Fifty-odd dogs outdoors in halved-50 gallon drums. Add an 800 lb sled plus 10 people and you get pulled around a dirt course. Training for the dogs but the human pleasure quotient is going to be highest among children and sled-dog racing fans. Those outside...More

Our group of 11 had a blast on this tour! Our ride was fun. The tour was educational and engaging. Our guide really knew the Seavey's kennels and answered all our questions! Holding the puppies always makes us happy as well!

It is not guaranteed that you will meet the Seavey's while at their ground tour base in Seward, also they do not offer the helicopter tour in Seward, they offer that out of Girdwood, AK but they don't offer the ground tour... 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.
