Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
Sure, there may not be many roads in Alaska, but there are an endless amount of natural wonders that can easily be seen from the comfort of your vehicle. If you’re up for a road trip that leads you to some of Alaska’s most incredible vistas and unique landmarks, then look no further. Our Natural Wonders In Alaska Road Trip spans the 310 miles of highway between Eagle River to Valdez. It takes approximately 6 hours and 45 minutes to hit all the sights one way, but if you plan a weekend trip and stay the night in Valdez, you can hit half the stops on the way there and half on the way back. This is one road trip through Alaska that you won’t want to miss!

Is Alaska somewhere you should visit by car?
Absolutely! Alaska is so huge, and getting out and traveling by car will allow you to see things not on the traditional sight seeing tours. You’ll get to eat where the locals go, explore lakes, and mountains, and backcountry not normally seeing by people who live outside of Alaska, and take a chance to slow down and enjoy what’s around you.
Are there many good Alaska road trips?
There are only a few major highways in the state, but there’s definitely plenty to see. Look up certain sights that you couldn’t live without seeing, and plan your own road trip! Or check out our website for more great Alaska road trip ideas.
