This scenic journey begins in Anchorage with the Alaska Railroad as it takes you along Cook Inlet and into the glacier filled Kenai Mountains. In Seward you will be met at the rail depot by a member of the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race‘s original racing family, the Seavey’s, for a fun-filled day of sightseeing. Typically you first travel to 2017 Iditarod champion Mitch Seavey’s sled dog kennel where you can meet famous dogs, cuddle adorable puppies, dress up as an Iditarod musher, and hear stories about the 1,000-mile race. Afterwards take in the spectacular Alaskan wilderness as you mush for two miles on a wheeled cart with an Iditarod competitor. After a hearty lunch at the Resurrection Bay Roadhouse continue to Exit Glacier and learn about the history of Seward. Enjoy a short walk along a nature trail to the face of the glacier. In the end, tour the little town of Seward and its sights and see the effects of the 1964 earthquake. Following your tour, you will re-board the Alaska Railroad, returning to Anchorage.
