Mush the 2017 Iditarod champion sled dogs! Visit Seavey's IdidaRide racing kennel, where four generations of the Seavey family and 100 of the toughest dogs in the world train during the summer months. You'll be helping train their 46th Iditarod team for their 4th championship. Cuddle the adorable husky puppies, try on the gear worn when it's 40 below, and get a pawtograph from their Golden Harness winning lead dogs. Sleds with padded seats and suspension, fully covered tour, and dog themed gift shop make this the most fun you can have in Seward in the rain. Voted "Best Sled Dog Ride in Alaska" by readers of the Alaska Magazine.

Day trip from Anchorage to Seward with the family for the sled dog ride. It was raining, but the sleds have covers, so we did not get too wet. The best part is watching them hook up the dogs and of course playing with puppies!!...More

The 1 mile hike to Exit glacier is partially paved, some gravel and some dirt. It's fairly easy...uphill some, but not too steep. No footbridges, but you have to step across a couple of small creeks/streams.
