Alaska Winter Tour
Everything is extreme in Alaska and the annual Iron Dog Snowmobile Race Viewing is no exception!
The Iron Dog takes place every year in February and has been dubbed the “world’s longest, toughest snowmobile race.” It’s a high-speed snowmobile race that covers more than 2,600 miles of rugged terrain through the Alaskan backcountry.
Rookies and pros alike are equally tested along this rough and tough off-road race through interior Alaska. Make no mistake; this race is not for the faint of heart. Mother nature is unforgiving in extreme, northern Alaska.
And, while the use of snowmobiles might deceptively portray this race as child's play, it is anything but. Far from it, racers are tested on their stamina, endurance, physical fitness, acclimation to the harsh Alaskan winter environment, and their machine handling and riding skills in backcountry Alaska.
Watch all of the excitement unfold from the air. Follow along as your favorite racer navigates twists, turns, rough terrains, and unstable or fresh snow conditions while avoiding avalanche areas, all while battling their competitors to become the next Iron Dog Champion.
See why snowmobile racers all over the world flock to Alaska annually to compete in this demanding, grueling race ... and why Alaska is considered the proving ground for snowmobile machines and riders.
Best of all, you can experience this uniquely Alaskan tradition while sitting comfortably in our R44 helicopter, encased in wide-angle glass windows that offer you an unobstructed bird's eye view from the air. It's the next best thing to riding along in a snowmobile yourself!
To view this race, you will depart Big Lake Airport in a private helicopter or bush airplane for aerial views of competitors as they begin their race toward the Bering Sea coastline. The flight will follow the competitors from above for photo opportunities, then circle back to the Airpark. Yentna, Skwenta, River, Denali viewing.
To make the most of your flightseeing tour, choose from any add-on option, or create a custom package. We recommend adding a nighttime stay at our remote lodge. Visitors arriving in February will have increased opportunities to view the northern lights from remote Alaskan locations.
