Alaska Road Trip

Take a yellow school bus, remodel it into an overland vehicle and bring together a small group of adventure travellers to explore the wilderness on an awesome Alaska road trip.

Add to this amazing views and encounters with an abundance of wildlife, glaciers and volcanoes. Enjoy the ride and take pictures out of our big windows, play cards or games on the tables and join in the group adventure preparing dinner with us around the campfire.

Alaska, often called “The Last Frontier” has been the crown jewel for adventure travellers in North America. There are many misconceptions of unbearable and impassable weather conditions but this couldn’t be further from the truth. During the summers in Alaska, you’ve got 18-20 hours of sunlight and average daytime temperatures between 58-77 F (14-25 C).

This Alaska road trip adventure is focused on the highlights of the region with optional activities of halibut/salmon fishing, sea kayaking, ice climbing, glacier walks, rafting, horseback riding and scenic flights. View glaciers and icebergs near or from afar and trail blaze through the wilds.

As a small company the owners also lead all of the trips themselves, as they absolutely love everything about overlanding.

Throughout the summers they bring together a small group of adventure travellers to explore the wilderness of Alaska, Canada, and Western America in an old school bus they remodeled and got back on the road.

The owners are a really passionate pair who aren’t interested in ticking boxes and rushing from campsite to campsite. Their amazing overland vehicle gives the group flexibility. If they find a beautiful place during the day and the weather is great they might decide for an extended lunch break and go for a short hike or just relax in the sun. If it is pouring down with rain they know where to find the visitor centre, a great cafe to hang out or the hidden local history museum.

Overlanding-style trips offer the right mixture of meeting lots of like-minded people, but having the freedom to make your own choices and being involved in the adventure: You can get the camp fire started yourself if you like to but you can also rely on your tour leaders organising a bunch of stuff which you don’t want to deal with on your holidays.
