Alaska Highway Route

The highway route from the U.S. through Canada and into Anchorage is one of the most beautiful drives on Earth.

Stretching more than 2,000 miles from the southern British Columbia border to Anchorage, it is an unforgettable journey. The best route goes past Dawson Creek, British Columbia and through Whitehorse, Yukon Territory and Tok, Alaska on the way to Anchorage.

Plan at least four days of travel time through British Columbia and Yukon Territory - more if you plan to explore along the way.

The last unpaved sections of the route were upgraded to asphalt years ago, but expect gravel breaks anywhere repair crews are working.
