Alaska Driving Tours

Driving tours stand out amongst other independent travel options for several reasons:

1. You Can Be Spontaneous! Usually, the only reservations made in advance are lodging accommodations and key excursions you don't want to miss.

2. You Don't Have to Conform to a Strict Schedule. Driving gives you the freedom to stop where you want, when you want, and for however long you want. This can be very rewarding as you'll find plenty of roadside rest areas where you can look for wildlife, take photos, or read interpretive signs.

3. You Can Visit Off-the-Beaten-Path Destinations. Having a vehicle gives you the option to visit Alaska's lesser-known spots. Stop in small towns away from the crowds, and meet local Alaskans. Some visitors are nervous about renting a car in an unknown area, but we can assure you that Alaska’s highways are safe, fun to drive and offer nonstop scenery: mountains, rivers, forest and tundra. The itineraries outlined below put you in touch with a local itinerary specialist here in Alaska to help customize your trip. Don't see the itinerary you want below? Contact us for a custom trip.
