Each traveler receives a discount airline ticket to travel to Anchorage, the northernmost
city in the United States. The climate is subarctic but maritime influences
moderate temperatures, resulting in summer temperatures of 55 to 78 degrees and
winter temperatures between five and 30 degrees. Visitors enjoy cross-country
skiing and viewing unique wildlife like moose, wolves, foxes, lynx, and whales.
After exploring nature and attractions in Anchorage, take a
359-mile drive to Fairbanks, the largest city in the Alaskan interior. Rivers,
valleys, and mountains mark the landscape and the city experiences unusual meteorological
conditions including heavy ice fog and dense wildfire smoke. The aurora
borealis is the most famous condition and is visible 200 days or more each year.
Once Fairbanks has been explored, make the 200-mile journey
to Tok, located in the southeastern portion of the state. Tok lies on a flat
plain and has been the site of Athabascan Indian settlements for centuries. The
Alaska Road Commission established a camp there while building the famous
Alaska Highway. Tok survived a raging forest fire in 1990, allowing visitors to
continue to enjoy the rivers, valleys, and gorges of the nearby Gauley River
National Recreation area.
This fly-drive vacation ends with a 318-mile drive back to
Anchorage. Stop along the way to experience local cuisine, explore nearby
attractions, or just enjoy the amazing scenery. Alaska is a unique state that
everyone should visit at least once. Click here to price
