Alaska's Iditarod

The Iditarod, Alaska’s best-known sporting event, is the focus of this fabulous Alaska winter tour. Meet four-time Iditarod Champion Martin Buser at his kennels—a special experience arranged by Globus—and visit the Iditarod Headquarters, where you’ll see photos, videos, and mementos of the Iditarod race. Another out-of-the-ordinary adventure included by Globus is dinner and Iditarod festivities at the Musher’s Banquet, where you’ll see the musher’s draw for starting position in the race and perhaps meet them for photos and autographs. Witness the ceremonial start of the race in Anchorage and the official restart of the race in Willow, where you can cheer on your favorite mushers as they head off into Alaska’s wilderness on this 1,049-mile journey to the finish line in Nome.

You’ll also spend time in Anchorage and at the luxurious Hotel Alyeska, located in the ski resort community of Girdwood. Here, you can enjoy a variety of activities, including skiing, snowshoeing, riding an aerial tram for breathtaking views, or simply relaxing at the hotel’s spa. For a chance to see grizzly and black bears, moose, and caribou up close, you’ll visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. At the Alaska Sealife Center, get an in-depth look above and below Alaska’s waters.

If you desire to see the Iditarod, this Alaska winter tour is an adventure not to be missed.
