks from your guide. Conclude the tour in an indoor gift shop where you can see more racing memorabilia and check out race team swag.
