Actually, it may be better than Alaska. Yukon is incredible. Well worth driving up there IMO.

I would say that you have to have a solid co-driver. If you are by yourself, that would be a long slog. There's no cell service... no radio stations... XM is spotty... you need a good passenger to spend the time with and share the driving duties.

Here's both my trips if you want to peruse them (warning: I am a vulgar MF'er). Trip 1 was not as good but by trip 2 we had pulled our shit together.

August 2019 Alaska trip - MeefZah
Nice! Not to thread jack, but I found the western route (Cassiar Hwy) is more scenic than the Alcan, though having done both a couple of times (summer, fall, and winter), either one is epic.

Laird Hot Springs in December is very special, in fact, as you likely agree, there are so many great memories of a road trip of that magnitude it's hard to explain and pictures just don't do justice to what you experience.

It takes a lot of (vacation) days to do a round trip jaunt to Alaska and back if you want to enjoy the scenery and the culture along the way.

My best recommendation: get a physical copy of The Milepost because you need that information when you travel and you may have no communication with the Internet.

I'll post no more on this topic.
