Mush the 2017 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.

Fifty-odd dogs outdoors in halved-50 gallon drums. Add an 800 lb sled plus 10 people and you get pulled around a dirt course. Training for the dogs but the human pleasure quotient is going to be highest among children and sled-dog racing fans. Those outside...More

Our group of 11 had a blast on this tour! Our ride was fun. The tour was educational and engaging. Our guide really knew the Seavey's kennels and answered all our questions! Holding the puppies always makes us happy as well!

A fun place to visit and see some of the dogs that compete in dog sled races. Also hold some adorable puppies. For some real fun you get to ride behind the dogs in a sled.

The 1 mile hike to Exit glacier is partially paved, some gravel and some dirt. It's fairly easy...uphill some, but not too steep. No footbridges, but you have to step across a couple of small creeks/streams.
