Voice of Travelers to Nome

Visit to watch Iditarod in Nome

I am Kennedy from Belgium. Last winter I flew to Nome to watch the incredible Iditarod finish, snowmobile tours and seeing musicox and reindeer. I took a break from work and a friend suggested visiting Nome as a good place to relax. I bought a ticket to Nome online after a referral from a friend. Purchasing the ticket online was cheaper compared to visiting the travel agents who sold their ticket more expensive compared to the online ticket. When purchasing a ticket to Nome, it is advisable to purchase your ticket weeks prior to your departure, ticket are cheaper during this period. I chose to travel using Alaska Airlines who offered 5% off their ticket for any one attending the Iditarod. The travel experience and staying in Nome was awesome. I came back rejuvenated and I am on course to achieve all the goals set by my employer.
