They have an impressive facility where the sled dogs get their weight training when there is no snow by pulling the sleds on wheels along the paths. Very educational. It was a bit shocking to see so many sled dogs chained up, but we were...More

This is one of those great unusual things that make for great stories well after your trip. The dogs are wonderful and excited to pull the wheeled cart around the 2 1/2 mile course. The guides, including Danny Seavey, son of 2017 Ididarod winner Mitch...More

Despite a little rain, we had a fantastic experience with Seavey's. We did the 1.5 hour tour and ride and I'd highly recommend it to anyone. Meeting the dogs, along with the puppies was the highlight for our teenage daughters. The ride was a blast...More

This turned out to be different than we expected, in a good way. Our initial thought was that they dogs would be the big furry huskies, so was great to learn about the real sled dogs and what they are like. Loved how close we...More

Animal lovers, you must visit! Honestly, I wasn't sure I was going to like this. Dogs pulling us in a sled made me a bit uncomfortable, like I was making them work too hard. Wrong! These dogs LOVE to run and pull the sled! The...More

The program was informative. And it was interesting to see up close the sled and the clothing worn by the mushers as well as some protections for the dogs. The hard part was seeing where and how the dogs lived. They are all on short...More

We are 79, in good health, want to visit you in July--do you have a whole package including a place to stay along with the sled dog tour and seeing the puppies?

We are pressed for time. Can we come by and meet the sled dogs and the Seaveys. We would love to take the helicopter up and ride on the sled, I just don't think we can fit it in. Our schedule is somewhat tight. But I am a really big fan and would love to meet the dogs.

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
What is the surface of the 1 mile hike to glacier.... gravel, paved, wood? and is the hike uphill? are there any footbridges over canyons or crevices?

Response from 123Beachy | Reviewed this property |
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.
