Alaska Self-Drive Vacations

Despite the allure of scenic train and bus travel packages, many visitors to Alaska prefer the freedom and fun of driving themselves. Since these packages often go beyond where trains travel, they give you the chance to explore towns like Valdez or Cooper Landing and distant national parks like Wrangell-St. Elias. Our self-drive packages include a rental car plus all accommodations and activities so that you can travel as you please, while still enjoying a well-planned itinerary. They can also be an economical option for large groups of four or more traveling together.

Each of the below travel packages gives visitors plenty of time to travel between destinations, leaving space to stop at pullouts for pictures, grab coffee at roadside cafés, and discover many other hidden gems along Alaska's scenic highways.

There are two rental categories available, a standard rental car or a premium 4x4 rental. You can do plenty with a standard rental, especially if Denali National Park, Seward, Fairbanks, and even off-the-beaten-path places like Girdwood and Homer are on your must-see list. A premium 4x4 rental gives you access to remote gravel thoroughfares in Alaska like the Denali Highway and McCarthy Road. Another benefit of a 4x4 rental is the convenient one-way drop-off option. You can pick up your rental in Anchorage and drop off in Fairbanks or vice-versa, giving you more time to travel without having to "backtrack" on highways you've already explored.

All of our trip packages are fully customizable. You can upgrade your vehicle type, add destinations, and change your activities. Our staff of local Alaskans is happy to work with you to create your ideal Alaskan vacation.

If you like the idea of traveling with a dedicated guide and group, check out our escorted tour packages. You can also use our Trip Finder to search for travel packages that include specific destinations, things to do, and types of transportation.
