Not sure if this should go here or the trip planning forum. Looking for advice on getting to AK I'm thinking about a 3-4 week riding trip in alaska. I'm coming from northern california. I'd kinda like to skip to 40-50h ride to alaska, just so I could have more time in alaska. But maybe I would be missing out on something. Looking at the options: The ferry from Bellingham to Haines is $1500 w/ bike according to the reservation website. Shipping seems like it might be about $900 for air freight from an online calculator from Seattle, but I don't know if there are any extras. I can't find any online quotes for truck shipping. And then there are the crating hassles, etc. Renting a KLR looks like about $100/day + $500 supplement for the Dalton hwy, so $3500. Riding in assuming seattle start would take me probably 5-6 days at my pokey pace, so let's say 11 days spent just getting there. The ferry might be the most fun option for me. But with the extra wear and tear on my bike, maybe just flying in to ANC and renting would be well worth it, assuming there's a bike available. The big question for me is riding in. Is there enough to see and such that spending 11 days getting there would be worth it? Any other option or subtlety that I may have missed? Thank you.
