Alaska Highway Bike Tour
Bicycling the Al-Can Highway
Get a taste of the Al-Can on our Alaska cycling holiday pedaling the notorious Alaska Highway. Cycling end to end, experience the best the Al-Can has to offer, from spectacular stretches of wilderness to eclectic small-town landmarks!
The Alaska Highway Bicycle Tour leads you from Milepost Zero to a stretch of the original Alaskan Highway, built in a short 9 months during World War II, and through the quiet, tree-covered hills of British Columbia. The route goes up and over the Steamboat Mountains, curls around the shore of the Muncho Lake, and winds down at the Liard Hot Springs, where you can take a well-deserved day of relaxation in a hot spring surrounded by ferns and orchids. As the cycling continues, you will ride deeper into the wilderness, where bison and black bears roam the roadsides, past the snow-covered peaks of St. Elias, and along the blue waters of Kluane Lake. Upon entering Alaska, you will commemorate your journey with a photo at the famous Milepost 1422 and an amazing final dinner with Alaskan craft beers.

Frontier Grub & Gourmet Cuisine
Dining on our Alaska trips is one of contrasts. Some evenings our remote lodges offer frontier grub, hearty family cooking that is heavy on meats, fish and potatoes, similar to what early residents survived on. Other nights we dine on outstanding culinary treats with salmon, halibut, garden fresh salads, delightful homemade deserts.
Travelers considering the trip need to be aware that the tour is not vegetarian friendly, as choices at remote lodges may be limited to salad and fries for non meat or fish eaters.
Pedalers provides Fuji Sportif, a lightweight, touring road bike. The bikes are equipped with beefier tires to handle Alaskan roads, disc brakes, dropbars and a wide range of gearing for the rolling terrain.
As a safe health measure, guests are asked to bring their own helmets and waterbottles for cycling.
The Alaska Highway Bike Tour meets at Fort St John Airport, BC, Canada and ends at Fairbanks International Airport, Alaska, USA.
