Further Reading

For more in-depth coverage, Lonely Planet publishes individual guides to Alaska and Canada, as well as Hiking in Alaska, which discusses hikes around the state.

Another essential companion is the Mile-post (ยงยง 1-800 726 4707; www.themilepost.com), which has been through over 50 editions and covers practically every business, service and wide spot in the road along every step of the way. If you're heading beyond the highways, the same publisher also produces the Alaska Wilderness Guide, which presents an exhaustive array of possibilities in Alaska's roadless areas.

If you're heading further east in Arctic Canada, be sure to get hold of the comprehensive Nunavut Handbook, which can be ordered from Nunavut Tourism (www.nunatour.nt.ca).

Anyone hoping to strike off into the Arctic wilderness on their own will thoroughly appreciate a copy of Planning a Wilderness Trip in Canada & Alaska, by Keith Morton. It contains information on everything you'll want to know, from chartering a bush flight and surviving bears, insects and inclement weather to gutting fish, cooking a palatable meal and dealing with such wilderness plagues as constipation and flatulence. It focuses on the wilderness areas of Alaska and Canada, but the information is applicable anywhere in the Arctic.
