Join us to explore the Seward Peninsula by Bike. Though not connected to the rest of Alaska by road, Nome offers 350 miles of gravel roads to explore.

Most of the area around Nome is Arctic Tundra, characterized by low shrubs, mosses, sedges, and lichens blanketing the mountainsides and valleys. There are no trees near Nome, and just a few in the area, creating long distance views all around.

Nome is home to an abundance of wildlife, including moose, bear, and muskox traversing the tundra and thousands of migrating birds overhead. Over 160 species of migratory birds transit the area, with August being a particularly good time to view many on their south-bound journey.

Nome is also the home to the headquarters of the Bering Land Bridge National Preserve, with a long history of human habitation. From a subsistence lifestyle to music and art, Alaska Native culture is vibrant in Nome. In addition, the gold rush of 1900 contributed to Nome’s colorful history, with many types of gold mining still occurring to this day.

The Bike Nome trip is based around days cycling through the tundra landscape. Throughout the trip, we work with local businesses, restaurants, and residents to include additional activities and experiences to create an unforgettable experience for visitors to this unique place.
