Your adventure begins with a 2-mile wheeled dog sled ride. Feel the power, excitement and energy of amazing sled dogs as they are harnessed to comfortable wheeled sleds on this hour and a half dog sled tour.  Mush through the Seward Alaska wilderness to the base of Resurrection Mountain and along Box Canyon Creek.  Your guide will explain how they train and steer the dogs, and share stories from the trail.

Upon return to the kennel, tour the beautiful kennel facilities, laugh as a guest is dressed up as an Iditarod musher and cuddle adorable husky puppies.  The guides offer a delightfully humorous, behind-the-scenes look at the Seavey family’s training for the most demanding race on earth.

Guaranteed to be one of the highlights of your vacation, this tour was chosen as one of Alaska's Top Twenty Attractions, and is a must-do for all visitors to the Greatland.
