The Interior Travel Guide


Especially if you're interested in getting out into the wilderness or out to one of the villages, we recommend a tour—it's far less stressful, particularly if you'd otherwise be faced with tasks that you've never undertaken before, things like driving remote unpaved roads without knowing how to change a tire or, worse, wandering the backcountry with limited previous Alaska experience.
