Although I have never attended I love following the Iditarod on the internet every year. I had so many questions that were answered. The facility was high quality. The staff Eric and Grayson were excellent in customer service and shared their wealth of knowledge easily. I will look forward to watching Grayson Bruton in the 2015 Iditarod as probably the... More

Though I'm a permanent resident of St. Simons Island, Georgia I have a cabin in Hope which, if you can't guess, means that whenever I'm in Hope I'm not alone. July's trip to Hope was no exception. For the last several years my son and I have taken friends and family to see the Seavey family just outside Seward. "To... More

Any dog lover would love this tour. The Seavey's do a wonderful job handling the crowds and teaching about the dogs and the Ididaride. Worth every penny!

Great activity for families. The ride was fun, and you learn about the Iditarod race, the dogs, etc. Kids and adults will enjoy cuddling with the puppies. It never felt rushed or like just another tourist activity but was authentic and engaging.

We took the "Real Alaska" tour which included visiting the sled dog lot, holding puppies, riding in a cart pulled by the dogs, lunch, hiking to the toe of Exit glacier, watching sockeye salmon spawn and a driving tour of Seward. It was great to learn about the Iditarod from people who actually do it and their passion for the... More

The best way to learn about the Iditarod Dog Sled Race is to talk to the folks who've race it. The mushers and their stories are priceless and the opportunity to meet the dogs is as fun as the actual ride.

Take this tour!!!! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska! The sled dog ride was great! It gave us an idea of the pace of a sled dog ride through Alaska. They explained the Iditarod and we were able to play with the puppies (I am a cat person and still enjoyed myself). Part of the... More

This is such a great way to learn more about the Iditarod.The tour is ideal for all ages. Musher and Junior Iditarod winner Meredith Mapes offered great historical information about the race, demonstrated what attire is required for the mushers and the dogs, and showed us the sled Mitch Seavey designed.

What a thrill to ride in a dog sled on wheels, pulled by 16 dogs. My 85 year old mother in law loved the ride. Everyone was very informative on the care of the dogs and the race won in March. Recommend the tour to everyone.
