    Nome is a seaport used by freighters and cruise ships, located on the southern side of the Seward Peninsula in Norton Sound, Alaska, just 250km across from Siberian Russia.

Interestingly, Nome is the finish line of the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race covering over 1680km across the wilderness from Anchorage.

    Unga Island is the largest of the dozen or so Shumagin Islands that lie just south of Southwest Alaska, that part of the State of Alaska that extends in an arc west to the Aleutian Islands. Unga Island was formerly named Grekodelarovskoe (‘Greek-Delarov’) for Evstratii Ivanovich Delarov who explored the area in the late 18th century on behalf of the Russian-American Company. The island is now effectively uninhabited since the population of Unga had departed by 1969 for the adjacent Popof Island and its major fishing port of Sand Point (population 1000). Unga is now a ghost town, a graveyard for its old abandoned dwellings. Read more about Unga Island, USA

    View of Prince Rupert, Canada

    Canada's northernmost coastal city and gateway to Alaska, Prince Rupert boasts one of the world's largest natural harbours, ice-free year round. Arriving into port by ship is breathtaking, as you pass hundreds of islands and make your way through narrow, mist-shrouded passageways. Because of its moderate climate and mists, it is not unusual to see several rainbows a day, including double and triple rainbows that span the entire horizon. The natural landscape provides most of the draw for this locale, but it also has a history as one of the oldest continuously occupied regions in the world, with a First Nations culture that dates back over 10,000 years.
