The Deal

The 2-mile wheeled sled ride takes visitors through the base of Resurrection Mountain and along Box Canyon Creek as guides spin stories about raising and racing the dogs. Afterwards, the guides lead a humorous, behind-the-scene tours of the Seavey family kennel.

Seavey's Ididaride Sled Dog Tours

The Seavey family is synonymous with dogsledding. They've raised sled dogs for three generations—nurturing and training the canines until their legs turn into blurs of speed and power capable of traveling more than 100 miles per day. The decades of hard work have certainly paid off. Today, the family counts six human Iditarod racers and more than 100 champion sled dogs amongst their ranks. Dan Seavey, the man who started it all, was even inducted into the Iditarod Hall of Fame.

Seavey's Ididaride Sled Dog Tours let the general public peak behind the dog-sledding curtain, tour the kennels, and mush these impressive canines first hand. In winter months, the trainers and their dogs take visitors on sled rides past the Resurrection River and right to Exit Glacier. During summer, helicopters transport visitors up to the top of the glacier, where they meet the dogs and learn to drive sleds for themselves. Alternatively, the dogs can pull a wheeled sled along Box Canyon Creek, as guides spin stories of Iditarod races and the sled dogs rolls their eyes because they've heard it all before. Whatever the tour, the Seaveys go out of their way to make people feel welcome; they even rent out a cabin for overnight stays.

Great morning with the dogs and pups. Our daughters said it was one of the best things we did in AK.

Amazing adventure! I was at the Seward camp and had an fantastic time! You can tell everyone that works there is loves what they do and the dogs come first. It was fascinating to see what all goes into a Iditarod race and how the dogs are trained. The 2-mile ride with the dogs pulling the 'sled' was the major highlight...incredible!
