9. Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, United States|
The Alaskan dogsled race, pits man -- called "mushers" in the local lingo -- and canine teams against nature, as they cross 1,850 kilometers of Alaskan mountain ranges, forests, frozen rivers and bleak tundra.
It’s a fast, furious, exhilarating race like no other and attracts teams from all walks of life. Gale-force winds, blizzards, bitingly cold temperatures, and long hours of darkness are some of the hazards faced by competitors, who fly into the start at Anchorage, before crossing the finish line on the West Bering coast nine or 10 days later.
The race is a serious commitment, and teams should expect to budget US$14,000
