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.

This tour was an excellent glimpse into the sport of sled dogs. The tour guides were actual mushers and very friendly. They even let our sons give the dogs a command on the sled. We were allowed to hold 6 day old husky puppies and pet the other dogs. Interesting, informative, adorable and fun.

This was definitely worth the time and money! Learning about the dogs from those who actually race them combined with a beautiful hike to the glacier was by far a full day of fun. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we enjoyed every minute. Thank you for a wonderful Alaskan memory!

Patrick gave us all kinds of information regarding the place and the dogs. We had Dan Seavey as our musher and my husband got to stand on the back of the cart with Dan while we got a ride with the dog team pulling. We had Diesel, who is famous dog in our team. The dogs were awesome! Everyone was... More

We had a super time doing the 1 1/2 hour tour at the kennels and ride. Great for all ages, not just for kids. We got to see the kennels first hand, ride the wheeled "sleds" and play with super sweet puppies. Danny was really great and I would recommend this to anyone. I am amazed with how hard these...

My husband & I have been on a fun dog sled ride on top of Swiss alps. Though it was only for very short time, it was quite an experience! At first, we both did not want to take this tour with Seavey's Ididaride, but just my son's family of 5 would go. Unfortunately the 2 younger grandkids (8 &... More

This was an unplanned stop, but had a great time. The dogs were fun to play with, and we learned a lot about them from Justin, a true musher. High recommend that you visit.

Alyssa, our driver/guide, was interesting... More

We would not have done this but a colleague recommended it. Quite fun and we learned a lot about the dogs and race. Plus puppy time! We did the 90 minute experience, a bit over priced but an enjoyable event.
