Iditarod Chase the Race Day Tour - Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Departs from/Returns to: Anchorage
Duration: 7-8 hours
Cost: TBD 

Join K2 Aviation to “Chase the Race” up the Iditarod Trail to the 7th checkpoint at Rainy Pass Lodge. Departing from Anchorage the morning of Monday March 3, 2014, we will pick up the trail near the Skwentna checkpoint and follow it as it climbs to Finger Lake, then up the Happy River Steps to the Rainy Pass Check Point at Puntilla Lake.

View the spectacular and rugged scenery and spot teams making their way up the trail to the checkpoint.This unique look at the race will put you in the middle of the action as mushers and their teams arrive and prepare to cross the Alaska Range through Rainy Pass then exit down through the treacherous Dalzell Gorge. Ample time is allotted to take in the sights and enjoy a home style meal at Rainy Pass Lodge.

Though not running in the race, you will have to endure the elements during your stay on the ground, making appropriate winter gear a requirement. Dress warmly and in multiple layers; hat and gloves, jacket and warm boots suitable for standing outside in freezing temperatures.

Departing the checkpoint at around 4:00 p.m., we will head for Anchorage, once again enjoying from above the view of the Iditarod Trail and what has been called “The Last Great Race on Earth.
