Dog Sledding, also called mushing

Dog Sledding, also called mushing, is a famous and favorite truly Alaskan activity. Seward, Alaska is home to a family of famous dog mushers! To help keep their dogs trained year round, they offer dog sledding to visitors! This unique insight into to dog mushing, by the Seavey family is extremely special. Land based, using wheeled sleds designed by Iditarod Race Winner Mitch Seavey, you’ll get to tour the kennel, learn about the equipment used during the race, try some of it on yourself, and go for a ride being pulled by a team of dogs!! There’s truly nothing like it!! Located north of our cabins, about 6 miles away. Be sure to give yourself time to experience some heavenly relaxation in our beautiful and very special cabins just south of Seward Alaska, on the shores of Resurrection Bay, on the Kenai Peninsula, with spectacular wildlife and scenery surrounding them.

Ididaride is a small locally owned family company that specializes in running the Iditarod race in the winter. During the Summer Season, they offer dog sledding tours on wheeled sleds, that include an overview of the Iditarod race. The Seavey family has been involved with the Iditarod race from its inception; they have 3 generations of mushers. Mitch won the race in 2004! You’ll learn a lot and have a great time! This is a very affordable tour and a must do for all dog lovers! 6 tour times daily starting at 8:30 a.m.

Combine this with your trip to Exit Glacier for a nice day. Pack a picnic or lunch at one of the places on Exit Glacier/Herman Lerier Road. In the Off-Season Winter tours may be available at their Seward and Sterling Locations, (Sterling can make for a nice day trip from Seward)
