Alaska is larger than France, Spain, Germany and Italy combined, but has fewer inhabitants than Frankfurt. There are over 50,000 km of coastline, more than three million lakes, active volcanoes and countless glaciers. So, it should be obvious what to expect on this tour: solitude and magnificent nature at the edge of civilization.
A little thrill-seeking spirit is required when you travel to the “Last Frontier“; there’s a reason why we call this an Adventure Tour. The roads may not captivate with their many curves, but instead with the landscapes they transport us through. And be sure to watch out for the moose and bears that cross them occasionally; big animals you should steer well clear of.
There are huge glaciers and mountains to be seen - including Denali, the highest in North America - endless forests, thousands of lakes, thriving wildlife, and by contrast the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Art and culture are scarce, but the Native Americans are happy to share their traditions with visitors. The tour leads from Anchorage down to the Kenai Fjords, then north to the Denali National Park where we spend our first rest day. Continuing to Fairbanks and beyond, we turn south-east, past the town of North Pole and through the beautiful Tanana Valley all the way to Tok. We then cross the notorious Thompson Pass to reach Valdez. Here we take time during our second rest day to experience the marine wildlife of Prince William Sound. Two more riding days and we’re back in Anchorage.
