Once the snow melts in the late Spring, the wildflowers begin to bloom dotting the tundra with awesome color. The birds will begin nesting and their song will wake up the tundra and boreal forest. Brant (Brent) Geese and Willow Ptarmigans are making their nests on the rocky shorelines of Nome. The ice seals will pup on the shores of the Seward Peninsula in the early spring. Perhaps you may catch a glimpse of a Barren Ground Grizzly Bear as they wake from their slumber!

By July, the rivers fill up with Salmon, Grayling, Northern Pike, White Fish and Dolly Varden Trout. Now is your opportunity to take an eco-tour on the boat to the favorite fishing holes. Or maybe try out seine fishing. Learn Eskimo subsistence salmon preservation. Tom and BJ will teach you how to cut, smoke and dry salmon in preparation for the long months of the Alaskan Winters.

In August, the Tundra will bring forth the harvest of low bush Blueberries. The night sky will display the dancing lights of the aurora borealis as you sit around the campfire. Take a 4-wheeler trip to see the Moose and the Muskox over the ridge. While you are there check out the train to nowhere and the giant skeletons of the gold dredging machines of Nome’s past. Stop by the ocean to see the seals and the Beluga Whale. Later in the Fall, go out on the ocean to set a crab pot if the conditions are right.

As the snow begins to blanket the earth, now it is time to take the snow machines out for a spin! Pass by the towering mountains, visit the hot springs as you cross the frozen rivers. You may be able to go ice-fishing if the ice is deep enough. As March comes around, you can be here in Nome for the exciting finish of the Iditarod Dog-Sled Race!
