Your "Real Alaska Tour" begins at the Seward Rail Depot, near the small boat harbor. We'll start by touring historic downtown Seward, one of the oldest communities in Alaska, where you'll see firsthand 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 we travel to beautiful Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. Here, 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 it's time to 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'll enjoy VIP status on the 1.5 hour Wilderness Sled Dog Ride and Tour.
At the end of the day, your driver will return you to your hotel or the Railroad Depot. This tour is fully guided by life-long Alaskans and will be one of your most memorable experiences in The Last Frontier!
