Bering Land Bridge National Preserve

Overview

The Bering Land Bridge National Preserve is one of the most remote national park areas, located on the Seward Peninsula in northwest Alaska. The Preserve is a remnant of the land bridge that connected Asia with North America more than 13,000 years ago. Today Bering Land Bridge National Preserve provides archeologists and paleontologists a chance to explore the past, while the native Inupiat still utilize the land as their ancestors did long ago.

Directions

Driving: 

The Preserve is vast and access is limited; there are no roads that lead directly into it. If you want to reach the Visitor Center in Nome, you must fly in. A small road system explores the area around Nome, and rental cars are available, but you must also fly in to the Preserve from Nome.

Flying: 

Review the list of plane operators permitted to land in the Preserve. Flying is permissible in the summer months.
