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.

We did this tour as part of our 7 Days/7 Nights Deluxe Alaska Sampler railroad package. We were not sure what to expect with this tour (as an outsider, we're not sure how sled rides are conducted without snow). It turns out they have a cart that the dogs pulled along certain trails through the woods and by a river.... More

Need to be a dog lover, but who isn't? The guides did a great job talking up their sport and the dogs.

We had a wonderful experience on the IdidaRide Sled Dog Tour! It was more than just the ride - we had the opportunity to hold the pups, pet the dogs, learn about the training and gear for the Ididarod and any question we had, was answered by very educated and informed people.

Ride with the dogs that raced this years Iditarod. Our guide Justin was funny and informative and ran the Iditarod race himself. the puppies were fun and the Iditarod presentation was enlightening. Great experience although no dog sledding on snow but understandable in the summer. must do experience in Seward.

Wonderful reception at the desk with a video playing while we waited for the tour to begin. Knowledgable and sincere tour guides who answered all questions. The experience of sitting in the sled was as the dogs did the work was amazing. The opportunity for hands on interaction with the dogs and equipment was refreshing.

Absolutely a place not to be missed. The gal that lead our tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. Learning about the dogs was interesting. The dog sled tour was truly a unique experience and fun. Can't wait to see our guide in the 2017 Iditarod!

This tour was very informative and had variety - met dogs and puppies, went on the dog sled, found out more about the races and dogs. The dogs are clearly happy with running, and were well looked after. Would be great to experience this in the winter too.

Our guide, Justin, had actually participated in the Iditarod and did a great job. We got to hold the 2-week puppies. Awesome tour. One of the highlights of our trip to Alaska.
