If you have ever wanted to experience the wilderness of Alaska without the restrictions of a scheduled tour, an RV trip might be perfect for you. Alaska has spectacular sights along its highways, including endless mountains, colorful glaciers and fresh or salt waterways. Explore at your own pace, spend time doing the things you want to do and don’t worry about time restrictions, you make your own schedule.
If you have never driven an RV, don’t let that stop you. Some motorhomes are not as hard to drive as you might think. Alaska Motorhome Rentals has a fleet of late model Class C motorhomes which are similar to driving a van or pick-up and they will give you a thorough orientation. They also have a toll-free number for roadside assistance. Their motorhomes are between 21 and 31 feet long with plenty of room and privacy and are outfitted with housekeeping supplies and equipment.
Alaska’s highways are modern and well maintained. Traveler resources and services are plentiful. Many highways in the state are recognized by the National Scenic Byways program with two being designated as All-American Roads, the highest level of federal recognition available.
When you rent an RV, you can combine your road trip with a cruise or rail journey with a one-way rental. This means you you can cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage then drive the Alaska Highway south to Seattle. Alternatively you could take an Alaska Railroad journey from Anchorage to Fairbanks and return by motorhome.
