Experience the 2018 Iditarod with Alaska's Premier Iditarod Race Tour Company

Since 1996 AIT has been providing clients 1st rate tours of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. We were the 1st company to offer tours of the Iditarod Race and still provide the highest rated tours. We now offer 9 different tours of the race, giving you a variety of Iditarod experiences to choose from. All of our Iditarod Tours include outstanding sightseeing, adventure and the opportunity to be a volunteer in this exciting sporting event. If you have ever wanted to experience Alaska and one of the most unique and exciting sporting events in the world, our tours are for you!

Great tour companies all have one thing in common- REPEAT CLIENTS!

For 2016 we had 15 returning clients- some for their 3rd, 4th or 5th time! All of our guided tours are tailored to maximize the amount of personal contact clients have with the race teams and mushers. Our clients have the opportunity to be volunteer handlers at the race start and finish and to assist at the checkpoints if they desire. But no matter which tour you select, you will have one of the most enjoyable experiences of your life.

" My first Iditarod experience was in 2012 and I chose Alaska Iditarod Tours as they offered the most comprehensive tour following the whole race from the start in Anchorage, visiting checkpoints along the trail and finishing in Nome. I was more than happy with my choice of tour company and the whole experience was one I will never forget. Rich Montagna has been involved with the Iditarod and mushing for many years and is very knowledgeable and interesting to talk to. I've found Richard is always prepared to go that extra mile to make sure his clients have the best experience. 2018 will be my 6th Iditarod and yes I will be joining Rich's Alaska Iditarod Tour for the sixth time and meeting up with a dozen or so other returning clients from various parts of the world, as well as catching up with friends that I have made in the villages and towns over the last five years."

Carol Hand with Jim Tweeto of Flying Alaska Six Time Returning Client Carol Hand in Unalakleet with Jim Tweeto of the Flying Wild Alaska TV show

"We've travelled with Alaska Iditarod Tours for 5 years in a row, and we're so excited to be going a sixth time in March 2017. We followed the Iditarod online for years, and finally decided we had to see it once in person. It was so much fun that we just keep coming back. Visiting the checkpoints is one of the tour highlights for us. It's a chance to see remote native villages, and watching the teams arrive at a checkpoint is such a thrill. It's also an opportunity to watch the mushers and veterinarians interact with the dogs, up close and personal. We've made friends on the tour with people from all over the world. We keep in touch throughout the year, and some we see on the tour again every year. It's been so much fun to find people who share our love of Alaska, mushing, and the Iditarod. If you've ever thought about seeing the Iditarod in person,

I highly recommend these tours." Carol Hand
