Two tours in one...too much fun! This Alaskan experience starts with an 8 mile scenic mountain ride up the historical Iditarod trail in an open air Pinzgauer. Your guide will share the rich history of the area. Stunning views and 7000’ mountain peaks surround you.

Upon arriving at Girdwood Mushing Company’s kennel you will meet Iditarod musher Nick Petit and his 4 legged athletes. Hear Nick’s Iditarod stories, and then hop aboard a sled dog cart and let Nick and his Alaskan huskies take you on a ride. Experience the strength and energy the dogs have for pulling and running.

 

After your thrilling dog cart ride, the Pinzgauers will take you to the Puppy Pavilion. Pose for photos with the puppies, Iditarod trophies, dog sleds & gear.

The tour starts with a visit to the Seavey Homestead in Seward, home to three generations of the mushing Seavey family. One of the local guides will take you on a truly Alaskan adventure. Experience the excitement and power of an Iditarod dog team as you mush two miles through spectacular Alaskan wilderness on comfortable wheeled sleds, including pausing for photos in beautiful Box Canyon.  Then cuddle with adorable Alaskan Husky puppies, dress as an Iditarod musher, and enjoy incredible stories from the trail.

Ididaride Full-Day Tour For the best way to see Seward in one day, try this tour. First, visit historic downtown Seward, one of the oldest communities in Alaska. See first hand the effects of the 1964 earthquake and stand in awe of Mt. Marathon, home of the second oldest foot race in the United States. Then visit the famous “Mile 0” of the Iditarod Trail, and learn why Seward was  once the “gateway to Alaska.” Next, watch for moose, bear, mountain goats and spawning salmon along the way to beautiful Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. Here, a short walk on a nature trail leads directly to the face of the glacier. Local guides will point out native flora, help spot wildlife, and explain the rapid melting of the glacier.  Refuel at the Resurrection Roadhouse which features fresh, local seafood or one of many other excellent entrees. The views from this beautiful restaurant are awe-inspiring. Top off your day with a visit to Seavey’s Iditarod Racing Kennel, where guests will enjoy VIP status on the Wilderness Sled Dog Ride & Tour. At the end of the day, a driver will return guests to their respective hotels, cruise ship or railroad depot.
