  • Alaska 2023

    We have a few more working years but plan on doing Alaska in 2023. We have a granddaughter graduating that May and most likely won't make it to the Canadian border until mid June. Would that be too late?

    Heck no, i made the trip in 2018, crossed into Canada on the 7th of June. There is lots of time left in the season, I had to be back in early September so left a few things undone but will be returning in a couple years to do it again.

      The 'prime tourist months' for Alaska are June-July-August. May and September are usually nice, but cold / freezing weather is more of a possibility. Be prepared for weather in any month.

      The Alaska Highway is open year round, but almost all RV parks, provincial parks, fuel stations and smaller businesses close due to harsh freezing & lack of tourists, after September and don't open until May 1st.

      We usually hit the Canada border (in Washington state) the 1st of June, traveling through Canada to Alaska and back (2-3 month travel length).

      Here's a few ideas on where to stay and what to see, from our 2019 and 2017 Alaska trips:

        We drove up in 2018 arriving at the Canadian border in Montana the end of June, spend Canada Day, July 1, in Cochrane (outside Calgary). Plenty of time to enjoy the trip through Canada and Alaska. You can follow our adventure at
