I highly recommend going with Seward Helicopters over Juneau or Skagway as they are a smaller operation, more personalised treatment and smaller group sizes. Just check out pictures from the 2 dog camps and you'll see what I mean (and the price is the same)....More

We had heard that folks who did dog sledding from cruise ships thought the dogs were not loved and that the ride on wheels was nothing special so we decided to go to snow. We were not disappointed. It was foggy but Zack our pilot...More

It's funny how micro climates work. Sometimes the rainiest days in Seward make for the greatest days at dog camp! We really love our dogs and our entire operation revolves around their care and well being, so we are grateful that was what you came...More

Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. We booked through their website and then called to confirm. Super accommodating and responsive by phone.
