The ultimate one month road trip itinerary to The Yukon and Alaska

In August 2022, I began driving from The Yukon into Alaska. I documented just about the entire month and you can find the mini vlog series on my Instagram.


I am working towards recapping my itinerary and the adventures I had on the blog. This page here will become the master blog post leading to each section. Of course, there is a wealth of information on the internet already, so I have focused on details from my personal experience and directing you to my favourite resources. I hope you will find this helpful in dreaming up a trip of your own!
