Only 1,150 miles to go
Add caption
Arguably Alaska's most popular event on the calendar, the Iditarod is a dog sled race from the city of Anchorage to the remote town of Nome, over 1,000 miles (1,609km) of dangerous, dramatic terrain and some of the most severe weather conditions on the planet. Touted by locals as the last great race left on Earth, the event sees over one hundred participants from around the globe partake in this annual endurance test that lasts anywhere between eight and 15 days. Participants will be subjected to temperatures of -100°F (-75°C), white-outs, and blizzards, although the experience of racing snow dogs on the the back of a sled through gorgeous mountain scenery, frozen lakes and dense forests under the guidance of the Northern Lights makes this an experience unlike anything else.
