Have booked helicopter/dog sledding to Mendenhall and was wondering if I would see enough of the glacier or would people also recommend doing the Tracy Arm excursion? They obviously both would happen the same day- Tracy Arm-8-1pm then helicopter 4:30-7:30.
Too much? Thanks everyone!

They are both excellent excursions, completely different experiences. If you can do both, I would.

I agree! We did the Tracy Arm (well Endicott Arm) which was very cool and then we did a helicopter onto Mendenhall, which was awesome too! They are two very different ways to experience glaciers.

We have both booked next month.

The way I figure it, I may never be back so if I miss it, I'd miss it. Don't wanna miss either of these adventures.
