Setting sail from Nome

Only accessible by air or sea, the remote Alaskan town of Nome sits overlooking the Bering Strait, surrounded by miles of largely featureless tundra. This was once a boomtown; the discovery of easily extractable gold in 1898 led to a gold rush, and you can still see the remnants of the mining industry which thrived here. The gold hasn't completely dried up, so many still come here to try and find their fortune, while other visitors are drawn to Nome by the varied bird life and intriguing Iñupiat culture.

Arriving in Seward

The tiny city of Seward, home to just 3,000 people, enjoys a spectacular setting on the edge of Resurrection Bay, on Alaska's southern coast. Surrounded by the mountains and forests of the Kenai Fjords National Park, it's a great base for exploring the Harding Ice Field and the stunning scenery of the Kenai Peninsula. It's also a hub for activities including sea kayaking, birding and whale watching, and has a pleasant downtown area with plenty of shops and good quality restaurants. If you have time, the excellent Alaska Sealife Centre is also well worth a visit.

Don't miss

Kenai Fjords National Park is Alaska in one bite – fantastic sea life, stunning natural beauty.
