Iditarod, Anvik, Ruby, Cripple, Nome - the names alone conjure up images of a Jack London adventure novel. For over a thousand miles, the Iditarod trail winds its way from Anchorage to Nome through some of the most rugged, remote, and magnificent country on earth.
Every year, beginning the first Saturday in March, over fifty dog teams race along the Iditarod trail, The Last Great Race. Conditions along the trail can vary from surprisingly spring-like weather to interior Alaska temperatures of -30 degrees Fahrenheit with coastal blizzards that bring winds of up to 60 miles an hour.
The trail crosses the austere beauty of the Alaska Range into the remote interior of Alaska, passing through several native villages separated by hundreds of miles of wilderness.
Talkeetna Air Taxi offers the unique adventure of a lifetime in aerial support for the mushers, journalists, film crews, and adventurous tourists chasing the race from its start all the way to the finish line in Nome.
TAT offers custom one to ten day trips, tailored to individual schedules. Our Cessna and DeHavilland aircraft are equipped with wheel/skis, personal intercom systems, and a window for everyone. Each day is an adventure as well as a learning and cultural experience. Some nights may even be spent with a native family or in the local school.
