The Milepost is an 800+ page book that breaks down every highway in Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon Territory, and the Western Northwest Territories of Canada by miles. If there is a fishing hole, campground, gas station, scenic spot, or hot springs, the Milepost lists it and describes and displays it on one of its 100 maps. It includes proposed itineraries, the Alaska ferry system schedule, and a large Alaska/Canada region pull-out map.
All the Vans now have Bluetooth/USB enabled stereos to assist you with GPS navigation or listening to your favorite songs or POD cast on your adventure.
Because taxes are already included in the price, the price listed is the price you pay. The only additional costs you will incur are for the other items you would like to rent (optional items) and a 130.00 dollar cleaning and re-stock fee. The cleaning and re-stock fee covers car washes, oil replacement, sheets, linen replacement, camp chair replacement, etc. This fee allows us to professionally clean the vans and replace any items not in 5-star condition upon your return. This is so we can provide the best product possible to the next customer.

No. The vast open country of Alaska and Canada offers for many places to camp outside of a campground but we do ask that you do not camp in the areas marked with “No Parking” or “No Camping” signs. Many free camping spots are listed in the Milepost. Please respect the environment and do not leave any trash behind when you depart. Although staying in a campground is not required, we encourage you to take advantage of the public facilities at a reasonable cost at each location. Each van includes a “Quick Reference” sheet that lists the facilities provided at each campground within a destination city.
It is not required although, during the salmon fishing season, many campgrounds located on the Kenai Peninsula (i.e. Russian River Campground) have a tendency to fill up very quickly, so reservations are highly encouraged.
