I have a friend of a friend who is wanting to come up to Alaska to do a fly-out fishing trip. I'm not looking for names of pilots, places or rivers to go. I already have a few ideas in mind for him to try, but what I'm not sure about is how non-residents access the haul road (or Dalton highway). I've driven it many times myself and I'm familiar with all the locations, rivers etc. So just to be clear, I'm not soliciting advice on where to go. I'm just asking how a non-resident can travel up there. In other words, what are his options? Can he rent a car and go up there? I've heard that many rental places don't rent to people traveling the haul road because of the rough conditions. What are some other things people have done in the past. I know non-residents go up there to go hunting and fishing because I've seen the stories and pictures on this forum. I'm just not sure how they traveled up there. Thanks for the tips.
I really appreciate the help.
