Our Real Alaska tour is a great way to see the beautiful and historic Seward in a day, especially for those without personal transportation.
Your guide will begin by showing you the sights of Seward, Alaska, known as “the Gateway to Alaska” and “Mile 0″ of the Iditarod Trail. Seward resides at the base of Mt. Marathon, the setting for the second oldest foot race in the United States, and still contains evidence of the great 1964 Earthquake.
Afterwards your guide will take you to Exit Glacier, a frozen river spilling out of the Kenai Fjords National Park. A short walk on the nature trail takes you to the face of the glacial ice. Along the way, keep a watch for mountain goats, moose, or bear that live in the forested mountains.
Salmon spawn during the summer months, meaning they swim upstream to reproduce. You’ll be able to watch them navigate a channel on the way to their spawning grounds.
Also included is a hearty lunch at a local restaurant to nourish you before you embark on the Ididaride’s 1.5 hour Wilderness Dog Sled Ride and Tour, in which you’ll mush champion sled dogs and hold puppies.
The day’s adventures end with your driver returning you to your hotel, cruise shop, or the Alaska Railroad depot. All expenses are included in the tour price.
