Alaska Dog Sledding Tours & Cabins
COVID-19 Update July 30: WE’RE OPEN!
The Wilderness Dog Sled Ride and Tour and Abode Well Cabins in Seward are open with four tours daily. Face masks are required, and group sizes are being kept <25% of capacity, but due to the size of a dog sled, be aware that social distancing is not possible throughout the tour. Alaska is open to out-of-state travel with testing requirements outlined here https://covid19.alaska.gov/travelers/. Glacier mushing tours are running from the Girdwood location only. We recommend guests use the facilities before arrival, we do not have running water at all locations. We are not doing mid-stay room service at cabins, but have increased our cleaning protocols between stays.
What we do
The Seavey family arrived in Alaska four years after statehood, and moved to the Seward homestead in the aftermath of the great Alaska Earthquake. Over the course of 56 years and four generations, they’ve become the preeminent mushing family, winning seven Iditarod races and Mitch holds the Iditarod speed record of 8 days 3 hours 40 minutes and 13 seconds to cover 1049 miles by dog team.
For the past 28 years, the Seaveys have invited guests to visit their homestead during the off season, providing summer dog sled rides and kennel tours to the public to keep the pups in shape and out of trouble. Check out the tours, and you’ll be helping train the next Iditarod champions!
