Seems like locals and other travelers have given some really good advice. The trip is still developing but this is the general outline thus far.
Background: 3 late twenties/early thirties frineds going to Alaska: Two first timers, one a repeat vistor. Willing to spend some money but more on activies and nature as opposed to Nice hotels, shopping, etc.
Land in Anchorage on August 20th. All from diffrent places but suppose to get in at 7:00 pm. I suggest we eat. Looking at two micro breweries in town. Then to the grocery store for some food supplies. Then we head to Denali where we have already booked 3 nights at the Mountain Morning Hostel. Should be 4-5 hour trip per google.
In Denali we will meet up with another frined working as a raft guide. We will spend 3 days here:
We are planning a white water rafting trip (1st day)
Plannning on all day bus tours/ short hiking off bus (2nd day)
Fightseeing around denali-maybe glacier landing/hike (3rd day)
We also plan on going to a bar across the street from the hostel and I have made reservations for 229 Parks for dinner (is it worth eating there?)
August 24th we will travel south to keni penisula. We will have rented a car for the whole trip by the way.
From here I was thinking about catching a causal lunch in anchorage and heading south of town to hike the Flattop Moutian trail 1.5 miles maybe two hours. leave by 300pm
Try to make it to whitter for 5:00pm for a 5 hour sea kayak tour.
and ethier staying in whitter or heading to steward for the night.
On the 25-27 we have a three day camping/fly fishing trip scheduled with guide one of us knows. These dates have been set. We originally wanted a trip on the kenia river but we have asked about a more remote fly out fishing trip. He still does not know if he can give us this still waiting on the details and of course the will effect the trip.
The 28th we will have a day to travel to homer/steward
to hang out ideas on the table are:
Bearing viewing expensive but on my fav list not sure I can persuade the others
A whole day cruise in the sound.
steward wild life center/exit glacier
Drive up to see protage glaicer/hike
Maybe a halibut charter/homer and the split but that may be to much fishing.
Open to suggestions here!
On the 29 we have to drop one person at the airport.
May catch some food and the Native American Hertiage Museum and some rest at hostel.
Then at night can't decide if we should watch some jam bands and drink beer our last night or go classy and go to girwood and eat at seven glaciers: What do you think???
Then the 30th (Aug) our trip is over.
Any suggestions anything I am missing in terms of activies I really should do.
Thanks In advance for the help.
