Day 1: Anchorage - Palmer (73 km)

Collect your Cruise America motorhome from the Anchorage depot and drive northeast on the Glenn Highway. You'll pass the townships of Eagle River and Chugiak and continue on towards Palmer, which is about an hour's drive from Anchorage. As you head through the Eklutna Flats, enjoy the towering vistas of the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains, and catch a glimpse of Pioneer Peak, the closest peak in the distance. Suggested campsite: Mt. View RV Park, Palmer

Day 2: Palmer - Denali (323 km)

Day 3: Denali

Denali is home to six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Highly recommended is a guided tour into Denali National Park. As you travel into the park you’ll see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,320ft Denali, formerly Mount McKinley. Wild animals large and small roam unfenced lands. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness awaits. Suggested campsite: Riley Creek Campground, Denali Park Village

Today continue on the Parks Highway north to Fairbanks. Accompanied by incredible forest and mountain landscape you’ll drive through the communities of Healy, Nenana and the community of Ester, an old gold mining camp. Suggested campsite: Rivers Edge Resort, Fairbanks

Day 5: Fairbanks

Enjoy a free day today in Fairbanks, Alaska's second largest city. A visit to the Museum of the North is highly recommended. Suggested campsite: Rivers Edge Resort, Fairbanks

Today you head to Glennallen, following the Richardson Highway until Delta Junction. Just outside of Fairbanks you’ll drive by the North Pole, the home of North America's Santa Claus.

Suggested campsite: Tolsona Wilderness Campground, Glennallen

Day 7: Glennallen - Valdez (193 km)

Today you’ll head to Valdez, enjoy the spectacular drive on the Richardson Highway, part of the route parallels the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. Weather permitting stop and enjoy incredible views of the Wrangell Mountains. Drive by Worthington Glacier and through Keystone Canyon with its waterfalls. Valdez is a must see on your Alaska itinerary, the crashing glaciers and towering Chugach mountains rising from the sea make Valdez absolutely picturesque. Suggested campsite: Bear Paw RV Park, Valdez

Day 10: Seward

Spend today at leisure exploring the Kenai Fjords National Park home to some of most pristine, rugged, breathtaking glacial vistas in the USA.
