Your Alaska road trip guide

Have you driven the Golden Circle?

The Golden Circle includes the Road to Emerald Lake from Skagway through Carcross to Emerald Lake. Instead of turning back for Skagway after seeing Emerald Lake, you keep driving to Whitehorse, Yukon. From this small frontier city, you turn westwards toward Alaska, and then then south back toward Skagway via Haines. It’s an amazing trip that’s doable in a couple of days or a week, your choice. I highly recommend it!

I’ve driven all of the pieces of the Golden Circle route but never as one trip. It’s on my bucket list. Here’s a great article that describes some of what the trip is like.
