Alaska is a big and, all things considered, fairly busy place in the summer, so we propose a start in June for a road trip that will give ample opportunity to experience dramatic landscapes and catch more than a glimpse of wildlife.
Which is the main focus of these adventurous off-the-road travelers.
Please note that, as with all our individual trips, this trip (which is planned for 2022) can be modified at will and tailored to your preferences. Adding the Yukon (yes, that is in Canada) will add travel time but also a considerable boost to your travel experience. The many wildlife excursions have added considerably to the travel budget.
We can also easily add the Yukon to the mix for an even larger taste of the North.
Kodiak Bear - Ursus humungus...
Columbia Glacier in Prince William Sound
Denali State Park - views of the Alaska Range
Matanuska Glacier in the Matanuska Valley recreation area
We do not offer ‘off the shelf’ travel packages. Every vacation is custom made. The trip budget below is based on the actual trip planned for 2022.
Cost per person (1€ = $US 1.12)
Car rental Midsize SUV (off-road coverage included)
Lodging (camping 12x, cabins/lodge 7x)
Alaska State Ferries Whittier to Valdez (car included)

Custom Travel Plan & Organization of your trip * * Postage and printing travel guide extra ($Can 35/€ 25)
By including more (tent) camping and/or participating in fewer excursions, costs will come down. A smaller rental car without off-road coverage will save $505/€451 pp. Additionally, giving yourself a little more time (and there never is enough time to see Alaska.....) traveling by camper will be cheaper in the long run.
