Other than riding the Dalton and Dempster Highways Im not aware of any other way, you cannot ride it in Summer - far too much wetlands and lots of rivers to cross - and I have not seen any boat service from Prudhoe bay or one from Inuvik.

FYI, you won't be able to ride to Prudhoe Bay - Deadhorse, which is a few miles south of Prudhoe Bay, is the most northerly point that the public is allowed access to. Take a look at Google Maps - you will be able to find Deadhorse airport, and that's as far north as you will be able to go. Everything beyond Deadhorse is off-limits to the public.

As for transport between Deadhorse / Prudhoe Bay and Inuvik, I doubt very much if there is any form of scheduled public transport of any kind (air or marine).

Inuvik to Deadhorse

Take the Dempster Highway up to Inuvik from Dawson City, Yukon. On your return to Dawson City, continue to the Top of the World Highway. This will take you to Chicken, Alaska and then onto the Alaska Highway at Tetlin. Take the Alaska Highway to Fairbanks and then head for the Dalton Highway.

The Dalton will take you up to Deadhorse.

The Dalton and the Dempster are challenging rides and you should be well prepared. You should be able to do repairs to your machine and prepared to spend the night in the wild.

But you will be rewarded with an amazing experience.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
