Vancouver to Alaska Road Trip Advice

Jump to last reply

Hello guys, Im new to this forum.
Im from Ireland, and have always wanted to see Alaska. My wife and I are planning a trip to Canada and Alaska next April 2011. And Id appreciate any advice on our initial route we are planning.
1. Fly into Vancouver, we have relatives there. Stay 1 or 2 nights.
2. Road Trip north into Yukon/Alaska. This is where id appreciate some advice.
The general idea is to spend 12 days travelling North hopefully, as far as Fairbanks/Denali National Park.
First question, is this achievable in 12 days?
Along the way we would hope as our first main stop, to stay in Prince George, and visit Monkman Provincial Park & Barkerville.
Second question, google maps says 10 hours for this journey, so I guess a nights stay somewhere in between would be appropriate?? Any suggestions? Kamloops maybe?
Second stop, we are thinking of maybe Dawsons Creek, Mile Zero.
After that, the plan is to drive the Alaska Highway through, Fort Nelson, then Liard Hot Springs/Muncho Lake.
After that, Watson Lake and on to Whitehorse.
Then on through Haines Junction and on to Tok.
After that its either a choice of Anchorage or Fairbanks depenmding on where we can get flights home out of. With a visit to Denali thrown in for good measure.
What do people think of the above?
Is it achievable in 12 days? Any commenst would be greatly welcomed.
Are there any of these roads likely to be closed in the last two weeks of April?

Thank you.
