Traveling Costs in Alaska
In the North, medium to better-quality hotel and motel accommodations average $105 to $250 for a double room. In the cities, expect to pay more for accommodations in the larger downtown hotels, less in
the outlying smaller motels.
Meals and food prices will vary considerably. Burger-and-shake will be about $8 to $12, while a complete dinner may range from $15 to $50.
Costs for gasoline in Alaska and
Canada vary relative to distance from distribution centers but can be as high as double what you are used to paying.
State ferry prices are reasonable; $171
per passenger from Prince Rupert to Skagway; $374 for the average car and driver.
Travelers driving through Canada on their way to Alaska will find travel costs in Canada substantially higher than travel
expenses in the lower 48 states.
