Iditarod 2021 Starting Line Event

Description, Itinerary, Tour Map, Details, Cancellation Policy, Travel Insurance

Every year we make the trip out to Willow, Alaska, for the Official Start of the Iditarod - The Last Great Race on Earth!  This event is full service beginning with transportation, story telling by our professional tour guides, and a light breakfast of fresh baked scones and hot chocolate in transit to Willow. 

Our private hospitality tent is right at the Starting Line, a great spot for watching the mushers take off! We also provide extra activities like hula hooping and snowshoeing! Enjoy an Alaska-style camp lunch all day on the lake. Make sure to bring your camera to capture the mushers and their teams as they sprint off on their approximately 1,000 mile race!

Due to the popularity of the Iditarod day tour, Iditarod tours are non-refundable under any circumstance.  Please get travel insurance!

Salmon Berry Travel & Tours recommends travel insurance provided by TravelSafe Insurance. Our recommendation is based on positive guest feedback. In particular, the experience of one Salmon Berry guest is instructive:

Our guest had booked the vacation of a lifetime and the ultimate Alaska package. She had to cancel the trip a week before it began due to unfortunate circumstances.

She later told us that within ten minutes of phone time her claim was processed in full. She was very pleased with TravelSafe Insurance's immediate and empathetic response. Getting a refund for her trip was the last thing she wanted to think about, and TravelSafe Insurance took care of her needs and concerns immediately.
