We are doing a 7 day cruise from Vancouver to whittier. A must do for me is land on a glacier. My question is should I plan to do it while on the cruise or after? We are spending two nights in Denali after the cruise & are renting a car from Anchorage. We can be in Talkeetna around 3:00 on day 1 & I can book plan for it then. I am concerned about weather conditions & it being cancelled. It is possible to try again on day 3 when I drive back to Anchorage from Denali for a late night flight. My kids would love a helicopter ride instead of a plane (although a float plane may interest them).
Our cruise ports are Ketchikan, Skagway, & Juneau. I planned to do the glacier flight in Skagway & do the whale watching & Mendenhall glacier drop off & bus back in Juneau. Is there a preference? Thanks
