Restrictions on Operating the Motorhome

Some roads in the State of Alaska are not well maintained, nor well suited for motorhome travel.  Because the safety of our customers, the communities they travel through, and the motorhomes themselves are our top priority, RV travel in Alaska does come with road restrictions.  On these roads you may operate the vehicle under certain restrictions . The restrictions are:

  1. Do not exceed 25 MPH.  It is strongly recommended that this is adhered to.
  2. Stop and check the tires every 10 to 15 miles to ensure you don’t have a flat on the rear dual tires.
    The following are restricted roads.  Under no conditions are these roads to be traveled on with a motorhome from Great Alaskan Holidays:

Dalton Highway – from Elliott Highway to Arctic Circle

Note: Due to flying rocks Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. requires employees to wear safety glasses when driving the Dalton Highway.

  •  Denali Highway – Cantwell to Paxson (Occasionally in poor condition – For current conditions check with Alaska Dept of Transportation)
