We drove the section from Tetlin Junction to Haines Junction. The highway is an impressive feat of engineering, though there is not much to show for it along the way. The best section is further to the south of that stretch as there are amazing...More

We drove a RV from NY to Alaska and took three months. This road is an awesome, beautiful experience but be prepared to be nervous at times. We saw snowmen in August! We saw lightning and hail at the same time. Many people have flats...More

We've discussed for years driving to Alaska. So we did last month. We had heard the roads were bad but "bad" doesn't begin to describe it! In many parts they were the absolute worst roads we have traveled. And we have driven many 4 wheel...More

I'll be driving the Alaskan Highway in June of 2017 in an RV. Not sure how many miles we can expect to cover each day. Do we need to have campground reservations? Since we don't know how far we'll be able to travel each day I wasn't sure what to do about reservations.

I am from Australia and want to know if it is possible to hire a vehicle in Vancouver and then drop it off in Anchorage after driving the Alaska Highway?

Best bet might be one of the RV rental companies, but I am not sure either.
Possible 2016 Trip: My wife and I are planning to rent a RV for 8-10 days and do the typical Loop up to Denali and then over to Glennallen and down to Valdez before returning . Some questions> 1. The Denali National Park requires 3 day stay. Is it work dedicated that much time there or just one day and travel into the park? 2. Is Fairbanks worth driving up to? 3. Assuming one were to go to Fairbanks, it would seem the most efficient way to go down to Valdez is via Delta Junction and then Glennallen. I read though that the road from Cantwell to Paxson (George Banks Highway) is not to be missed. Would you back track from Fairbanks back to Cantwell and then cut over to Paxson or not? Thanks in advance.

I think it is not the drive over to Paxson is called the Alphabet Hills.
