Highlights

Five weeks of riding north to south in Alaska, Canada and USA. Cross the Arctic Circle. Experience the remote tundra, home to caribou, bears and muskox. Head to the monumental icefields in British Columbia. So little traffic and so many perfect miles makes it a pure joy. Not to be outdone, the USA delivers incredible scenery through endless national parks - Yellowstone, Arches and the Grand Canyon.

Riding Conditions

The Dalton Highway present that greatest challenge to the rider, with 800 miles of dirt road there and back. If the weather is against us, the riding is challenging. Once out of Alaska, the riding becomes a delight and is truly "easy rider".

Riders Requirements

Riders must have a full motorcycle licence and should have a minimum of 2 years experience of riding larger bikes. Riders will be riding their own motorcycles, which need to be appropriate and adequate to ride on this type of journey.

Riders must be confident and competent road riders and whilst off-road riding experience is beneficial, it is not essential. What is more important is your own attitude to motorcycle overlanding. You need to be flexible and adaptable if the going gets tough, have the ability to take a positive view to overcome the challenges that riding in developing countries will throw at you and keep a good sense of humor and team spirit.
