My husband and I (in our 40's)are planning a trip to Alaska in the middle of June. We will have come off a cruise, spent 2 days in Seward, train to Anchorage to sleep. We will be renting a car from the airport the following day. Wondering if someone could give me any advice on this agenda so far...any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance--
Here is my question--on day 2 Should we do the 8 hr bus tour into the park even if we plan to do the Denali Highway to Paxson than down to Palmer back to Anchorage?? Which is better to do? Are the views worth 8 hr bus ride? (We are not big crowd people, like exploring on our own.)
Day 2-Denali early bus to Eielson Center than back to do a little hiking near entrance or do Husky Homestead 8:30am, drive the 15 miles in check out VC, do some hiking, Savage River area. Sleep in Healy
Day 3- (If did bus tour)Do Husky Homestead 8:30am tour... than do Denali Highway- sleep in Glennallen?? Is that reasonable for time? OR leave early do Denali Hwy, Paxson, sleep in Palmer.
Day 4- Palmer---not sure on what to do here...Knik Glacier jetboat tour or Ice trekking...than drive to Indepence Mine State Park than on to Anchorage to sleep.
Day 5-Fly out late
