Alaska travel guide

Alaska - The Bush (Chapter)

10th Edition Apr 2012

This is The Bush chapter from Lonely Planet’s Alaska guidebook.

In a state where wilderness is the norm, the Bush is like the frontier on the frontier. Towns are few, roads are fewer, and most of the region is accessible only by flying, floating or walking in. Yes, it takes effort to reach the ends of the earth, but the rewards are equal to the task. In western Alaska, head out on extended backpacks or wilderness paddles, swagger through Nome’s gold-rush saloons or fly into isolated Native villages. In Arctic Alaska, explore the mythical vastness of preserves like Gates of the Arctic National Park and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • View some of the world’s most intriguing wildlife, including polar bears, musk ox, and caribou
  • maps
  • Explore Nome’s gold rush history then hit the highway for stunning Arctic scenery and endless hiking and camping opportunities
  • transport
  • restaurants & accommodation
  • Drive the famed Dalton Highway, aka the Haul Road, to the edge of the world
  • Touch base with the Arctic Ocean and stand at the top of America in Barrow

Coverage includes: Western Alaska, Nome & around, Arctic Alaska, Dalton Highway, Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve and Barrow.
