RE-POSTED 7/31 with additional 3 1/2 minute video!
Note: Rather than write an article about dog-sledding, I decided to edit and post this video which my 7-year-old daughter took during her adventure. I was on the rear sled and didn't realize my daughter was doing commentary until I reviewed the footage in editing! Turn on the sound - and all your dog-sledding questions will be answered!
Dog Sledding on a Glacier is by far the absolute highlight of a visit to Alaska, especially if you have a dog-loving child. It's likely the most expensive option for Alaska cruise excursions and most certainly worth it. You get to the glacier by helicopter, which in itself is an exciting and scenic adventure. In the middle of an expansive ice field, a whole camp of dog houses awaits - and plenty of dogs ready to run!
Here are just a few shots of the experience I shared with my daughter:
After an exciting sledding adventure, a video clip of which I will add later, we return to camp to meet some adorable puppies!
Find these and many more in the Mira Terra gallery of Alaska travel images (new additions coming every few days)!
Happy Photo Friday to my Delicious Baby Followers - I've missed a couple weeks but as you can see, I've been on an adventure and I trust these pics are worth the wait!
