Alaska, the last frontier!

Every trip to Alaska is extraordinary.  The adventure, by land, air or sea is filled with wonderful experiences of awe-inspiring beauty, phenomenal wildlife and colorful human characters.  

One way to make the effort even more memorable is to drive the Alaska Highway, enjoying the journey through western Canada starting at Alaska Highway mile 0 in Dawson Creek, British Colombia and officially ending at Delta Junction at the historic milepost 1422. Once arriving, Alaska currently has 24 National Parks to enjoy,
