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.

Patrick Beall (Idirarod driver for Seavey) did an excellent job of describing what it is like to run the Iditarod, answering any question you may have as you go along. T\he dog sled pull was great, but part of me wishes I would have done one on snow (seems to require a plane/helicopter ride). It was great to meet the... More

The staff were great, the tour was great, and of course the ride was unforgettable! We highly recommend the 'Real Alaska' tour with the trip to Exit glacier, lunch, a stop at a salmon hatchery, and a brief tour of Seward. If you're in Seward, this is. Must-do!

Seavey's and their crew were very hospitable while staying with them and taking the sled dog tour. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He had completed the Iditarod last year so had great insight!

Not only do you get a sled dog ride, but you learn so much about the dogs and what it takes to race them. The staff were willing and able to answer as many questions as we could ask, and were able to use humor to keep things fun and entertaining. We walked away having a great deal of respect... More

After reading all the reviews here on Trip Advisor I decided to take one of these tours on an afternoon in Seward. It had its ups and downs. First of all I thought the $75 per person was way expensive...especially when I discovered later that if you go to the Alaskan Heritage Center in Anchorage you not only get great... More

We enjoy keeping up with dog sledding and the mushers. We decided to go to this place, it was so much fun. We met the dogs, met current and future mushers and the dogs. We were able to ride a sled pulled by 16 dogs, the dogs were all barking like crazy to be hooked up. They love to run... More

My wife, 3 year old daughter and I enjoyed our trip to the Seavey's operation. The actual time on the sled was only about 30 minutes and the rest of it had a bit of a disorganized feel. Definitely a one of a kind experience but a little pricey at $175 for a family of 3 for an hour and... More

We went with our two kids (ages 4 and 9) and we ALL had a spectacular time. From the moment we arrived to check in, w were greeted warmly. One of the family talked with us about the history of the Ididarod race, dog sledding, and about the dogs themselves. We saw the dogs, and they were very hands on... More

My family and I took the glacier dog sled ride at Girdwood. It was the highlight of our trip to Alaska. The people in the office were so friendly and helpful. It was a beautiful day so we only had to wear light wind outfits. We boarded the helicopter to get to Punchbowl Glacier. The ride was just awesome. The... More

Of the two weeks we spent in Alaska, for my 9 and 14 year old sons this was one of their top highlights (and mine too). They did a excellent job - a great few hours of time. Fascinating to learn about dog sled racing.
