Nome Iditarod Tour


We’ve all heard of the world-famous Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race and many have even seen the exciting start of this grueling race from bustling downtown Anchorage but only those seeking a truly unique and authentic Alaska adventure venture north to Nome for the conclusion of this 1,049-mile trek. Experience the true spirit of this great race with the people of Nome. Your local guide Richard Benevelle, the Mayor of Nome, will introduce you to the people that call this frontier home, the lure of this remote destination, and the excitement that is the ‘Mardi Gras of the North.’
