Your Itinerary

Day 1 - UK to Anchorage

Fly from the UK to Anchorage by scheduled airline, with meals, drinks and seatback entertainment all provided. On arrival make your way to you your chosen hotel in Anchorage, for the start of your adventure.  After your arrival in Alaska, you need to spend a night in a hotel prior to picking up your motorhome tomorrow.  This will give you an opportunity to relax and recover from your flight ready to get going in the morning.

Hotel: The Lakefront Anchorage or similar

Day 2 - Palmer (45 miles)

After collecting your motorhome from the Anchorage depot, drive northeast on the Glenn Highway. You’ll pass the townships of Eagle River and Chugiak and continue on towards Palmer, which is about an hours drive from Anchorage. As you head through the Eklutna Flats, enjoy the towering vistas of the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains and catch a glimpse of Pioneer Peak, the closest peak in the distance.

Days 3 & 4 - Denali (200 miles)

Today you head from Palmer to Denali National Park continuing on the Parks Highway you drive through the Matanuska-Susitna Valley and Denali State Park. If time permits take a side trip to the small community of Talkeetna.

Days 5 & 6 - Fairbanks (125 miles)

Before leaving Denali National Park we suggest you head out on a wildlife tour. The park is inhabited by lots of different animal species, with some luck you may see bears, caribou, moose, sheep, wolves and a variety of birds. In the afternoon, continue on the Parks Highway north to Fairbanks. Accompanied by incredible forest and mountain landscape you drive through the communities of Healy, Nenana and by the community of Ester, an old gold mining camp.

Day 7 - Paxson/Glennallen (180 miles)

Today you head to Paxson/Glennallen, following the Richardson Highway until Delta Junction. Just outside of Fairbanks you drive by North Pole, the home of North America’s Santa Claus. In Delta Junction take the Richardson Highway and drive south towards Paxson/Glennallen.

Day 8 - Valdez (185 miles)

Today you head to Valdez, enjoy the spectacular drive on the Richardson Highway, part of the route parallels the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Valdez is a must see on your Alaska itinerary. The crashing glaciers and towering Chugach mountains rising from the sea make Valdez an absolutely beautiful sight.  Weather permitting stop and enjoy incredible views of the Wrangell Mountains. Drive by Worthington Glacier and through Keystone Canyon with its waterfalls.

Day 9 - Seward (85 miles)

This morning it is all aboard the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry to Whittier travelling through beautiful Prince William Sound. Upon arrival in Whittier drive through the Whittier-Portage Tunnel (one-lane tunnel, open to traffic during certain hours only). Then drive the Seward Highway through scenic landscape to Seward.

Portage Glacier and the Begich, Boggs Visitor Center is an interesting stop thanks to exhibits that let visitors walk through a simulated ice cave, view live ice worms or touch an iceberg. For a closer look at Portage Glacier, there are hour-long sightseeing boat cruises on Portage Lake or you can hike a number of foot trails that wind near the frozen monument.

Day 10 & 11 - Anchorage (13 miles)

Today you are heading back on the Seward Highway to Anchorage but before you do, visit Kenai Fjords National Park home to some of most pristine, rugged and breathtaking glacial vistas in North America. The massive Harding Icefield feeds the 38 glaciers of the park. These glaciers, in turn, have been sculpting the fjords making a home for the many species of marine life – mammals, fish and seabird alike.

Day 12 - Depart Anchorage

Return your motorhome to the depot and head for the airport for you journey home.

Day 13 - Arrive in the UK

Arrive back into the UK this morning where your holiday sadly comes to an end. If you would like, we can organise a transfer from the airport to get you back to your front door.
