When planning this family trip, I asked my husband and both children to look over the excursion options. I, of course had already done so, and knew the prices were steep. However, I felt that I wanted everyone to have the opportunity to consider..."I'm going all this way, maybe one time in my life, and if I don't do "X", I will be disappointed. Secretly, my hope was to go dog sledding. My daughter came in on the same page as me (no surprise) and while my son thought dog sledding sounded fun, there was no way in *^## he was getting on a helicopter to do it. That said, I was able to put together a day for "the boys" while the girls went on the most expensive excursion offered.
That said, I am thrilled to say it was probably one of the best days of my life. The helicopter ride was a LITTLE!!! anxiety producing, but I tried to put on a good face for my daughter. Once we landed on the glacier I was smiles, ear to ear. The place was beautiful. The dogs were beautiful. The money was well spent. It was pure joy. If you ever have the opportunity, I highly recommend going for it.
As for the boys, I don't remember where we sent them that day...
