Even in the rain in September 2013, we had a great tour with Justin Savidis, and enjoyed getting to see the dogs. Followed the race this year and were pleased to see Justin as well as the Seavey's. Great opportunity, thanks for having the attraction.

Did this tour mid 2013. Mushed with the dogs and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. They kitted me up in all the mushers winter gear and I felt so warm underneath all this. This is one tour you don't want to miss. Great people too. Highly recommended.

One of the dynasties of dog mushing share their love for this exciting Alaskan sport, and give you the chance to experience it first-hand. In beautiful woodland surroundings near a spectacular glacier, the veteran Iditarod racing family and their experienced helpers introduce you to the enthusiastic dogs and give you a fascinating insight into the history and current experiences of...

I’m a dogsledder for life! The Iditaride with the Seavey team was…..awesome. We met at a small cabin-like building where we signed our release forms, received a crash course in mushing and geared up for the ride. They have extra snowpants and sunglasses if you don’t bring them but my advice, make sure you bring them because it’s bright and... More

My family and I had a great time. Our main goal is to explore Exit Glacier, and we chose this tour. Not only did we get to ride a dog sled, but also learn to control our own sled which I was quite nervous in the beginning, but the direction was very clear. There was a whole new respect to... More

Two friends, my wife, and I just returned from a quick trip to Alaska over the long President's Day weekend and the highlight of the trip, by far, was the Seavey's sled dog mushing tour in Seward. Due to the nature of our travel arrangements, we didn't make an advance reservation and just showed up (not recommended). We tried to... More

In 4 degree weather, we crazy San Diegans wanted some literally, cool adventure. Conway Seavey in Sterling, Alaska area accommodated our family with a fun, dog sled tour. We all mushed the friendly and so smart dogs; even my 9 year old mushed along side Conway-2013, Junior Iditarod champion! What a rush it was to meet the 100 dogs!

My grandson, age 10, and I experiences a wild ride and a great educational experience this summer. We booked our adventure early online and didn't even realize how special it was to experience the Ididarod with Alaska royalty! We not only got to ride behind dogs that ran the race but our musher won the junior Ididarod. Seavey patriarch started... More

We had a great time meeting the doggies and puppies and taking the ride through the woods. Since it was my son's 18th birthday, he had to sign his own waiver, LOL. Of course, nothing wayward happened, our guide was very well-trained and professional with the "puppies". This review is for May 2012, just finally getting around to writing them!

Well, you've taken the time (and money!) to travel all the way to Alaska so do yourself a favour, see this attraction! The Seavey family have an envious record in the Iditarod Classic, with different generations featuring in top 5 placings. Having over 200 dogs (yes, that's 200!) in their establishment, their knowledge and ability to convey it to their... More
