The end of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race beckons visitors from across the globe in March each year as this small gold rush community comes alive with festivities. Nome streets are filled with fans who come out early in the morning to welcome the mushers competing in the race as they finish under the famous burled arch.
A quick one-hour and 13-minute flight from Anchorage on our Lear Jet 45, our passengers can get to the Iditarod celebrations quicker than a commercial flight. Plus, you’ll have a little more room for packing your parka to stay warm while awaiting the finishers.
Also not to be missed is time spent crabbing. Adventurous travelers can check with the Nome Convention & Visitors Bureau to see if they can tag along with local crabbers to check their pots. Norton Sound king crab is highly sought after in the winter and can be pulled almost daily around Iditarod time. Local seafood house and bakery Pingo also often utilizes a fresh crab catch in its dishes.
