A long trip if you take this mostly dirt road, to the top of the states. A truely unique experience unlike any "touristy" thing you can do. It is desolate at times, we drove for hours and did not see another human or vehicle, but...More
We spent 3 days and 3 nights camping about 120 miles south of Deadhorse on the tundra the end of August into September. The first day of nothing but fog, wind, rain/ice. The roads are pretty great up until Coldfoot, but once you pass that...More
If you take a tour that takes you to Coldfoot, then you will definitely get to see the Dalton highway. It is literally in the middle of nowhere. It was built by the oil companies to construct the Alaska pipeline. You’ll even be able to...More
If you have no sense of adventure this is not for you. This trip is very exciting, we did the 2 day trip but there are other options. We used Northern Alaska Tour Company and they are awesome. You can also drive if you dare....More
It's amazing to be able to drive this road with hundreds of miles of wilderness on either side, cross the Yukon River and Arctic Circle, drive up over the Brooks Range, and then across the arctic tundra to Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay on the Arctic...More
When I started planning this, I was excited that my family agreed to take the 3 days to get to Prudhoe Bay and back to Fairbanks and the added cost of the rental that allows you to go on the haul road. Because we went...More
The Dalton HWY is one of the Last Adventure Road in the world. It’s a Gravel Road. Remember in this Road the priority is to the Heavy-Trucks. Just in the Yukon River Camp, Coldfoot Camp and Deadhorse you can find Petrol and a place to...More
I got rented a car with a C.B. radio and a Sat phone along with uprated road springs and off road tyre;s but the drive was easy a few large pot hole's but i saw them and drove round them with ease, the room's at...More

We used North Alaskan Tour Co-they were extremely professional. We used them to book a trip to Coldfoot for the Northern Lights and we were rewarded with 4 days (rather nights) of perfect conditions. Dionges gave great advice above. Note that going above the Arctic Circle is basically a drive up a mostly unpaved road for a photo op at a sign. I'd encourage you to consider more-perhaps checking out a place to stay a bit off the beaten path. Note that the Tour Co also arranges small plane flights to help you get off the beaten path-including points above the Arctic Circle. We recommend them highly.

Yes for sure. I slept on the ground (on a mat of course) right beside my vehicle on one trip up the highway. Alaska in general is very user friendly as to doing this, setting up a tent to camp. Good luck and best wishes. By... More
Yes for sure. I slept on the ground (on a mat of course) right beside my vehicle on one trip up the highway. Alaska in general is very user friendly as to doing this, setting up a tent to camp. Good luck and best wishes. By the way, in the summer months, the mosquitoes are terrible. Should you do this, be sure your tent can protect you from them.

Hi Ben, The road is paved as far as Coldfoot but dirt from there. It should be possible to get there by motorbike. There is camping at Coldfoot but not at Deadhorse as far as I know. There isn't mobile phone coverage and we communicated with other drivers by CB radio. It was to let the trucks know we were there. They have priority. It was very muddy and our car was filthy by the end. You need to go on a bus tour to get to the sea. There is a shop at Deadhorse but don't think it will have tires for your bike. Take spares. I loved the drive and the challenge of it. Would recommend it.
