Wilderness Dog Sled Ride and Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    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.

    My family went out with a small group to visit with the dogs and had an amazing experience. Don’t miss the chance to play with the puppies!

    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

    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 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... More
