I traveled to Alaska in August 2014 so I'm a little late writing this review. However, I still think back about the incredible experience I had at Turning Heads Kennel. I like small group tours and this tour was only me and my three friends....More

Helicopter ride to dogsled on a glacier. I don't even need to write anymore. It is as epic as it sounds. Guys were super great to hang out with, and it was wonderful to spend time with the dogs.

Helicopter ride to the top of the glacier, dog sled ride through the snow, helicopter ride back to our car. Fantastic day. Everyone was great: office lady, helicopter pilot, both mushers, and the dogs. Hugging the puppies was also fun. Best day in Alaska.

Again, WHERE are you located? I know that this is in Seward. Is there a street address or road name? Do I just drive into the town and see the kennels? Can you give me driving directions either from Seward or Summit Lake? I'm sorry, I didn't notice your location on this site. Thank you

Hello, Sorry! We didn't know about the "questions" feature in Trip Advisor and were not aware you had asked this. We are about an hour south of Summit Lake and are located in Seward. We hope you will make it down!
