How Long to Spend
If you're driving The Alaska Highway into Alaska from Canada, Tok is the first major town you'll encounter, about 90 miles from the Canadian border. It makes a great first night in Alaska with numerous campgrounds, inns, and B&Bs. But it doesn't need to just be a layover. A flightseeing tour will take you over nearby Wrangell St. Elias National Park or Yukon-Charley Preserve.
Where will you go from Tok? Follow The Alaska Highway into Fairbanks, or head south on the Tok Cut-Off, where a junction can point you towards Anchorage or Valdez.
