Trip of a lifetime !! . . . . . (posted in Alaska forum too)
I have googled for days, weeks & months & spent countless hours reading truly valuable posts about self drive through Canada & Alaska
There is so much to see & do and the alternate routes are confusing me even more as to which one to choose and 'why'. I don't want to compromise something spectacular for choosing the wrong route. (Although it looks awesome anyway we go)
So far we've been able to map out the start & finish but it's the middle bit that's hard to choose because we can only choose one way to go.
MAY 22 2014
Day 1 Arrive & spend day in Seattle & then RV collection late afternoon
Day 2 Departing Seattle head to & spend day in Vancouver
Day 3 Travel to Vancouver Island down to Victoria, up to Campbell River, back to Nanaimo
Day 5 Kamloops to Calgary via Lake Louise & Banff
Day 6 Calgary to . . . .
This is where we don't know where to diversify, obviously we will go through Jasper, but from there we're at a loss as what way to choose to go along.....
Day 12 or 13 Fairbanks
Day 14 Denali National Park
Day 15 Return the RV & then spend day doing return trip to Seward
Fly to Vancouver do 7 day inside passage back to Anchorage
Spend day in Anchorage & fly back to Seattle for next day departure
Please, Please, Please, your input is much appreciated and valued. So far I have loved all my my months of research but it's getting closer to leaving now & would love some really honest advice.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
