About Alaska's Highway
What are the roads like? Alaska's highways are modern and well maintained. While we don't have eight-lane interstates like the Lower 48, we do have hundreds of miles of paved road with wide shoulders, plenty of signage and just enough services to keep your tank (and belly) full without cluttering up the scenery. Billboards aren't legal here, so your view of Alaska's vast and beautiful scenery will be unobstructed. Traffic jams are rare and more likely to be caused by a moose in the roadway than other vehicles. Lots of turnouts and campgrounds along the way mean plenty of photo opps and picnic spots to complete the road-trip experience.
What does an Alaska Driving Tour include?
Alaska has a few main highways that link Anchorage and Southcentral Alaska to the Kenai Peninsula to the south; Denali National Park and Fairbanks to the north; and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Valdez and Prince William Sound to the east. Alaska driving tours include accommodations and tours in a variety of communities along the state's road system. Depending on the package you choose, driving tours may also include ferry, rail, motorcoach or air travel. Some of our most popular itineraries incorporate bear viewing in remote Katmai National Park; guided kayaking at a backcountry lodge in Kenai Fjords National Park; a historic sternwheeler tour in the gold-rush town of Fairbanks; flightseeing around North America's tallest peak, Mount McKinley; or visiting the sled dogs at an Iditarod champion's kennel.
