Iditarod Race Adventures

An unforgettable way to view the Last Great Race!

The ‘Last Great Race’ starts in Anchorage, finishes in Nome, and is the last great race! This historic race, full of thrills and adventure, winds its way over 1,000 miles through the old trade, dog sled trade routes and ghost towns of remote Alaska.

The Iditarod is unique as it is one of the only races that allows its visitors to get up close and personal with the races and the event itself, also allowing for interaction and participation in the form of helping with the race, like bedding the dogs, feeding them and helping the racers through the checkpoints.

Since 1994, Alaska Bush Safari Co. has been the premier leader in Both Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race tours as well as exclusive Alaskan Adventure tours. We use ski equipped bush planes to take you out along the trail following the racers and stopping at the checkpoints to watch up close as it is happening all around you.

Our tours, truly classic safari type expeditions follow the pace of the sled dog race while still allowing the guest to get the feel and detailed charm of the people that make up remote Alaska.

While on an Iditarod adventure with Alaska Bush Safari Co. tour, you will have the opportunity to participate in many different activities like the hands on experience of mushing your own dog sled, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, driving your own snow machine, er… I mean snow mobile for the ‘chechakos’… and try your hand at some ice fishing too!

You get to meet rural Alaskan residents such as Eskimo village residents, artists and the subsistence lifestyle that is quickly vanishing.

And of course flight seeing everyday from your private plane!
