Last summer traveler and photographer, Alex Strohl, and his wife, Andrea, went on an Alaskan road trip with the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
They started in Whitefish, Montana and drove on the Alaska Highway (or ALCAN). Andrea had never been to Alaska before, and Alex was excited to go back.
The Alaska Highway goes through some very remote parts of British Columbia and Yukon. However, that provided plenty of opportunity for incredible views. Alex and Andrea were not disappointed by the snow-capped mountains, wildflowers, or bear, moose, or caribou sightings.
“Carving through Northern BC, southwestern Yukon, and the heart of West Alaska was fascinating, watching the ever-changing landscape shift over the long and impossibly diverse highway is something that you can only experience in a vehicle,” Alex said.
The Land Rover Discovery Sport was the perfect vehicle for the Strohls. It allowed them the freedom to move as they please and search for interesting stops. Alex said that they “would try to find an impossible mountain trail with potential for good views, swimming holes off the road, or camping spots in the hills.”
Alex also said that the comfortable cabin, panoramic moon roof, and quality sound system of the Land Rover Discovery Sport were a necessity for their trip as the changing Alaskan weather created challenges.
Over the next few weeks Alex and Andrea would explore everything Alaska had to offer them. They visited Knik glacier where they were able to kayak on sapphire blue water. In Tutka Bay they were able to swim with humpback and beluga whales. In Homer they were able to explore some fjords and camp on a private island.
All in all, they had an incredible time exploring Alaska in the Land Rover Discovery Sport. After weeks on the road, they found Alaska felt less unknown and more like home.
