Nome, Alaska Cruise Port
Nome gained its popularity during the Gold Rush era when the Three Lucky Swedes were the first to discover gold in Nome’s Anvil Creek, and the search for gold is still active in Nome. Situated on the edge of the Bering Strait and the southwest side of the Seward Peninsula, this small town has a vibrant Eskimo culture and some of the best Eskimo dancing in Alaska. The breathtaking golden hills that surround Nome are home to many species of waterfowl, bears, musk, ox, caribou and other wildlife. There is also an abundance of spawning salmon swimming up the streams. With its brisk summer temperatures averaging in the mid 50s and perfectly clear skies, Nome is a wonderful place for bird lovers and hikers.
