Alaska Highway road trip
Our Alaska Highway road trip is going to be an exciting travel adventure. Follow our boomer road trip on the Alaska Highway: We'll take a B.C. ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert before beginning a road trip that takes us to Stewart and Iskut, B.C., Teslin, Whitehorse and Dawson City, Yukon plus Tok and Girdwood, Alaska. In Whittier, we'll board a ferry for a 4-day ride on the Alaska Marine Highway to Bellingham, WA. Use our ideas to plan your own Alaska Highway road trip. Look for #YukonHo!
Hatcher Pass Lodge
Take an Alaska Highway side trip: "Hatcher Pass Lodge - Palmer, AK Nestled in beautiful Hatcher Pass just a mile from Independence Mine, Hatcher Pass Lodge offers a rustic, breathtaking setting for your next Alaskan Adventure. Cute, cozy cabins are situated just down the mountain from the main lodge where you can sip a hot buttered rum and watch the world below. The lodge is a great starting point for hiking and skiing. Don't expect anything fancy, but it's true Alaskan experience!"
What fun Fairbanks accommodations. Another pinned said: "Want more train and less station in your stay? Consider the Aurora-Express, a bed and breakfast in Fairbanks, Alaska, made out of authentic Alaska Railroad cars renovated to historical periods. Mike and Sue Blomfield Wilson bought the railcars from the Denali National Park Hotel for only $1 apiece -- but did have to spend thousands of dollars to transport them. (Aurora-Express)"
Town of Chicken
Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge
If your Alaska Highway road trip takes you to the Kenai Peninsula, plan a fishing excursion on the famous Kenai River. Staying at The Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge puts you in the center of the fishing action. #YukonHo!
Tok Visitors Center
Iskut Band Council
We'll be looking for this guy on the way to Iskut. Another pinner said: "I snapped a picture of this old grampa with a cell phone. I managed to snap three from 25 feet away. I graciously thanked him after the third shot as I slowly drove away from him. I shot this picture 5 km south of Iskut, BC."
