Girdwood Sightseeing Tours and Activities

Our Prince William Sound Cruise and Sea Kayaking Tours are featuring excellent wildlife viewing, magnificent scenery and calving tidewater glacier. Accessed from Whittier, Alaska, 60-miles (96.6 km) south of Anchorage, Prince William Sound is the more protected area with generally calmer seas. In fact, one tour company operating a catamaran in the Sound guarantees no seasickness upon a money-back return. The appeal of this cruise is mainly glaciers. Wildlife is often encountered such as sea otters, whales, sea birds and seals basking on floating icebergs, but it’s the incredible number of alpine, cirque, piedmont and active tidewater glaciers that are the most impressive aspect of these tours.

SGI1001 Glacier Dog Sledding & Helicopter Tour

The history of dog sleds in Alaska runs deep. A visit to the last frontier isn't complete without a true dog-sledding experience. During the summer, guests can still partake in the excitement of dog sledding - on a glacier! A perfect combination - spectacular glacier views and adorable Alaska Husky puppies - make for an adrenaline-filled outing. Enjoy a spectacular helicopter flight through the Chugach Mountains to a remote glacier high-camp. Experience the enthusiasm of Alaskan Iditarod Huskies while mushing on an alpine snowfield. Guests will have a chance to ride the dogsled while taking in the grandeur of Punch Bowl Glacier and the Chugach Mountains. The Dog Camp is managed by the Seavey family, renown for raising teams of Iditarod champions. You will learn all about the dogs, a musher's lifestyle, and the famous Iditarod trail. This tour includes plenty of photo opportunities of you driving a dog team surrounded by glaciers and mountain peaks, cuddling with puppies and dressed up like an Iditarod musher!
