Alaska RV Travel Destinations
Traveling in an Alaska RV is a great way to explore this beautiful and scenic state at your own pace. For most who aspire to RV through Alaska, it’s the adventure of travel and exploration that is most intriguing. Many plan their trip in great detail, while others choose to “go with the flow” and take a more spontaneous approach. Whichever suits your style, an RV rental in Alaska is the best way to explore the area’s scenic wonders.
RVing in Denali National Park
Over 400,000 brave travelers make their way to Denali National Park each year. Many of the visitors travel in the comfort of an RV in search of wildlife, scenery, solitude, and communion with this charming land. This picturesque 6 million acre park and preserve lies on the north flank of the Alaska Range where Mt. McKinley is located, the highest mountain in North America. Once inside the park, spend your day walking, mountain biking, panning for gold, or simply relaxing and taking in the charming scenery around you. A trip to Denali National Park is a must when traveling by RV in Alaska.
Kluane Lake is the largest lake that lies entirely within the Yukon and a great destination for anyone traveling with an RV rental. It’s 50 miles in length and approximately 500 feet deep, having been carved out by glaciers and filled with ice and snow melt waters. Approaching the lake and the Kluane Mountains in your motorhome rental, you’ll be looking right at Sheep Mountain. Sheep Mountain is the home of hundreds of all-white Dall sheep. Dall sheep graze the alphine tundra for food and make for an amazing site seeing experience. Step out of your motorhome, grab your binoculars or camera and try to spot them!

While exploring the snowy banks, take in the breath-taking landscapes as you travel to Child’s Glacier. Located about 50 miles from the town of Cordova, Child’s Glacier is Alaska’s most spectacular roadside glacier and the only glacier where you can actively observe calving. Calving is when large chunks of a glacier fall into the water below and become icebergs as the glacier slowly moves through the water. You can see calving activity as frequently as every 15 minutes! These falling icebergs sometimes cause a large wave that travels across the river and crashes into the neighboring shore. While this is an amazing site to see, it can be hazardous to those standing too close to the bank. Due to this risk, a platform has been built for the safe viewing of this spectacular ice calving event. Most visitors in search of glaciers will rent an RV between May and September when Child’s Glacier is most active.
Alaska’s Glenn Highway
Travel Northeast of Anchorage on the Glenn Highway in your Alaska RV to enjoy unsurpassed beauty, wildlife viewing and glaciers. Recognized for its cultural, historic, recreational and scenic qualities, the Glenn Highway is a National Scenic Byway in the areas where it travels through the communities of Sutton, Chickaloon, and Glacier View. Glimpses of historic road houses, coal mining operations and an Alaskan Native village still remain.
The Matanuska Glacier, the largest accessible glacier by road in Alaska, is easily viewed from the highway in several areas. Just a bit further up the road by the Grand View Cafe & RV Park, sheep can be observed in their natural habitat within the Sheep Mountain Dall Sheep and Goat Reserve at MP 107-115. Alaska’s large, ample waysides allow RV‘s to pull over safely to capture that special photo or simply take in the scenery. All this and much more can be reached from your Alaska RV rental by way of the Glenn Highway!
