First, take in the fascinating history and breathtaking beauty as your guide shows you the sights of Seward, known as “the Gateway to Alaska” and “Mile 0″ of the Iditarod Trail. See first-hand the effects of the 1964 Earthquake and stand in awe of the mountain that is home to the second oldest foot race in the United States.
Then, head out to Exit Glacier in the Kenai Fjords National Park. A short walk along the nature trail takes you to the face of the glacial ice. Watch for mountain goats, moose or bear on the mountainside. During the salmon runs, see salmon swimming upstream to spawn. A hearty lunch will be served at nearby Resurrection Roadhouse before you travel to the Seavey homestead and experience IdidaRide’s 1.5 hour Wilderness Dog Sled Ride and Tour. At the end of this fun-filled day, your driver will return you to your hotel, cruise ship or the Alaska Railroad depot. Tour is fully guided by a long-time Alaskan, and all expenses are included. 11:05am. to 5:15pm. Schedule is designed to work with the 11:05am – 6pm Alaska Railroad schedule.
