Here are five things you must do when RV-ing to Alaska:
Explore the Most Beautiful Drive in America along the Seward Highway South of Anchorage
The long drive along the winding, snow-patched roads with the lake Turnagain Arm on one side and the mountains on the other, interspersed with diminutive waterfalls will ultimately land you into a dramatically beautiful glacial region. Keep your eyes open for beluga whales and bald eagles on the way.
Experience Nature at Its Wildest At Homer and Kenai Fjords National Parks
Stay in one of the RV parks in Seward. Besides welcoming you to a jaw-dropping view of mountains and waters, the park will offer you easy access to restaurants and shops. If you are looking forward to some aquatic adventure, the place will give you access to fishing charters and boat tours that depart from Seward daily.
Behold the World from the Top
Drive up to the base-camp at Mt. McKinley and take a helicopter ride there to catch a bird’s eye view of a snow-covered Alaska. Avail one of the multiple flying services that will let you circle the entire region. At $500 a person, it may sound a little exorbitant, but believe us, it is absolutely worth every penny.
Get ready with your hook, line and sinker, as you can find scaled species – salmon, halibut, snapper – just about in every water body throughout the state. If your particular interest lies in catching salmons, head to this amazing territory in the later part of summer.
Cross the Arctic Circle
Enter the elite club of those revered sailors and adventurers who have crossed the Arctic Circle. Although there are flights to take you to the Arctic Circle up to Prudhoe Bay, you being an RV-er should take a different route Take an action-packed motor home ride along the Alaska 11 (Dalton Highway) to the Arctic Circle. Don’t forget to ask for the certificate that says you’ve crossed that imaginary dotted line on the map
