    No doubt it is an icon of Alaska, explore it becomes parallel to the Pipe Line, pipeline that transports oil from the Arctic sea. For this access to the Arctic circle and also the highest point, Atigus Pas. We must walk with respect and care, many trucks loaded at high speed, with parts of gravel and wells. The views are a bit monotonous. Once in a while there are public baths.

    Obvious to handle it in summer is very different to do it in winter as 'Ice truckers' program is still an amazing experience. Majestic views, wooded landscapes and tundra accompany you on this journey. I did not do the full tour. Wiseman to reach and return. Still was a 270-mile drive only from ida. Take your precautions, it is not an easy road. It is dirt, loose gravel, large bumps and potholes. And if you add that trucks that handle this road. I do not recommend it so you drive it with your family. If you want to live this experience with them. Better take a tour that takes you along the road. If you think about it in handle, check your spare tire and check your gasoline. In summer season you can load gasoline in the Yukon. Leaving Fairbanks you can load in Fox or later at the Hilltop store, then you can load gasoline in Yukon River Camp and then up to Coldfoot. If you follow in front, there is a gas station in the following 240 miles, until you reach Deadhorse. So you take your precautions, handled carelessly and learn how to change a tire. There is no cell phone on the road, there are a limited number of latrines in the road, which are quite dirty. And your options for eating on the road are Yukon River Camp, Coldfoot, Wiseman and Deadhorse. Visit the Coldfoot visitor center.

    The note and feared Dalton is an adventure. The road is long and rough road, but long stretches of tarmac, too (at least up to the Polar circle), so aside from a few potholes even easily passable. The only unknown factor is represented by the fact that it is completely obscured by cell phone, so if anything happens, there's no way to communicate and considering that hardly anyone is likely to stay on hold for a long time. The Council is, or go along with one of organized tours (we did this and it was refreshing because the guide explains all about the construction of the road and that you come across) or rent a car equipped with a cb radio in the appropriate sites Fairbanks, so that you can communicate in case of necessity, unless you have a sat phone. To do it!
