Mush the 2013 Iditarod champion sled dogs! Visit Seavey's IdidaRide racing kennel, where four generations of the Seavey family and 100 of the toughest dogs in the world train during the summer months. You'll be helping train their 46th Iditarod team for their 4th championship. Cuddle the adorable husky puppies, try on the gear worn when it's 40 below, and get a pawtograph from their Golden Harness winning lead dogs. Sleds with padded seats and suspension, fully covered tour, and dog themed gift shop make this the most fun you can have in Seward in the rain. Voted "Best Sled Dog Ride in Alaska" by readers of the Alaska Magazine.

Our group enjoyed a tour of the facilities. Our guide has run the Iditarod several times. His personal stories of the courage and determination it takes really makes the race come to life. After a brief introduction, we got on a "sled" with wheels pulled by a team of dogs and set off on a ride around the property. Afterward,... More

We were in Seward for a few hours prior to catching our cruise. I reached out to the company a few months ago to see if they could provide transportation for us as we would not have a car but really wanted to do this tour. They said yes, no problem, we provide transportation for cruise ship guests all the... More

This was absolutely amazing! Make reservations before you visit so you will not miss this experience! The drive is almost 2 hours inland they did not have a shuttle service but we had a rental for the 2 weeks we were in Alaska. There was road construction that added to our drive time. Please Do Not miss this! The people... More

It's hard to describe just how good the glacier sledding trip is! From the moment you arrive at Alpine Air you know you're in for a treat - the staff are friendly and made things run like clockwork. You're helped into special clothing, then it's into a helicopter to fly up to the glacier. The approach to the glacier is... More

We had a great time with the sled dogs. The experience was informative and fun. Our guide, Kevin, was outstanding. I would highly recommend stopping in if you are in the area.

Everyone there was really nice. Our tour guide was a retired sled dog musher. We got to meet some of the dogs, hold puppies, and go on a ride in a wagon being pulled by a dog team.

I wasn't expecting the dog sled ride which was interesting.There are lots of dogs and its kind of a shock but it works for them and also the dogs were really excited to start the ride which by the way, they use voice commands only to make them go, stop etc...pretty impressive. They had puppies but I felt bad for... More

On our way to Seward from Anchorage we stopped here, great tour that really helped us understand what it takes to train for the Iditarod and to raise and care for sled dogs. The training cart sled dog ride through the trails in the woods was also really cool. Our twin sons loved the experience and even got to cuddle... More
