Route Overview

Dalton Highway is known as one of the ultimate road trip in United States, Alsaka. It is the longest serviceless road in North of America and also one of the most isolated which means there is hardly any traffic on road with no gas stations, restaurants, hotels or any other basic services to be found. Words would not do justice if we describe the beauty of the road.

Dalton Highway is a 414 - mile road which begins at the Elliott Highway, north of Fairbanks, and ends at Deadhorse near the Arctic Ocean and the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. This strecth reaches a highest altitude of 4,739 feet as it crosses the Brooks Range at Atigun Pass. The ideal time to plan your trip would be anywhere in the middle of the year. There ae only 3 town along this route so if you are planning your trip to this magnificient stretch do not forget to pack up plenty of supplies. 

Since this road was built specially for trucks and heavy vehicles the road kicks up thick clouds of dust, mud and gravel by the vehicles ahead of you, which significantly reduces visibility. Hence the rider needs to concentrate 100% all the time, so we would recommend that you watch your speed at every step.

Great scenery on the stretch to Atigun Pas, watch the craters in the paved sections from frost heaves, gravel north of Coldfoot. It is a worthwhile road to ride!
