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

My husband & I went on a tour with our 9 & 10 year old girls. It was a great experience! It wasn't like a tour at all, it was more like hanging out with the Seavey Family. The dogs are amazing athletes and the staff is informative and fun! Our IdidaRide Sled Dog Tour was a highlight of our... More

A must see when visiting alaska. Learn about the dogs and what makes them so special, take a sled dog ride, meet the dogs, try on a snow suit and hold a puppy. There is so much to learn about what makes the Ididarod and Alaskan sensation. Glad we spent the afternoon with the Seavey's. Highly recommend.

You have to go to see the excitement of these dogs and hold a puppy. These animals are soooo excited to see you and to be selected to take you on a ride through the Alaska beauty, We have been here numerous times and they do a great job.

Overall I thought this was a very good tour which gave us a nice first look at Seward. We were picked up promptly (August 2014) when our train arrived in Seward at about 11:30 am. Bus was roomy and comfortable. I was with my father in law, husband and 2 sons 12 and 13. We were taken to Resurrection Road... More

It's not just a sled dog wagon ride, but it's also a chance to hold puppies and hear stories about competing in the Iditarod! Our wagon driver was a fellow who has his own Iditarod team, so his stories of the race really made the experience real for us, and it was great to hang out with him.

Glacier dog sledding was great. The helicopter ride to the Glacier, to the personalized tour. Getting to know what a sled team is all about, the hard work, the love of their dogs is intense. So recommend this adventure.

For us, this was the perfect way to spend the time between getting off our cruise ship and taking the evening train to Anchorage. We were able to leave our luggage at the station, spend the day on the tour, and were dropped off in time to board the train that evening. Loved getting to experience the Seavey's sled dogs... More

My sister and I arrived in Seward the first week of May, right between the winter and summer tourist seasons, meaning that many attractions were not open. However, when we contacted Seavey's, they readily agreed to book just the two of us a tour of their facilities and a ride on the dog sled (some places don't offer this in... More
