The Alaska Highway is synonymous with grand adventure. A US war effort, it is 1,523 miles long and was built by a workforce of 30,000 over 9 brutal months in 1942. From Mile 0 in Dawson Creek to the terminus in Fairbanks, Alaska, the route offers amazing scenery and wildlife viewing. The highway is also sprinkled with unique stops and quirky characters.
