For such an enormous state, Alaska has only four major highways making up a mere 1,082 miles of road. Stretching from the Canadian border to the east, north toward the Arctic Circle, or south along the Kenai Peninsula to Seward or Homer, these roads do have official letter-number designations, though you will find that most locals call them by their nicknames. Whether you're traversing the Seward Highway in southcentral or the Parks Highway up to Denali National Park, you can be assured of a road trip like no other.

To take in the scenery from Alaska's roadways, the Park Connection Motorcoach is a popular bus tour option, with summer service between Denali Park, Talkeetna, Anchorage, and Seward. Many of our guests combine this service with a train trip on the Alaska Railroad. There are also many bus tour opportunities for local sightseeing available in most Alaska destinations we serve. Depending on the tour, many are operated in mini-buses or large passenger vans.
