The City of Nome no longer requires testing for anyone arriving at our airport ... but the testing tent is still open, so you can still get tested (free!) for COVID upon arrival in Nome if you wish. I'm still requiring proof of vaccination for guests with whom I'm sharing vehicle space. Safe trav...

Wonderful day exploring the Nome wilderness. Carol provided snowshoes, friendliness, and expert commentary. Truly one of the best days I have had in a long time.

Had a blast snowshoeing. Carol is very knowledgeable about the terrain and critters in the area. Very highly recommended.

I spent most of two days with Carol. She was a pleasant and engaging companion as well as an excellent birding guide. She was knowledgeable about the locations and timing of Nome birds. She worked hard trying to find my target species. Her own delight in Nome’s natural history was evident. It was the best possible experience.

Birding! Hiking! History! Wilderness!

I love Nome, my home since 1996! I love viewing the birds that reside on or visit the Seward Peninsula. I love hiking and snowshoeing out in the country around Nome. I’m fascinated by Nome history. And I’m eager to share any of these enthusiasms with you during your visit to Nome and the beautiful Seward Peninsula!

Roam Nome is the small company I founded to enable me to be your guide to the birds, the natural beauty, and the history of this place. 

Whether you want a guide to help you find Nome’s many bird species; an active outing such as a day hike or snowshoe adventure; a day tour of Nome with a drive to view wildlife, historic sites and stunning scenery along our road system; or an hour-long dive into Nome history with a slideshow about my historic home (an 1899 building that was once a gold rush saloon), Roam Nome has you covered.

Experience this amazing place!
