    Alaska 2 week road trip 2022

    As per my threads on here, I've had to postpone the the trips to the lower 48 for next summer, due to problems with getting the bikes across to the USA.

    I've been working on a couple of trips to Alaska which I was doing in 2023 so can bring them forward as the freight issues do not affect the..

    So, we have here a fantastic 13 day trip based in Alaska and the Yukon. It's a road trip and will be on rental bikes. Some of the roads can get a little rough and there are some sections of hard packed dirt but they are no problem.

    The trip starts on Sunday 17th July and finishes on Friday 29th July 2022 in Anchorage and the highlights of the trip include:

    • Homer Spit
    • Wittier Tunnel and Portage Glacier
    • Talkeetna
    • Mount Denali
    • Fairbanks
    • Arctic Circle on the Dalton Highway
    • Chena Hot Springs
    • Chicken Alaska
    • Top of the World Highway
    • Dawson City home of the famous Sour toe drink)
    • Valdez
    • Glenn Highway and Matanuska Glacier
    • Haines Pass



    The route is designed to show you the best of Alaska and takes in many of the must see places in teh staggering part of the world.

    The trip will be on rental bikes so you fly in, collect your bike, follow me for 13 days and then drop your bike off at the end of the trip. All motels are pre booked and you pay for these as well as your food, drinks etc as you go. Please remember I'm guiding the trip so I take all worry out of the trip and as anyone will tell you who has been on my trips, I'm pretty laid back, know all the places to stop and encourage you to relax and enjoy the wonderful places we are in.

    The bikes available are BMW R1200/1250GS's and BMW F700/800/850GS's so there is an option for everyone. They have a couple of KLR's and Himalayans as well but they are probably not suited to the distance we have to cover.

    Our daily average mileage is about 220 which is very easy up there as there is very little traffic. We also have a great day off in Dawson City which is a fantastic place. The relatively low mileage gives us plenty of time to explore where we are and gives time for plenty of stops to take in everything around us.

    Alaska is a truly epic place to ride and experience and it's unlike anywhere you will have been before. One minute you'll be looking at a glacier amongst the snow capped mountains, then you will see a bear wandering along the roadside and then see Salmon return to spawn in Valdez.

    The trip is ideal for pillions as well as just riders.

    Flights are plentiful in and out of Anchorage, our hotel is a short taxi ride so getting there and back couldn't be easier.

    Please message me if you want full details of this great trip.

    New owners mate and new bikes. You've done most of it so should know what a great trip this will be.
