Alaska road trip

Vast areas of Alaska lie beyond the reach of any road, but we’ve put together a driving route, best tackled in two weeks, that takes in mountains and glaciers, roadside food stops and more, at the heart of this mighty state.

ANCHORAGE TO TALKEETNA

Anchorage Museum

£

(anchoragemuseum.org; 625 C St) This is Anchorage's cultural jewel: the flagship exhibit is the Smithsonian Arctic Studies Center, with more than 600 Alaska Native objects, such as art, masks and household implements. Nearby is the Listening Space, where you can listen to storytellers and natural sounds from Arctic Alaska.

Independence Mine State Historical Park

(dnr.alaska.gov/parks/units/indmine.htm; Hatcher Pass)

The main attraction of Hatcher Pass is an abandoned 1930s gold mine sprawled out in a 272-acre alpine valley, with meadows and hiking trails to explore around the mine; it's a mountainous wonderland filled with an odd mix of alpine flowers and mine tailings.

X Moose's Tooth Brewpub

PIZZA

££

(moosestooth.net; 3300 Old Seward Hwy, Anchorage)

This institution serves two-dozen custom-brewed beers, including monthly specials. There are nearly 40 gourmet pizzas on the menu, including plenty of veggie pies.

X Yak & Yeti

TIBETAN

(yakandyetialaska.com; 3301 Spenard Rd, Anchorage)

Billing itself as 'Himalayan' cuisine, Yak & Yeti serves delicious Indian, Nepalese and Tibetan dishes, including momos (Tibetan dumplings) and curries. No alcohol is served, but you can bring your own. The owners also run a cafe in the Northern Lights mall.
