LIFE IS ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY…
There are many paths that you can take to during your one way RV rental to Alaska, otherwise known as our Spring Adventure Package or SAP. This is just one example. We encourage you to research different routes to Alaska for your SAP based upon your time, budget, and sightseeing agenda.
During your SAP adventure, you choose the road from Iowa through South Dakota and see the sculpted majesty of the Badlands (2) and the amazing Wind Caves. Your camera never stops snapping as Mt. Rushmore (3) and Crazy Horse Monuments captivate you with their grandeur. In Wyoming you stare skyward at the Devil’s Tower (4) and further west the Grand Tetons display their mighty rise from the valley floor. Further on at Yellowstone (5), the buffalo meander slowly grazing on spring grasses. Venturing into Montana reveals the history of Custer’s Battlefield while the towns of Billings, and the state capitol of Helena, provide welcome places to rest and restock your SAP supplies.
As you roll north to the border during your one way RV rental to Alaska, Glacier National Park (6) is a true wonder but there is even more fun in Calgary, Canada, the home of the world famous Calgary Stampede. A side trip west to the Banff Hotel (7) and Lake Louise is always worth the view. Pushing your one way RV rental to Alaska ever northward, Edmonton is the last sizable city before crossing over the Alberta-British Columbia border to Dawson Creek and the beginning of the Alcan Highway. The Alcan was built in 1942 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. They created 1,523 miles of road through the wilderness in only 9 months, despite mud and muskeg in the summer and ice and snow in the winter.
Further along it is time for a warm dip in the Liard Hot Springs (8). At Watson Lake you visit the famous “Sign Forest” (9) where you nail up that old sign borrowed from the kids room. Then it’s on to Whitehorse and a visit to gold rush history in the riverboat SS Klondike (10).
Just when you believe nothing could be more beautiful than Canada, your one way RV rental to Alaska has you arriving in Alaska where the scenery takes your breath away. As you drive, the Wrangell Mountains, glaciers, and wildlife greet you. You pay a visit to Delta Junction (11) and the end of the famous Alcan Highway. All too soon you arrive at Great Alaskan Holidays in Anchorage (12) with memories of a lifetime.
