tour details pricing and dates day by day itinerary photos
The Northern Expedition is for those who want to ride the most remote stretches of dirt highway on the North American continent. We will be focusing on our goal: Prudhoe Bay, and searching out adventurous side-trips on old mining roads along the tour route. The riding is 50% paved, 50% dirt. If you are interested is seeing the real Alaska this IS the tour! Are you up for a world-class motorcycle adventure?

See wild-life, ride unmapped mining roads, and meet colorful "sourdough" locals. We will be staying in hotels, historic roadhouses, and industrial containers (that's all they have in Deadhorse!). Get your gear ready, we are headed North!
