Drive the remote northern roads of Canada and the US on this motorcycle tour from the Rocky Mountains, through northern British Columbia, the Yukon and up through the state of Alaska. When your guides did the planning for this trip, they kept in mind that a high percentage of people who visit Alaska will only do it once in their lifetime, so they have included an action-packed 21 day 5000 mile journey that covers the entire state. They have called it a "trek" to exemplify the Gold Rush in 1896-1899.
There was an immigration of an estimated 100,000 prospectors to the Klondike region to seek their fortune. Indeed, it was a trek for both the successful and those less fortunate. This route takes you north to mile zero of the Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek, BC. This piece of Canadian history was constructed in 1942. The completely paved road was built for the purpose of connecting the USA to Alaska through Canada. It stretches in length to 1390 miles, and was opened to the public in 1948. Scenic views of towering mountains, sparkling glaciers, and waterways are abundant along this historic highway as well as up-close encounters with wildlife such as sheep, eagles, and moose.
Hwy 97 stretches north to Fort Nelson then swings west to Watson Lake, Yukon. This town holds many attractions one being the Signpost Forest that was started in 1942, a spectacle to see. Travelling northwest, you enter into Alaska, a state with an astounding amount of attractions, too numerous to mention. The excursion chosen for this trip is a cruise on a yacht to view the stunning sites of glaciers calving into the ocean. It will leave you with a memory that will last your lifetime.
Dont forget the numerous sites and scenic routes the Yukon and British Columbia also have to offer as this trip makes a loop which covers a lot of country along the way. The last stop for souvenirs will be Jasper, then on to Calgary, Alberta for thefarewell supper and reminisce about the experience you have just enjoyed. This is the ultimate motorcycle tour for the true adventurer.
