Alaska Highway

Hot springs, buffalo, and moose…

The 2nd section of our epic ride follows close to 1400 km of the Alaska Highway, which was constructed during World War II for the purpose of connecting the contiguous USA to Alaska. Legendary for being a rough, challenging drive, the highway is currently paved over its entire length, although we can expect a few rougher stretches due to construction work and periodic flooding.

From Whitehorse, our route takes us past tranquil Teslin Lake, then across the continental divide for the first time, and into Watson Lake famed for its signpost of license plates from around the world. From there, it’s into the northeast corner of British Columbia and a rest day in search of moose and a refreshing dip at the Liard Hotsprings.

The quiet majesty of jade green Muncho Lake will beckon us onwards towards Fort Nelson which was founded as a trading post but today derives its livelihood from oil & gas and forestry. This section ends in Fort St John. Here departing and arriving riders have the convenience of an airport with connections to and from Edmonton and Vancouver.

Level: intermediate

Some long and tough days with shorter less challenging days mixed in. Environment (sometimes including wind and heat) and terrain (including some significant climbing) are more of a factor. Some unexpected challenges may creep in from time to time.
