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.

Hollywood doesn't do it justice!

We loved the reality of it all. Dan Seavey drove our cart and I got to stand on the back with him. The sounds, the smells, the gear they use--it's all REAL. Very cool. We... read more

We loved the reality of it all. Dan Seavey drove our cart and I got to stand on the back with him. The sounds, the smells, the gear they use--it's all REAL. Very cool. We stayed in an Abode Well King Cabin and loved the architecture. Definitely the snazziest of the cabins we stayed at on this trip. Don't think... More

My husband enjoyed this more than I did. I found our guide to be a bit hap hazard and not the most knowledgeable in answering questions. But it was a fun experience to ride in the cart and see the set of up how they house the dogs and see the sleds, etc.

We enjoyed seeing the dogs and going on the sled ride. At the end you can hold the puppies. They also have a brief presentation, mostly just walking around a shed with the trophy and sled in it. Several people on our tour were asking "is it over?","Is that it?" It would be nice if they had a video presentation... More

This was on our Alaskan bucket list. We booked our tour on line and requested to be picked up in Seward Hotel at a designated time. The shuttle arrived on time and our driver was nice and friendly. The dogs do not look like the Hollywood version of sled dogs. The dogs were lean and raring to go. Once they... More

I loved this tour!! One of my favorite things on our trip to AK!! Our tour guide works there and was super familiar with everything that goes into running and training sled dogs and answered every question that came her way. I was always nervous to see if the dog were mistreated, but they were so happy and well fed... More

Not sure I want to visit during the winter to actually sled on snow but the ride on wheels was a close approximation. Enjoyed playing with the pups. Driver (Todd) took us to Exit Glacier for a nice hike. Had many excellent stories to keep us entertained and informed.

Learned the Seavey family history of competing in the Iditarod. Took a ride on a wheeled sled pulled by 16 dogs. Listened to a talk on the preparation and gear required to enter in the race and to protect the musher and the dogs from freezing temperatures. Visited and got to hold the smallest of sled dog puppies (4 weeks... More

Great time. We were met at the train station by Todd who was our informative and helpful tour guide. We went to see the sled dogs first. Fun time there being pulled by the dogs in a summertime sled. Interesting to see and learn about the dogs and we even got to hold some puppies. We then went to a... More

Crossing this off our bucket list! We had a blast! Everyone should experience this at least once in their lifetime!!! A short helicopter ride up was also amazing!

The tour included a brief history of the Iditarod, race route and sled dog breeding. The dogs did not look like the Hollywood version of sled dogs. They were lean, muscular and full of energy. We went on a ride through the woods with the sled dogs pulling our cart (remember to wear bug spray). Our musher, Meredith, had a... More
