They come in from the night, impossibly alert and strong after so long a race. They rush down the trail at speed, their hot breath punching dense clouds into the freezing sub-arctic air of the Bering Sea. Suddenly the dogs are running down Front Street, faster. When they see who it is, people start going crazy in the crowd. Dallas Seavey. For the win. Again.
For every Alaskan, and us at Salmon Berry in particular, every Iditarod finish is an awesome experience. But when our friend Dallas Seavey won we just couldn’t stop celebrating. And when he stood atop the winner's podium with lead dogs Diesel and Guinness we all went a little crazy with joy.
But Dallas wasn’t through. He had history to make.
He won again. And again. And all along Salmon Berry has been the exclusive provider of sled dog racing experiences with his champion racing teams.
This year’s Ultimate Iditarod carries on in this fine tradition. And back by popular demand, there’s lots of time with our friends at Seavey Racing as featured in an article from the Chicago Tribune about the experience.
We offer a signature Iditarod tour package:
Then we’ll experience both the ceremonial and actual race starts. Both these events are festive and action-packed.
But neither as great as flying out to a remote race checkpoint to see the teams racing through.
Book early. Space is limited. We also offer extensions of this trip for aurora viewing and remote winter experiences.
