EAGLERIDER is very excited to offer this tour of the highlights of Alaska. Keeping in mind most people travel to Alaska only once per lifetime, we've put together a tour that will leave you with lasting memories. There is so much beauty and history in this amazing state to take-in. With some luck you'll be able to have spectacular viewpoints such as Denali (Mount McKinley - tallest mountain in North America).. Abundant wildlife along the way makes it even more exciting to possibly see a glimpse of moose, bear, sheep, eagles, and bison. This will be one epic journey and we'd like to share it with you!
Alaskan Summer Motorcycle Tour - Tour Itinerary
Welcome to beautiful Anchorage, Alaska. if you get in early enough you can stroll the town or even take a bicycle along the famous waterfront to possibly see some bear or Moose. Tonight we will take in a great dinner at a local landmark restaurant and prepare for an epic adventure.
We'll grab our motorcycles this morning after breakfast and head south along the Turnagain Arm to start the tour off with a highlight of one of the most scenic roads Alaska has to offer. We'll pass Portage Glacier and Kenai Lake before we get into the famous town of Seward. You can take a little hike up to Exit Glacier or even find a boat tour to view all the glaciers in the Prince William Sound. This city is bustling as it's one of the major ports for the cruise lines.
We'll return right back from where we came taking in the same beautiful views and pass through Anchorage to stay in a little quirky town of Talkeetna, where a cat was their Mayor. The Susitna River and Talkeetna River come together here to make for a landmark location for fishing and other outdoor recreation.
We head north on the Parks Highway as beautiful Denali park sits just to the west and offers breathtaking views. Hopefully the weather cooperates so we can get a glimpse of Denali towering above the other mountains. We keep our trek north to Fairbanks we'll overnight.
Today is your day to rest or explore. Today you will have an opportunity to head to the Arctic Circle and take a photo to show all of your friends and family. It's a long days ride but worth it!
The Richardson Highway follows the Tanana river for many miles. Tonight you will be staying on the Denali Highway. The Denali Highway connects and Parks and Richardson Highway and is mostly dirt/grave. The section you will be riding to the hotel is completely paved though. The Denali Highway is bustling with campers and hunters as it's a paradise to out in the middle of the bush to have your own space.
We'll wander down the Richardson Highway more today and take it til it dead ends in the awesome town of Valdez. Worthington Glacier will greet you as take this ride down to Valdez and will offer plenty of photo opportunities. Valdez is the end of the Alaska pipeline and also has a popular bear viewing spot where they feast on fish.
We will ride back over Thompson Pass to make our way onto the Glenn Highway, which is full of even more amazing views. One of the largest ice-fields and mountains sit just south and offer you breathtaking views of glaciers and rustic mountains. You'll get a up-close look at the Matanuska Glacier which is one of the most accessible glaciers.
We'll ride back into Anchorage and after we drop-off our motorcycles we will gather together for our final dinner and raise our glasses to an incredible journey, lifelong memories, and most importantly, the kind of friendships that can only be forged on the road.
