we're heading to alaska this august and would love to do the dog sledding, which port is best for that? juneau, ketchikan or skagway??? how cold would it be and is it worth it?
thanks a bunch!!
Skagway is slightly less canceled than Juneau. BUT no guarantees anywhere. I would suggest if of interest BOOK ASAP. TEMSCO out of Skagway, MAY take independent bookings, and Coastal out of Juneau. Have back up plans. This tour gets consistant raves.
I did dogsledding in Skagway. I did it in the afternoon, turns out the morning flights were cancelled b/c of weather. One of the best experiences. Everyone who goes to Alaska should do this. I booked it independently from the ship with Temsco. (the cruise line actually uses the same company) The heliport is right next to where the ships dock in skagway so no need for transportation.
