Book your customized RV trip of a lifetime today!
We are often asked what makes us different? While not an easy question to answer, here are a few of the reasons our guest have shared with us.
All caravan companies offer tours in their packages but when comparing cost make sure to look at what tours they are charging you for. Can you remove things you don't want to do and get a credit? Will they book things you want to do or just hand you a phone number to call? Are you doing tours with local Alaskan's or with cruise ship companies? What type of tours are they? Will you be flying? Seeing Alaska from the air is a completely different perspective that you should do at least once. This is a bucket list trip for most, shouldn't it be the best trip possible?
Do they give you radios? Being able to communicate during the drive and entering the campground removes stress.
What about campgrounds? Do they stay at the best or the cheapest? Will you ever get 50amp? Do you get the prime sites at the campground or the ones in the back?
What other services do they include? How many nights do you stay at each stop? Will you be with the same group the whole time or do they combine groups? Do people ever leave during their trip? Why?
If they are including meals, what type of meals? Are they steak and halibut or dogs and beans?
What about your pets? Do they offer pet walking?
These are just a few questions you should ask when comparing to make sure you find the right fit for you and to make sure you receive VALUE for your money.
Have you ever noticed the difference in service when you go to a restaurant that is owner operated? Cindy and Jim are the owners but more importantly they also are the Wagon Masters. They travel with you and share the many extras that can only be learned by traveling up and back over 17 times as of 2023. From making sure the camp space is the best fit for your RV, to sharing local spots to visit, the whole trip is filled with extra details that make it more enjoyable and special. One of the ways we are able to do this is we limit the number of RV's traveling with us to 16 guest rigs (not the 25-30 that most other caravans are doing)
When we started our company, the goal was to show the best of Alaska. One of the ways we stand out is the amount of time in Alaska that we provide. Out of the 63 days you are with us you will be in Alaska for 51 of them, well more then any other group. We also stay longer at most of our stops, giving you plenty of time to relax and explore. We achieve this by having you meet us in Dawson Creek, a town easy to reach with plenty of cell service and all other services. We take over where the road gets a bit more remote!
With our company the Wagon Master is more then just the person who leads. Our jobs as Wagon Master's are to leave first, arrive first. Have everything ready when you arrive and help answer questions before and after the drive. Guide you to places to visit, eat, or take care of things (laundry, propane, ect).
Make sure when you are talking to companies about going with them to ask what experience their wagon masters have with the Alaska Highway? How many trips have they made on it? How many times have they been a wagon master? Sadly not all companies send experienced guides, which leaves unhappy guest at the end.
Thousands of RVer’s go to Alaska every year, many on their own. It is a place that will leave you in awe but it is also immense. Did you know that Alaska is bigger then Texas, California, and Montana combined? Yet only 20% of it is accessible by road, and even less by RV. This is why we make sure that you get off the roads and out into what makes Alaska special.
Why a caravan, why ours? The best reasons our past guest have given...less stress, great friendships that go beyond Alaska, seeing places they would not have thought visiting on their own, trying adventures outside their normal comfort zone that left them with memories they really appreciate having, “love the drive book”, comfort knowing that if something goes wrong they have someone to make sure they get to somewhere safe to get fixed, having someone lead who has driven their own RV up and back seven times, helpful restaurant guide, “we would have paid more and still felt we got a deal”, and one of my favorites “I miss not having to figure out what’s next” said when we ran into one of our guest after the caravan in the lower 48.
Have you been dreaming of making a trip to Alaska but are not sure where to start? Have you started planning only to realize that there are so many details to plan and you are worried you may miss something? Do you prefer to get the best Value in life? If you said yes they you should go with us. We pack the trip with the best RV parks, the best excursions, and our passion to share Alaska in a way that will have you falling in love with it.
Let us make sure that you don’t miss anything, that you experience the local culture, see the beauty beyond the roads, and leave with the memories of a lifetime.

Our Spring tour starts May 18th in Dawson Creek, BC and ends July 18th in Dawson Creek, BC. Our Summer trip starts July 20th in Dawson Creek, BC and ends September 19th in Dawson Creek,BC.

Everything is big in Alaska except our RV caravan! Be part of an intimate group.
So why should you choose to join our caravan? Is this the right caravan for you?
Our goal is to help you maximize the experience while minimizing the stress. Our groups will be small with no more then 15 rigs plus the wagonmaster. This gives us more time with each of you so that we can make sure you have the best experience possible. This tour is for those looking for a more independent tour with all of the stress of planning and booking taken care of.
Our pricing is tiered to fit different budgets and levels of activity. Our Bronze level offers more adventures then any other caravan coming to Alaska but still leaves open days to do your own thing. The Silver tour adds some really special events and experiences that we feel shouldn’t be missed but again you will have time to do your own thing. The Gold tour is pulling out all the stops to give you the Ultimate Alaska trip!
While we will have some days inside, most of our adventures are meant to get you OUT into Alaska, see and smell Alaska in ways that most will never experience, and experience Alaska the way that has made us keep returning year after year.
We take the stress out of the trip. We will take care of planning, scheduling, booking, and reconning the areas. We will provide 5 special dinners to celebrate and multiple box & buffet lunches, long range radios so we can share points of interest/history as well as keep in touch, and free pet walking/watching while you are on the included tours with the option to add pet walking on other days for a small fee. While on the trip you will be given individualized schedules based on our conversations of things that are important to you. Some people love history, some adventure, some culture, etc. We will help build the dream vacation and make sure to help you experience things you may never have thought to do. Ride behind a team of huskies, pull in a monster halibut, listen to the whales sing or the ice burst loose from a glacier, go back in time to a native village, or get up close with a grizzly bear...
If you want the best Alaska has to offer then check out what is included in our tours. With two caravans and three levels of pricing we will make this the trip of a lifetime. With or without a caravan, Alaska is an expensive trip, wouldn’t you like to make it the best experience possible?
