DAYS 1 – 11: USA (ALASKA)
Your epic overland tour of North & Central America starts with one night in Anchorage. There is lots of see and do around the city, so we recommend arriving a few days in advance to give yourself time to explore Anchorage and its surrounds.
A short drive from Anchorage will take you to the town of Seward, the gateway to the Kenai Fjords National Park. Here you will have a free day where you have the opportunity to take a boat trip out on to the fjords for incredible wildlife spotting opportunities.
From Seward you will drive back past Anchorage and then on to Denali National Park, the home of Mt McKinley (now known as Denali), North America’s highest mountain. You will have three nights camping in the national park, with a full day included shuttle bus tour to the Toklat River area and then a free day for optional activities such as hiking and cycling.
A short and scenic drive along the Denali Highway will take you to a lodge situated near the base of the Maclaren Glacier. You will have one night camping by the lodge before going on a remote bushcamp to experience the Alaskan wilderness for the second night.
From the lodge you will drive along the scenic and rugged Denali Highway to Wrangell-St Elias National Park, the largest national park in the USA. You will have two nights here and an abundance of optional activities to partake in such as hiking, historical mine tours, glacier walks or ice climbing.
From Wrangell / St Elias, a long but scenic drive will take you to your campsite outside Tok where you will spend your last night in Alaska.
