      I'm arriving on a cruise ship and would like to see the Rie Munoz gallery. What is the best way to get there from the cruise ship and back?

      Also, if I wanted to go to from the ship to the Gallery to the Glacier and then back to the ship, what is the best transportation. This ship arrives at 1pm.

      how did the trucks etc get to Nome?

      by bri4444 Online Now May 11, 2013 at 11:43 PM

      Was thinking of trying to get my car which is AWD but not a 4x4 up to Nome by ferry this summer, however only way in seems to be by plane. Do the vehicles that are up there come in by ice roads during the winter? If do decide to go now will fly in and just take taxi's and guide services instead, just curious how all the trucks etc up there got there as doubt they would fly them in?

    • Renting a vehicle in Nome

      by phoneticSilence Online Now Dec 28, 2005 at 5:54 PM

      I'm planning a trip to Nome, next summer, and i'd like to have a means of transport. The problem is that i'm 19 and too young to really rent a car/truck. Usually you should be 21/25. To be honest, the rentals I have seen there are a little expensive anyway ($80+ per day), but I was wondering if anyone had any bright ideas? I wouldn't mind a quad, if the rental on them wasn't so bad and I could be insured, but obviously it's not ideal if I'm carrying luggage (including a tent) on the back. So, my options seem to be - ask the rental companies if they'll rent me a car even though i'm 19 ("i'll treat it well, honest!"), rent a quad and freeze, buy a car there or pay someone for the use of their car and obviously pay for the insurance whilst i'm driving.

      I should probably set the scene. Like I said, i'm 19. I'm from the UK and will have a full UK license (for less than 1 year though). I'm planning to travel to Nome and stay for around 2-3 weeks. Camping - to save some money and it looks fun. I'm planning on spending a fair bit of time Gold Mining around Nome beach, maybe up the hills a bit too (wherever it's allowed without a permit). I'd like to see surrounding villages/towns in my own time and at my own pace though, so i guess what I'm asking is -

      1: Is there any hope of renting a car/truck/quad that you know of?
      2: Assuming soeone was stu.. kind* enough to lend me their car, would insurance be easy enough to get a hold of?
      3: If I bought a car, would insurance be easy enough and would there be any other bureaucracy to deal with?
      4: Do you live in Nome and want to lend me a car for 2-3 weeks next June/July? =D

      Thanks, Andrew.
