The Nome - Teller Road travels 73 miles (West) and takes approximately 2 hours one-way without stops. Less than 300 people live in tiny Teller, and 85 percent of them are Eskimo living a subsistence lifestyle, making it a truly authentic Eskimo village. The small size is even more striking when you know that Teller was once a gold rush boomtown filled with 5,000 people. But don’t ignore the scenery along the way, which is spectacular. You’ll likely see a herd of reindeer grazing in the tundra along the way—it’s owned by a family in Teller and is part of the 25,000 reindeer that roam the Seward Peninsula. When you arrive in town, you’ll find one small local store and gift shop. And Native crafts are often available from the local people.
