For beauty, stillness and serenity, the Alaskan Highway claims priority. With little to distract your attention, this drive from British Columbia, through the Yukon and into Alaska will bring you back in touch with the natural world of the deep northern territories of America.

You can swim at Liard Hot Springs, place your own sign(s) and read the others in Sign Forest at Watson Lake, visit reindeer near Whitehorse (Yukon) and Santa Claus House in North Pole. Animal lovers will love the elk, wild sheep, grizzly bears, moose and marmots that often chill out on the highway itself. Marine lovers will favour the otters, dolphins, whales and puffers.
