Setting sail from Nome

Only accessible by air or sea, the remote Alaskan town of Nome sits overlooking the Bering Strait, surrounded by miles of largely featureless tundra. This was once a boomtown; the discovery of easily extractable gold in 1898 led to a gold rush, and you can still see the remnants of the mining industry which thrived here. The gold hasn't completely dried up, so many still come here to try and find their fortune, while other visitors are drawn to Nome by the varied bird life and intriguing Iñupiat culture.
