Alaska road trip

Turnagain Arm, Alaska

20 day road trip | June-July 2017

Wildlife and scenery are the two main draws for these travelers. Since Alaska is a big and, all things considered, busy place in the summer, we designed a trip that will give them a chance to experience and enjoy dramatic landscapes and catch more than a glimpse of wildlife.

Please note that, as with all our individual trips, it can be modified at will and tailored to your preferences. The emphasis on wildlife excursions and off-road driving in this trip plan have added to the travel budget

We can also easily add the Yukon to the mix for an even larger taste of that incredible part of the North.

By including (tent) camping and/or taking fewer excursions costs will come down. A smaller rental car without off-road coverage will save $600/€550 pp. Additionally, if you have more time (and there is never enough time to see this country) traveling by camper is cheaper in the long run.
