GLOBUS 2021: Alaska's Iditarod with Fairbanks (AIQ)

11 Day Tour from Fairbanks to Anchorage

Come gee! Come haw! Come out for Alaska's best known sporting event. 'Alaska's Last Great Race' takes place every March as mushers bark commands to teams of sled dogs in hopes of being the first to cross 1,000 treacherous miles of frozen, rugged terrain. On this thrill-filled Alaska vacation, you'll stop by Iditarod headquarters, visit the kennels of four-time Iditarod Champion Martin Buser, and attend the annual Mushers Banquet where you can meet, mingle, and even witness the draw for starting positions. Cheer on your favorite mushers at the ceremonial start of the race in Anchorage and again at the official restart in the quaint community of Willow. Of course, the Siberian Husky isn't the only animal you'll see on this tour of Alaska. Have your camera ready for moose, musk ox, and more as you enjoy visits to Anchorage's renowned wildlife centers and the Girdwood ski resort where you can put your own paws in the snow.

Complement 'Alaska's Great Race' with 'The Greatest Light Show on Earth' when you add Fairbanks & the Northern Lights to your Alaska tour. Two opportunities to witness the ethereal green glow of the amazing aurora borealis, a ride on the world-famous Alaska Railroad, and leisure time in outdoorsy Anchorage present the perfect kickstart to your Iditarod vacation.
