The flight to our remote sled dog camp is a significant part of your adventure with us. Once airborne with NorthStar Helicopters you’ll appreciate why. The Juneau Icefield is one of the largest in the world so have camera ready.
Your excitement starts when you board a NorthStar Helicopter and meet your personal pilot. You’ll fly over several glaciers and incredible views on your way to “mush” with us. Truly, the most dramatic sight is flying over the Taku Glacier. It is the largest glacier of the Juneau Icefield being 35 miles long and spreading over 5 miles wide at its base!
We pride ourselves in taking you on a non-direct flight to and from our sled dog camp so we can show off our “back yard”. This may be your only visit to Alaska and we want you to embrace as much of its majesty as possible.
As you climb to the Norris Glacier you’ll get your first view of what we affectionately call “Dog World”. You’ll find 160 sled dogs barking and howling in excitement, waiting for you to take you on “mush” across the glacier.
