Outbound Heli Adventures
Fly down the Knik river valley and past the towering Pioneer Peak with views of The Sleeping Lady and Denali to Big Lake, Alaska, where you will be welcomed at The Dogstead! Home of respected Iditarod musher Nic Petit and his kennel of lovable pups. In the winter enjoy a ride atop snow packed trails under the alpenglow on a traditional dog sled. In the fall, take in the sights of changing leaves and termination dust and the feel of crisp air on your cheeks, as the dogs give you the ride of your life! Feel the rush of racing dogs and see why Nic and his pups consistently finish in the top 10 of every race they run!
After your mushing experience, you can opt to get back in the chopper and continue flightseeing your way out to the Knik Glacier for a landing and some trekking on exposed glacial ice. Combing the two experiences gives you an incredible amount of time in the air to view Alaska in all of its grandeur, as well as to have several experiences that are unique to Alaska in one adventure!
