Congratulations to Mitch Seavey and his team for winning the 2017 Iditarod in record-breaking time.
Having a great time with our Iditarod Finish & Northern Lights Tour group in Nome, with guests from as far as Australia, Scotland, Florida and New Hampshire.
Enjoy the Iditarod race action up close with Wild Alaska Travel! Here, Nicholas Petit and his team approach the finish line in third place.
Musher and dogs forge an amazing bond during their 1,000 mile race across some of Alaska’s most rugged terrain. Here, Aliy Zirkle and one of her lead dogs show their affection for each other at the finish line in Nome.
Yukon musher Michelle Phillips drives her team through jumbled sea ice on the Iditarod trail leading out of the village of Elim and into Norton Bay.
Having fun exploring Nome’s backcountry by snowmachine.
It’s always special to be face to face with a herd of muskoxen.
As the frontrunners in the Wild Alaska Travel guest enjoying a spectacular sunset over the Bering Sea.Iditarod race up along the Bering Sea coast, our group checked out Glen LeBaron’s suction dredge ‘Miss Nomer’ and met some of the miners diving for hours in the dark and subzero water temperatures looking for gold on the sea floor of the Bering Sea.
What an awesome group to travel with!
Aerial view of the Bering Sea coast near Safety Sound. The Safety checkpoint is visible on the far left, halfway up, with the Iditarod trail following the coast towards White Mountain.
Undeterred by windy and cold conditions, our group rode snowmachines to the last Iditarod checkpoint in Safety, and on to ‘The Last Train to Nowhere’.
No conditions are too tough for this group that is up for any adventure!
At ‘The Last Train To Nowhere’. If you ride a snowmachine for over 30 miles in windy, cold conditions and in poor visibility, and still have a smile, you must have a good time!
It’s always a highlight for my Iditarod Finish Tour group to mush their own team of dogs across the tundra near Nome.
