Default Dogsledding

Has anyone done a dogsledding excursion? Can you share your experience, good and bad and if you think it was worthwhile. Can I do dogsledding without having to do it in conjunction with helicopter ride?

we are scheduled on temsco helicoptor/ sled ride on the denver glacier for aug 7
the only way to get there that is practical is by helocoptor.

when i started looking i found a site that has dog sled rides on no snow trails- the sleds have wheels on them and the dogs wear booties. it is much much cheaper then the helicoptor one but not nearly as realistic. we personally chose reallism over price

We did the dogsledding/helicopter excursion in Skagway July 9th. We LOVED it! the helicopter trip was breathtaking, and the dogsledding was so much fun! It really was the highlight of the cruise. Already booked it for next year!

yes out of Seward and Skagway- my kids loved it, with the edge to Seavey's in Seward. Have been canceled twice on the glacier dog sledding. Also don't miss the sled dog demo- free- at Denali Park.

Rick, what cruiseline did you book the excursion with? Also, do you know if they take independent direct bookings? Was it Temsco that provided this excursion??
