Nome and the Bering Land Bridge

4 Days/3 Nights Roundtrip Anchorage

Price from$2,742

Nome, Alaska, situated near the Arctic Circle on the Bering Sea coastline in Alaska's Far North started life as a 'wild west' tent city during the Alaska Gold Rush and still retains some of the 'period atmosphere' today. Self-drive visitors can experience the thrill of exploring Alaska's "last frontier" where gold prospectors can still be seen working sluice boxes on Nome's beaches. Around the world, Nome is also famous as the finish line for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, the epic 1,000-mile winter dog sledding race across Alaska from Anchorage. And with round-the-clock daylight during the summer, you can set your own schedule for wildlife viewing and other.
