IdidaRide Sled Dog Real Alaska Tour
Tour Price $129.00
Your six-hour "Real Alaska Tour" begins at the Seward rail depot near the small boat harbor at 11:05am. Begin by touring historic downtown Seward, one of the oldest communities in Alaska, where you will see first hand the effects of the 1964 earthquake. Stand in awe of Mount Marathon, home of the second oldest foot race in the United States, then visit the famous "Mile 0" of the Iditarod trail, and learn why Seward was the "Gateway to Alaska". Next, watch for moose, bear, mountain goats and spawning salmon as you travel to beautiful Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park, where a short walk on a nature trail will take you right to the face of the glacier! Your guides will point out native flora, help you spot wildlife, and explain the rapid melting of the glacier. Then enjoy local seafood or one of many excellent entrees at the Resurrection Roadhouse, a beautiful restaurant nestled in the shadow of awe-inspiring mountains.
Top off your day with a visit to Seavey's Iditarod Racing Kennel, where you will enjoy VIP status on the 1 1/2 Hour Wilderness Sled Dog Ride and Tour. At the end of the day, your driver will return you to your hotel, cruise ship, or the Railroad depot. This tour is fully guided by life-long Alaskans, and price includes all transportation, fees, tickets, and meals. Guide gratuities are not included. Tour runs from 11:05am-5:15pm daily.
Please note this tour involves a short walk to Exit Glacier, and boarding the bus several times. The bus does not have a wheelchair lift, but wheelchair users may take the tour provided they can board the bus on foot.
