Kayla_C, Jul 2022
Had an amazing time! All of the staff and mushers were so nice and knowledgeable. The dogs were awesome and so smart! We learned so much about dog mushing. I would definitely recommend this even in the summer.
Worth the trip!
Natalia_T, Jul 2022
Wonderful experience. Staff was fantastic and the dogs were absolutely amazing! To say that cuddling with the puppies was a beautiful experience would be an understatement 💗 💕
Quality your not to be missed
Jeff_N, Jun 2022
This was one of our favorite tours on our Alaska cruise. The actual ride is about 25 minutes. You see the area the dogs are kept and they explain everything possible. We held puppies and were given an opportunity to put on the gear necessary to compete in an Iditarod. Family business that takes pride in what they do. Bring bug spray!

Great experience! We learned so much and really enjoyed spending time with the dogs and puppies.
Patricia_C, Jun 2022
Attended this tour with my family ranging in age from 16 to 72. We all had a great time with the dogs and puppies. The history and knowledge shared was awesome.
Super fun experience!
Elizabeth_L, May 2022
This was such a blast! The dog sled (on wheels) ride was fun, but I especially loved being able to interact with the dogs and puppies. All the information about the Iditarod was fascinating. I traveled as a solo adult and would especially recommend this for families, though I had a blast and would advise any traveler to stop by if you have spare time in Seward.
Claudia_C, Sep 2021
We love this tour. Our guide and driver was Doug very nice person. I recommend this tour. The dogs were very friendly and adorable. Family has a good record with the business. Please do the tour when season start all over again.

Great family business and staff! Learn all about the dogs and ride.. wish I could see them take off one year! Heard tour was great and was not disappointed.
Must go activity!
Jillian_R, Sep 2021
Fun to step into a world literally driven by dogs! Very organized, good amount of time between going for a ride and education. Extremely knowledgeable guides too. A must do activity !
Highly recommend!
Susan_G, Sep 2021
This is a professional-family oriented activity. We learned about Alaskan huskies, their pups, their high protein meals and their training! The Seavey family has won the Iditarod off and on for several generations! The sled ride was fun and the musher informative on the ride! Good luck in this year’s race!
Jamison_G, Aug 2021
This was a last min spurt of the moment adventure and it was totally worth it! The staff was super friendly and the experience was amazing! Got to pet the dogs and hold days old puppies! Met Mitch Seavy too! Highly recommend this!!
