Your tour starts with afternoon pickup from your hotel and transfer by van to the dog sled headquarters. Your guide shares a brief overview of dog mushing, then takes you out to meet the furry stars of the team. Your guides introduce you to some of the more than 90 dogs and answer questions about the canine athletes.
Watch as your guide gets the dog team harnessed up, then step into your sled for your ride into the wilderness. The all-weather sled is equipped with comfortable padded seats and tires for warmer conditions. Have time for photo ops of Alaska's natural beauty and the dogs at work as you ride through the woods.
After your sled ride, return to the kennel area to see the adorable puppies. Have time to play with the husky pups and pose for photos. Then learn about the supplies needed for the Iditarod, and watch a demonstration about harnesses, training, and race strategy for the dogs.
Your tour ends with return transfer to your hotel in Seward.

This was an amazing experience. Our group was first talked to by one of the Seavey family. They have a long tradition of the Iditarod in their family. We learned about the dogs and their special attributes to make them perfect for the race. We...More
The facility is close to Seward and it's nice they have a pick up service. The staff/handlers are super friendly and very knowledgable. And the information/history presentation along with Q&A were nicely done and very informative. The sled tour was very enjoyable and fun to...More
We had a great time on the wilderness dog sled ride! We also enjoyed playing with the puppies and the explanation of how a dog sled team runs the Iditarod race. Would definitely recommend for all ages.
We would highly recommend visiting this wilderness and dog sled tour if you are in Seward. This is a family business and all staff are so knowledgeable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our tour and can’t thank them enough for a once in...More

We did the Real Alaska package which included visiting the "facility", getting educated on the dogs, loving on some puppies and going on a ~2 mile wheeled sled ride. Resurrection Mountain and Box Canyon Creek sound familiar.
We then took a bus (part of that package) up to Exit Glacier for a short hike in to the glacier. That package also includes lunch at the Resurrection Roadhouse at the Seward Windsong. All told, 5-6 hours.
I'd check with them (Seaveys Ididaride) and see if there's a specific package that draws your interest. They do also offer a helo in to a glacier and dog sled ride package but it's a lot spendier.

We were there late June with no snow, so my guess would be probably not. However, they use covered wagons in the summer so you get the same sort of experience - watching the dogs at work, enjoying the scenery - just no snow. You also get a chance to talk to mushers (some of whom have raced the Iditarod themselves), interact with the dogs, and (if available) hold puppies. The dogs are treated so well, and it’s fun to watch them get excited about working. They jump around and vie for spots on the line. We were told that, like any athlete, the dogs train all year, so while there is no snow it is just an off-season workout for them. I hope you go - it was a great experience!
