Word on the boards is that if you're going to do the dog sledding, you need to choose the one on Mendenhall Glacier. Even tours of the Mendenhall glacier without the dogsled ride is supposed to be so breathtaking and beautiful that it can't even be described in words because there are not sufficient words in the English language for anything this stunning. But all the daytime dog sled tours on Mendenhall Glacier are sold out and there is only a 4:15 left. I wonder how cold it's going to be at 5:00pm at night on a Glacier? And how many on board activities will I miss if I do this? I will certainly miss dinner with my group.
I have also been told you can book a tour and sled ride that is not provided through the cruise line and my research has turned up 3 other companies that do this. But I also have to be very careful not to end up on one that makes me miss the cruise ship actually leaving at the end of the day. Note to self, call cruise line tomorrow and ask what time we leave Juneau and call Temsco helicopter tours and ask the price of the dogsled tour.
