     Our most challenging All-Alaskan Tour, the Bicycle Alaska Tour has six days that average 70 miles of bicycling.  Our route has views of Mt. McKinley, visits Fairbanks, and is highlighted by a 300-mile bicycle ride down the spectacular Richardson Highway. The Richardson Highway runs from the center of the state to the coast, almost in a straight line. This gives you the opportunity to see the different climate zones, mountains, and river basins of the Alaskan interior and Southcentral Alaska.   Taking us far from comercialized ‘tourist’ areas, in our opinion it is the most scenic, low traffic, paved highway in the state. We return to the Anchorage area via a cruise across Prince William Sound
 
All together, this tour gives you the best-detailed overview of Alaska possible in this amount of time.

Day 1: After breakfast in Anchorage, we van north beyond the population centers and down the Parks Highway into the wilderness. We bicycle along the Parks Highway toward Mt. McKinley and Denali National Park. The road passes along the south face of Mt. McKinley and offers excellent vistas of the mountain and the other peaks and glaciers of the Alaska Range. We rise above treeline at Broad Pass (only 2,200 feet!) where we have a magnificent view of the Alaska Range to the left and front, and see a beautiful series of glacial valleys in the Talkeetna Range to the right. We ride to our cabins at the Perch Restaurant, near the Entrance of Denali National Park. Total bicycling 54 miles.

Day 2: We  mount our bicycle for a beautiful ride along the Nenana River, through the backbone of the Alaska Range. We pass the headquarters of Denali National Park, then exit the park through the Nenana River Canyon.  At the mouth of the canyon the land opens up and we enter the vast forest of the great Alaskan interior.  We continue paralleling the Nanana River to the town of Nenana.  We then van to dinner and our rooms in Fairbanks.   Totaly Cycling 80 miles

Day 3: Our tour of the Richardson Highway begins with a 75-mile ride from the outskirts of Fairbanks to Delta Junction. The road winds along the magnificent, wild Tanana River as it flows through the interior of Alaska on its way to join the Yukon. The warm weather and thick forest here are typical of the huge Alaskan Interior. As we cross the Tanana River, we get an excellent view of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Ahead looms the mighty Alaska Range, highlighted by Mt. Deborah (12,339 ft.) and Mt. Hayes (13,832 ft).  Total bicycling 75 miles.

Day 4: We leave Delta Junction and began the gradual climb up the glacial Delta River toward Isabel Pass. Passing through the Alaska Range, we see huge ice fields on either side of the road. Enormous mineral fields color the mountains in different hues of red, gray and brown. We ride along beautiful Summit Lake, only 3,000 feet in elevation, yet well above treeline. Total bicycling 68 miles.

Day 5: Leaving the Alaska Range behind us, we pass Paxson Lake and drop into the Copper River Basin. We pass many small rivers and lakes as the road parallels the Gulkana River. Moose, caribou, and trumpeter swans are common sights in this area. We stop for dinner at the historic Gakona Lodge (built in 1906). Total bicycling 70 miles.

Day 6: We wind our way up the Tsaina River, toward Thompson Pass. On the way we stop off at Worthington Glacier, only yards from the road! Thompson Pass is only 2,678 feet, but far above treeline, and the views from here are truly spectacular. Don't forget your camera! We now drop 2,500 feet in six miles into the Lowe River Valley. Following the Lowe River, we ride through the vertical rock walls and numerous waterfalls of Keystone Canyon. We spend the night in Valdez, port for the Alaska State Ferry, and across the bay from the Trans - Alaska Pipeline Terminal.  Total bicycling 58 miles.

Day 7: We wake up early and board a ship of the Alaska Marine Highway for an unforgettable trip across Glacier studded Prince William Sound. We leave the ship in Whittier, and board a shuttle for a fifteen-minute ride UNDER the Chugach Mountains to Portage.  From Portage, we van back to Anchorage and say farewell.
