Alaska Discovery RV Tours are 37 days long, beginning in Hazelton, British Columbia and ending in Kenai, Alaska. Our routes are carefully planned and organized to show you the most attractions at a comfortable pace. You will see all the sights British Columbia, Yukon and Alaska have to offer, including:
Majestic Mountains and Glaciers
We also include the famous and beautiful Kenai Peninsula as part of the tour. Click on the Tour Itinerary link on the left to see a detailed breakdown of our tour.
By the end of the 37 days, you will have seen all of RVing in Alaska. You may then choose to continue exploring and re-visiting your favorite places in Alaska (as many do) before going home in small friendly groups, or you may follow us back down the ALCAN to the starting point where we will meet our next tour.
Many Alaska caravan tours require that you return with the caravan to the starting point before you have really finished seeing and enjoying Alaska. However, with us you truly will see and do more… plus, we really do have more fun than anyone else!
During our tour, new places and experiences await you every day. To help you fully appreciate and prepare for the things you will see and experience, we provide daily orientation meetings and frequent lectures by Spike Fortier, our Research Historian and Wagon Master. And our tour narration is second to none - in fact, we are the only Alaska caravan tour company that narrates as we drive! We also provide you with strip maps as we lead you personally through the course of the tour.
All pets are welcomed on our tours - we are animal lovers ourselves! We provide pet walkers and watchers for no charge when you are on the longer tours so you can relax and enjoy yourself knowing that your pet’s needs are also being attended to.
Traveling with us will relieve you of unnecessary stress and help you avoid potential problems. For example, in the event of a breakdown, you will not be stranded in an unfamiliar area. Our Tail Gunner and mechanic will stay with you until you are up and running and able to rejoin the group.
We prepare all vehicles for the trip by screening radiators, applying Transit-Shield where needed and performing a full inspection at no charge. Transit-Shield is also available for a front wrap on Class A's and 5th wheels for a small fee.
The cost of the tour is $7,645. and includes narration and lectures, RV park accommodations, tours, attractions, events, and guide fees. However, we will refund you for designated tours or events you are unable to or don't want to attend. Your final cost could easily be less than this amount! Click on the Tour Itinerary link on the left for more information. Also, further savings are likely because we also arrange for bulk fuel discounts at all designated Fuel Stations along the tour route.
You will experience 37 days of smooth and unhurried beauty, culture and history, all while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow tour members and the exemplary personal attention that is the hallmark of Alaskan Discovery RV Tours.

Many Alaska Caravan tours are fixed priced. The problem with this approach is that you cannot take advantage of reduced rates and all events must be paid in advance with no refund if unable to attend. There is no accounting of where or how much you have paid for anything. With us, you are refunded any paid tours you choose or unable to attend. Just give us prior notice.
