On our March trip to Alaska, we found this one of the highlights of our adventures. The Seward clan was most hospitable, knowledgeable about this intriguing sport, and their love of the dogs was unmistakable. The sled ride was great and really drove home the fact that these animals are true athletes, but the puppy experience was awesome. We highly... More

Our whole family enjoyed this experience. We loved learning about the dogs, sled racing and the Iditarod. We now have a whole new appreciation and perspective on it. The dogs truly love to run and got so excited when they knew it was time to pull the sleds! My daughter loved holding the puppies. It was great to learn about... More

We went to see Seavey's IdidaRide Sled Dog Tour in Seward. Mr. Seavey provided many interesting details of the sport which tests the skills of even the toughest Alaskan. I was impressed with the love and care the Seaveys have for their dogs. The cart ride was not just a "tourist" attraction, as I had thought, but a good workout... More

The folks who work at Seavey's are knowledgeable about the dogs, about sled racing, and give you a feel for what it is like. You first learn about the dogs, take about a mile sled excursion, and then get to hold the Huskie puppies. Definitely worthwhile when you are in Seward.

A fantastic tour with one of the founding families of the Iditarod. It's obvious all the staff love their jobs and the dogs. It is also obvious the dogs love what they do. Very educational on sled dogs and their training along with what all the mushers go through. A fun dog sled ride and a chance to pet the... More

This is the family that actually won the Idarod for the past two years and they do a great job showing you what it takes. The puppies are adorable and being on a dog-pulled vehicle is an unforgettable experience. They are extremely professional and I would recommend this your to anyone, especially if you have kids.

My daughter went to Alaska for her Make a Wish trip. Seavey's donated the tour for her. She loves animals and had a ball petting the dog's, holding the puppies and riding the dog sled. It was a great tour and would recommend this to anyone visiting Alaska. Very fun and informative.

Entertaining and informative talk on dog sledding. Kennels seemed to be kept quite clean considering the number of dogs. The dogs appeared in good condition and unconcerned at tourists, though we weren't told why some dogs were caged away from others and I was a little concerned to be petting four-week old puppies. The ride was fun with many photo... More
