Destination Guide - MotoQuest's Best of Alaska Tour


This week, we decided to take a page from MotoQuest's book and feature their tour through Alaska. Sure, she may be the long lost state, but she's one of the most beautiful. If you've never had the pleasure of seeing this great piece of America, we recommend doing it ASAP. So why not see it all while on a motorcycle? We certainly can't think of a better way. And this trip is planned for July of next year so you have plenty of time to get all of your moose - er, we mean ducks - in a row. Over to you, MotoQuest:

This 1,600 mile ride is 100% paved and makes a large circle through the south-central part of Alaska. This tour offers the rider the opportunity to experience the diverse areas of Alaska: both coastal and interior. You will ride past the tallest mountains on the continent, visit historical gold rush areas, and ride the epic Thompson Pass in and out of the quaint fishing town of Valdez, Alaska. There will also be the opportunity for the more adventurous to ride to the Arctic Circle! In seven days of riding, you will experience more of Alaska than most Alaskans!
