Getting There

The Preserve
The preserve is vast and access is limited; there are no roads that lead directly into it. During the summer months access is available by bush plane, small boat, or on foot. Review the list of plane operators (PDF - 46.7 KB) permitted to land in the preserve. Winter access is primarily by snowmobile, bush planes on skis, or dog sleds.

Nome Offices
The administrative office and visitor center for Bering Land Bridge National Preserve are located on the First Floor of the Sitnasuak Building on Front Street in Nome, Alaska. Nome is not on the road system so access to the town is primarily through commercial airlines. The visitor center has limited exhibits about the preserve, films, and offers programs year round.

A small road system extends to the area around Nome, and rental cars are available. The preserve is only accessible by the methods listed above. There is no road access to the preserve from Nome.
