Great Tour. This was something different especially due to the Guides and their presentations. Darrell did a great job or explaining the history of the Iditarod, how it works, the equipment needed. Then Sybil took us out on a "summer" Dog sled tour. As with Darrell, she explained how to take care of the dogs and how they used different dogs for different functions. Very interesting.

This tour was awesome! Our son(8) had an amazing birthday with them. It wasn't your typical tourist experience at all, this was the real deal. We learned about the sport and were able to ask a ton of questions. Our guides all mushed as part of their daily life and could really help you to understand the sport. And don't forget the puppies...they were all so cute, soft and snuggly. When you are in Seward this is a must do experience.

This tour is a wonderful way to spend a few hours before boarding the Alaska Railroad back to Anchorage from Seward. Our tour bus guide drove our group of 14 to the Seavy Dog Sled location where we were introduced to the sled dogs and then a chance to hold and pet the one month old and three month old puppies. Everyone was given a demonstration of how the sled dogs are trained for the Ididarod and other races. The fun comes when groups of nine are able to board a wheeled sled pulled by a team of Alaskan huskies for a ride through the forest. I was able to co-mush with Lora our dog guide. It was so much fun!!! After leaving the dogs we were driven to Seward for a nice lunch in Seward at the Sea Salt restaurant. Our driver guide then took us to a salmon weir to observe the fish making a leap to go upstream. We topped off our day with an optional one mile round trip hike to view the Exit Glacier. The tour lasted from 11 am until 5 pm and we enjoyed every minute!
