Though saber-toothed tigers were early candidates for domestication, specifically for sledding purposes, their habit of cheerfully goring sled guests was too much for mushers to handle. Experience the thrill of rugged domestication with today's Groupon: for $209, you get a helicopter and dog-sled tour of Godwin Glacier from Seward Helicopter Tours (a $419 value).

A Pollux Aviation helicopter propels small groups high above the Alaskan wilderness to take in gorgeous views of the Godwin Glacier before dropping them off to skate in sleds across the landscape's pristine white snow. After nearly 15 minutes of sightseeing, your chopper lands safely on the glacier, and a musher straps you in a sled pulled by a troupe of professional pups. An unforgettable sled tour leads adventurers through scenes of sublime beauty as dogs dart precariously between the outstretched legs of yetis and dodge stampedes of perturbed polar bears. At the ride’s end, actual mushers introduce groups to the puppies, pose for pictures, and swap harrowing trail stories. Training and racing dogs throughout the winter imparts the staff with an intimate knowledge of the sport and the Alaskan landscape, which they are glad to share with curious observers.

A great experience for outdoor explorers of all ages and abilities, this summer helicopter tour pairs a low-activity level with a high elevation of excitement. Guides provide all the gear and equipment necessary for this 1.5-hour tour, including helmets and special dog whistles to discourage barking that could induce headaches or sudden slobber avalanches.

Seward Helicopter Tours

At Seward Helicopter Tours a dog team escorts visitors on summer and winter tours preceded by helicopter flights. Guests can trek among the icebergs of Bear Glacier, soar above the whales, sea lions, and harbor seals of Resurrection Bay, or rest in a sled as dogs power it through Godwin Glacier. Seward Helicopter Tours' pilots can also drop guests off on half- to multiday kayaking trips or two-hour guided excursions through an ice field's moulins, moraines, and vacationing zambonis.

Customer Reviews

The helicopter tour was brief, 15 minutes each way, but the scenery was stunning! Pilot was conversational and made it fun. Enjoyed the time on the glacier interacting with the sled dogs and mushers. It was fun to see the passion for the sport and hear the experiences and stories of the Iditirod. Our flight was canceled due to weather but they worked us into an alternate day, which turned out sunny and perfect for photos. This was the highlight of our vacation! I highly recommend this unique experience.
