One of the most common questions we are asked is how best to get to Pilgrim Hot Springs. There are a few ways to visit the springs and a variety of modes of transportation exist. Namely, the 60 mile road leading from Nome all the way to Pilgrim Hot Springs. Some choose to visit by air as well...

Driving the road requires a vehicle of some kind, but visitors come out in cars, trucks, bicycles, snowmachines, or four-wheelers. The first 53 miles of the Kougarok Road are generally well maintained but please take caution and drive slowly. At times, especially after hard summer rains the road can get rough with potholes and washboards. Flying rocks can be a bummer if they crack your windshield. Also, watch out for people pulled over on the side of the road. Please keep in mind that there are no gas stations or stores outside of Nome. Local's advice: bring a spare tire!
