Tour Overview

In the morning, depart Anchorage and fly to Nome, located on the Bering Sea. Upon arrival in Nome you will be picked up and greeted by your local Alaskan tour guide. Depending on the day of the week, you will either do a tour of just Nome and near surroundings OR you may go out to the small community of Teller as well. For either tour you will be traveling to the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve to learn about the local terrain, the flora and fauna of this Far North environment. Watch for musk ox which often can be spotted here. Take a “walk” on the arctic’s tundra and touch the permafrost. Nome’s Gold Rush history is also on display and you will have a chance to try your luck at gold panning. Complete your day in Nome with time to independently explore downtown and enjoy dinner (not included) before flying back to Anchorage.

Our Upgraded Program Includes:

* 3 and 4 star hotels (best available) wherever possible.

Please be aware the upgraded accommodations in downtown Anchorage do not have hotel shuttle services. Many of the upgraded hotels also offer guaranteed view rooms for additional cost. If you would like a specific room type, in addition to the upgraded program, please ask us about availability and cost difference.
