PRUDHOE BAY ADVENTURE
Bragging rights for riding an adventure touring motorcycle to the northernmost motorable point in North America don’t come easy, and this ride certainly does not appeal to everyone. If Prudhoe Bay is on your bucket list, we’re here to support your trip-of-a-lifetime and have some raucous laughs along the way. On our first day of riding, we’re heading directly to the midpoint of the unpaved Denali Highway so you can test out those big-block tires before we hit the haul road.
Once we’re on the Dalton Highway, expect the road conditions to change constantly: gravel, dirt, slick mud, and segments of damaged chip-seal you’ll wish they’d just left as dirt. What the road quality lacks, the scenery and wildlife more than makes up for! North of the Arctic Circle, keep an eye out for brown bear, caribou, musk ox, Dall sheep, and the extremely rare mud-crusted Winnebago.
We will be staying at hotels, remote lodges and rugged work camps. That’s all they have in Deadhorse!
Road Conditions: 1,885 mile route consisting of 60% good paved highways to 40% dirt highways to slippery muddy roads. The Dalton Highway to Prudhoe Bay is no Sunday drive and riders should be aware that the conditions of the roadway can change instantly and constantly.
