Tolovana Hot Springs is a popular Interior Alaska getaway in the winter, but in the summer, it’s fairly empty — meaning tourists who dare to make the 10-mile trek to the springs can have it all to themselves.
Out of state visitation is down at Denali National Park in 2020, due to the COVID-19. This summer, a few lucky Alaskans are getting the chance to ride the road in their own cars -- including KTUU's Roadtrippin' crew.
Hank Davis and Tracy Sinclare got a chance to go Road Trippin’ to Cooper Landing in June. The adventure was Alaska Clearwater Sportfishing’s fly fishing school. Now, the school typically runs for several days but we got a crash course in fly tying, casting and then actually catching fish.
Tidepooling in Kachemak Bay during a low tide is one of this year's RoadTrippn' adventures. While tourists may stay away, the beaches are open for Alaskans to learn more about the marine life of Alaska.
Sometimes the best way to see some of Alaska's greatest sights is to ditch the wheels, grab a paddle and head out on the water. Channel 2's Kristen Durand and Grant Robinson did just that on this Road Trippin' adventure to Seward.
Derek, Grant and Beth have been seeing some spectacular scenery on their trip along the Denali Highway. But, there’s also some charming hospitality stops, such as at the Clearwater Mountain Lodge at Mile 82.
Truckers aren’t the only ones passing through the small community of Coldfoot these days. There are so many tourists driving the Dalton that there’s a visitors center just across the highway from the truck stop.
As far as highways go, this one is certainly among the roads less traveled. Alaska’s legendary Dalton Highway stretches more than 400 miles across the state’s vast Arctic wilderness, crossing rivers and traversing whole mountain ranges on its long journey to Prudhoe Bay.
The Backcountry Jeep and Canoe Safari tour in Ketchikan is part white-knuckle driving, a third lazy paddling on Harriet Hunt lake that turns into a culinary salmon and clam chowder treat, followed by an educational tour through the Tongass National Forest.
