Mush the 2013 Iditarod champion sled dogs! Visit Seavey's IdidaRide racing...

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.

Dogsledding was on my must-do list when I went to Alaska. My sister and I were in Seward for part of our trip, and decided to go to Seavey's IdidaRide for the ultimate experience on 5 September 2016. The friendly staff really gave us unique insight into the sport of dogsledding and a newfound respect for the training that both... More

As for this tour, everyone at the Seavey's place made this tour great. Very knowledgeable & eager to make this an enjoyable visit for their guests. After our visit we... More

The best part was the dog sled ride!!! They did educate us on what true dog sled is like, what we see in the movies, not so much...but they did have some movie dogs there, so my kids loved it! The gift shop was lacking....a lot, they miss the boat there, but the trip was great!!

My grandchildren loved going to this tour. It included a visit to the dog kennels, a wheeled-car tour in the woods, and cuddling with puppies.

My wife and I went to Alaska this past summer and spent two days in Seward. Although not originally on our plan, we decided to visit the IdidaRide Sled Dog Tour on our last day in Seward (after we went ziplining). The two-hour tour allowed us to see about a hundred sled dogs, pet and hold some 3 week old... More

What a cool experience to see these dogs, visit this place and hear the history of this family and the Ididarod race. I do wish when we received our confirmation that they had written the actual addresses of where to meet. It was a little unclear. Our bus guide Elyssa was super and so was the young lady who gave...

Very interesting experience, would recommend it. I was a little bothered by the dog's reactions to the handler/guide (they seemed scared) but they seemed to enjoy the run when they were out there. Interesting to see first hand and would recommend it to others who enjoy learning about the dogs and seeing the kennel firsthand.

The tour was very interesting and educational. Our guide, Meredith Mapes, was outstanding explaining all the insights of the sled dogs and the races. She went through all our doubts and misconceptions in a very professional and witty manner! We very much enjoyed her tour! It was excellent. It was also lovely to see the tiny puppies! The final sled... More

We had the best time at Seavey's Ididaride! Our guide, Meredith, was super friendly and knowledgeable. The dog were excited and fun to meet. Learning about everything that goes in to being an Ididarod musher was very interesting. And of course the best part was snuggling puppies! Was totally amazed that the dogs pulled our sled so easily and that... More

I had made advance reservations for this activity. We arrived at 11:30 am. We had a 25 foot RV so my husband had to park it out front with other rv's. He had plenty of room to back it into place. We checked in with the staff and were told to wait under the canopy. We learned so much about... More
