Discover The Breathtaking Scenery of Alaska
Crisp, icy lakes. Jagged, rocky shoreline. Ever-snowy mountain peaks. With endless beauty but harsh weather, it's no wonder Alaska is known far and wide as "The Last Frontier". A haven for nature-lovers and adventure-seekers, the 49th state offers some of the most breathtaking scenery, incredible camping, rugged hiking and invigorating fishing known to man. But how can you make the most of this diverse, memorable landscape during the long, cold winters?
Summertime, Wintertime or Anytime, Anchorage Motorhomes are your Best Friend
Imagine backpacking through old-growth timber, salmon fishing along serene Pacific coastline or snowshoeing across the North Country all day - then coming back to your warm and cozy home on wheels each night. With heat, electricity, kitchens and baths, a motorhome from our Anchorage station has everything you need to ward off winter chills - even in the icy Alaskan climate.
Trips in Anchorage
No Alaska RV road trip is complete without spending time in the city of Anchorage. Backed by the Chugach Mountains and surrounded by national forest on one side and water on the other, this city of 350,000 residents is an island in a sea of natural elements - and a beautiful one at that. In the summer they call it the city of flowers, The blooms are so big because of the midnight sun - it's a short, intense growing season.
For a cultural experience, take your Anchorage RV rental to the Alaska Native Heritage Center, where you'll find historical and contemporary exhibits on the native peoples of Alaska, from American Indians to Eskimos. They have native artists there who are working on carving or doll making. It's a great immersion way to see what life was like for them, and what life still continues to be.
Trips to the North of Anchorage
Head north from the city on Glenn Highway with your Anchorage RV rental and you'll enter a fisherman's paradise in no time at all: Palmer, just 40 miles northeast. You can get a fishing charter lined up ahead of time.
If you're feeling adventurous, head to the historic village of Talkeetna, around 120 miles north of Anchorage at the base of Mount McKinley, North America's tallest peak. The jumping-off spot for experienced climbers heading up the mountain, Talkeetna also offers recreation for those less prepared to scale mountaintops. You can get a flightseeing trip and fly around the peaks of Mount McKinley.
Finally, no Anchorage RV rental vacation is complete without dog sledding. Head to Wasilla, just 10 miles from Palmer, for the Iditarod headquarters, where you can ride on a go-kart behind a team of sled dogs and tour the dog-mushing museum.
RV Trips South of Anchorage
Drive south in your Anchorage RV rental and you'll discover the Kenai Peninsula, where every month has a rush of different Salmon. From Russian River Reds to the Kenai Kings, this is the ideal place for a fishing trip in Anchorage, Alaska. Known for its Russian Orthodox roots, the peninsula is also home to distinctive blue onion-dome churches - and, like much of the state, excellent seafood options.
Try Homer, an arts community-slash-fishing town, for stunning ocean views and fun, friendly locals. Or take your Anchorage RV rental to Whittier, 75 miles southwest of Anchorage, for a marine life-filled day cruise.
Finally, Seward, around two hours from Anchorage, is a must-see on your Alaska summer vacation trip. Even on the rainy days, it's breathtakingly beautiful. If you don't have any money, you can just walk the docks. Seward has the Alaska SeaLife Center, where there's marine research going on, but it's also a living museum.
For great wintertime thrills, try one of these unique Alaskan vacations with your new RV from our great stock of Anchorage motorhomes:
Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race
This annual March event traverses 1,150 miles of the world's most breathtaking - and rough - terrain. For 10 to 17 days, competitors mush from Anchorage to Nome, facing icy tundra, frigid winds and craggy rocky passes. Join the 250,000 spectators for the fun and thrills with your motorhome from Cruise America.
Aurora Borealis Viewing
Also known as the Northern Lights, this natural phenomenon enchants Alaska visitors and locals alike. Usually best viewed in late fall or early spring, these brilliant, undulating ribbons of light illuminate the night sky with shades of green, red, orange and yellow, producing a vibrant glow as they dance across the horizon. Take your RV away from city lights for the best viewing opportunities.
After you visit the Iditarod races, catch the fever for yourself. Join a seasoned guide in the foothills of Mount McKinley for a day of dog sledding with a well-trained team, then top the afternoon off with warm cocoa and a restful evening in your RV.
