Northwest Alaska Experience
Experience the Untouched Arctic Regions of the Northwest Alaska
Tom offers unique ecotours and fishing trips in the Nome area. Since there are no roads from Anchorage to Nome, your Alaskan NW Adventure begins once you have arrived at the Nome airport. While you are here, check out Seward Peninsula’s history of gold-mining and dog-sledding. However, it is also home to amazing marine life such as king crabs, beluga whales and seals.
Explore the vast landscapes, solitude, winter tundra and the best river fishing you will ever want to see.
Alaskan NW Adventures Lodge is an off-the-grid subsistence camp just below the Arctic Circle. Most of all, it is a comfortable retreat in truly rustic surroundings. We promote Alaskan ecotourism to preserve our culture and environment. Subsequently, we are pleased to share our part of the world with our guests!
Tom Gray customizes each eco-tour for the time of the year and the desires of his clients. Are you interested in seeing wildlife such as an Eagle’s nest on the shores of the Niukluk River? Perhaps you would like a 4-wheeler ride on the Tundra. See a Muskox within a couple yards from the road or set a Crab Pot out on the ocean. Next fish for the coveted Red (Sockeye) Salmon or catch a rare Trophy Arctic Graying. While you are in Nome, see the Gold Dredging machines of the 1920’s and 2020’s. Visit the natural Hot Springs of the Seward Peninsula. Maybe you want to participate in the Subsistence traditions of the Native Eskimo culture.
Every Summer bring fishing opportunities for everyone, whether you are a seasoned angler or adventurous family. Each trip is unique to the traveler. Perhaps you would like to learn how to fly-fish. Have you ever tried seine fishing? Learn the art of cutting, smoking and drying the salmon in Eskimo subsistence tradition.
Experience Northwest Alaskan Salmon and Trophy Fish!
At the beginning of the freshwater fishing season there are Rainbow/ Char, King Salmon, Northern Pike and Arctic Grayling. During the mid-season, the Red (Sockeye) Salmon and Chum (Dog) Salmon come into camp and late season bring the Silver Salmon and Dolly Varden.
Your hosts Tom and BJ personally make your trip a great experience. Being raised Seward Peninsula, we know the area! Tom is your personal guide for ecotourism and fishing in the Nome area. After time with us you will take a part of our lives home with you. We will also be blessed to take a part of your life with the time spent with us.
Small Group Ecotourism and Fishing in the Nome Area
Our camp accommodates 10 people comfortably. It’s a markedly different experience to explore remote Northwest Alaska with a small group ecotour, rather than with hundreds of other travelers in Anchorage. At Northwest Adventures Camp there are no roads only boats, 4-wheelers and snow machines. The small group size allows you see see the wildlife and landscape as it was meant to be. Experience Northwest Alaska with Tom and BJ Gray and you will not be disappointed!
