The 2011 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog race starts March 5th in Anchorage. Our packages generally start on March 3, to make sure that flight and weather delays don't cause you to miss the start of the race.

All of our packages are custom, so after the start in Anchorage and the restart in Willow, there are lots of possible ways we can customize your trip. Here is a summary of some of the activities, destinations and their dates:

March 1 - March 4: Anchorage for the start of the race, the start banquet, and other activities in and around Anchorage.
March 5: The race starts in downtown Anchorage on Saturday morning.

March 6:  Today is the Iditarod re-start, when the mushers leave Willow for Nome. You'll be there for the re-start on Sunday, and in the evening head off to the town of Talkeetna for the night.

March 7:  On Monday morning, you'll fly to the Rainy Pass Checkpoint. Guests often spot teams along the trail from the air. You'll spend the day at one of the most important checkpoints from the standpoint of race strategy.  You'll return to Talkeetna this evening.

March 8:  From here, many packages diverge. The hard core race fans will continue on the trail traveling between checkpoints by air, all the way to Nome. Others will head off to enjoy the hospitality of some of the small inns that we work with, before heading to Nome for the finish of the race. Others will change gears, and head off on a northern lights viewing adventure.

March 9-13: Some guests head out to some of the more remote checkpoints, or take time in Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula.

March 14-17: Those guests who stay for the end of the race will head to Nome for the finish, and return home on Wednesday night or Thursday.
