This excursion I thought would be fun to do. It wasn’t. Dog sledding on dry land was extremely boring. Certainly not worth the money they charge.

We did this as a shore excursion. The fairly long bus rides back and forth were made interesting by our guide, Chad. After the bus we rode an all-terrain vehicle called a Unimog. The trip to the camp was quite steep but was handled with...More

This was a ship’s excursion that we truly enjoyed. We are ‘dog people’, but hard to think anyone would not enjoy mushing with real sled dogs, meeting real-life Iditarod mushers and holding husky puppies!! Our musher while dog sledding was a woman in training for...More

Highly recommended. My kids loved the ride up the mountain and we're thrilled when we saw a mother brown bear and her two cubs on the way up. Our guide was entertaining as well as knowledgable. The sled ride was just the right length and...More

You’d have to check the cost but to do snow you would either do a helicopter or plane tour that would take you where the snow is. Probably around $500 usd.

It’s $600 per person to take a helicopter to a glacier and do dog sledding. But beware, most of them get cancelled. I tried in two ports and both were cancelled for weather (this was in August).

We booked via the cruise ship but they should be online or on the TripAdviser "Things to do in Skagway" page
