Cycling the Best of the Yukon & Alaska

Pedalers' Alaska bicycle tour across Alaska and Yukon offers a cycle where the sun never sets. Starting with a ferry ride from Juneau to Haines, you will be welcomed to the Alaskan scene by visions of dolphins dancing in the waves and sea otters lazing on the shore. These sights are only the first of many, as the Alaskan Yukon Bike Tour takes you deep into the Alaskan and Canadian mountain ranges, along the Klehini River, and into the Yukon Territory. You will ride through endless untouched forests, past the turquoise blue of Kluane Lake, and between the Chugach and Wrangell Mountains, all the while experiencing landscapes more beautiful than you can imagine. The trip ends as it began, with a ferry across the Prince William Sound, giving you the chance to say farewell to the sea-life and glaciers that first greeted you.

The sense of wonder never has to stop, as you will spend the nights in historic roadhouses, small ranches, and authentic lodges. You will also have the opportunity to make your own adventures in the places you visit, spending free time exploring the towns or seeking out more nature vistas.

Good Gear

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.

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.
