Let’s be real. If you’re going to take a big, adventurous road trip this year, chances are you’re going to do it in North America. That’s where your car is, after all. Fortunately, staying on your home continent doesn’t mean you have to compromise.
Stretching from Dawson Creek, BC to Delta Junction, AK, the Alaskan-Canadian Highway (or ALCAN) winds through 1,422 miles of mostly pristine Rocky Mountain wilderness. And unlike the routes mentioned above, it’s fully paved.
If you go: Peak season on the ALCAN is mid-summer, so if you plan to travel during these months plan to book hotel rooms or campsites in advance. In any time of year, make sure your car is in working order and bring a complete maintenance kit.
