Paved highway from Dawson Creek, British Columbia, to Delta Junction, Alaska; 2,238 kilometers (1,390 miles). The Alaska Highway is still the most popular route to the North Country, and it is impossible to drive to Alaska or the Yukon from the south without traveling at least part of it. The highway is paved along its entire length, but expect to encounter some extensive gravel sections where the road is being rebuilt. Highway construction is an ongoing process in the Far North, where the extreme weather is hard on roadways. Services are available at frequent intervals. This chapter is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
