Description

This is the most detailed, up-to-date guide to travelling the highway, from BC through the Yukon and Alaska to Prudhoe Bay. Fairbanks, Anchorage, Dawson City, Skagway, Denali National Park, Valdez - these are just some of the destinations covered. Also included are details on alternate highways, such as the Stewart-Cassiar, the Yellowhead, Top-of-the-World, the Richardson and Glenn Highways. The authors talk about where to find wildlife and how to get the best photos; they share their knowledge about the most coveted camping areas; they tell you which historic sites you should take in. An entire chapter is dedicated to the Alaska Marine Highway, a ferry service that serves as a lifeline to Alaska's coastal towns. It also includes 30 plus maps, and colour photos. Adventure Guides are about living more intensely, waking up to your surroundings and truly experiencing all that you encounter. Each book offers an ideal mix of practical travel info along with culturally enriching activities and physical adventures. And the fun is for everyone, no matter what their age or ability. Comprehensive background information - history, culture, geography, climate - gives you a solid knowledge of each destination and its people. Regional chapters take you on an introductory tour, with stops at museums, historic sites and local attractions. Places to stay and eat; transportation to, from and around your destination; practical concerns; and tourism contacts - it's all here! Detailed maps feature walking and driving tours. Then come the adventures - both cultural and physical - from canoeing and hiking to dance or cooking classes. This unique approach allows you to really immerse yourself in the local culture.show more
