Float above the mountains in a helicopter and then traverse a snowy glacier on a dog sled ride pulled by Iditarod champion huskies. Combine dog sledding, walking on a glacier, and flying in a helicopter into one concentrated Alaska bucket-list experience. If you’re looking for sled dogs on snow during the Alaskan summer season, you just found it. This is the only way to mush on snow outside of the winter.
