START YOUR JOURNEY HERE
NORTHEASTERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
The Alaska Highway is renowned as one of the most scenic drives in the Province of BC and is a “must see” of any circle tour through the region. Northern BC is the place to drive in summer for long daylight hours, unspoiled wilderness and unlimited fishing, hiking and outdoor enjoyment. Your trip along Highway 97 will offer stunning scenery and historic towns with many stops along the way.
LARGER THAN LIFE!
Drive or ride the historic Alaska Highway, the famous northern route that winds through eight Yukon Communities, a national park, major attractions and the Yukon’s capital city; Whitehorse. More mountains than buildings, more wildlife than people and more glaciers than stoplights.
THE LAST FRONTIER
Alaska is Amazingly Different! With the tallest mountains, the largest area of national parklands, the highest concentration of glaciers and the longest stretch of coastline in the United States. Alaska – a place of magnificence.
BC’S VAST WILDERNESS
For those traveling to the Yukon and/or Alaska, Highway 16 / 37 offers an alternate route from the Alaska Highway. Much less used than the Alaska Highway, it offers very different scenery (not better or worse, just different), making it perfect as part of a circle route.
THE MOST SCENIC ROUTE
JASPER TO DAWSON CREEK
Jasper National Park to Dawson Creek, BC (Mile ‘0’ of the Alaska Highway) is approximately 524 km. Highway AB 16, AB 40 N and AB 43 W then connects with Highway BC 2 at the British Columbia and Alberta border.
