Bering Land Bridge National Preserve
Places to visit in Bering Land Bridge National Preserve
Comprised of 2.7 million acres on the Seward Peninsula in northwest Alaska, Bering Land Bridge is one of the nation's most remote national park units. With proper planning and equipment a trip into the preserve can be rewarding. As one of the least visited National Park Units, the opportunity to travel a land visited by so few can provide solitude and beauty not often available in other parts of the country.
The park headquarters for Bering Land Bridge is located in Nome, Alaska. Nome is a rural community of 3,600 residents, which is known for its gold rush history, Alaska Native cultures, and as the end of the famous Iditarod sled dog race. There is a Visitor Center on the first floor of the Sitnasauk Building on Front Street open throughout the year.
Visitors to the preserve will find themselves in the midst of natural hot springs, ancient lava flows, and the largest maar lakes in the world. The Serpentine Hot Springs is one of the most popular places to visit within the preserve.
Things to Do
Bering Land Bridge offers unparalleled opportunities to not only experience some of America's most isolated wildlands, but also the rich heritage of Alaskan Native cultures, past and present. The land can be utilized for camping, bird watching, hunting, gathering, trapping, and fishing.
