Ok, I think I have a good idea on our itinerary and would love some input. We will be there for 2 weeks beginning July 19th, renting an RV. If there are places where I have a whole day planned and you think a whole day is not needed please let me know and I will add more activities. The more I plan the more I realize we don't have enough time to do it all.
Tuesday: arrive in Anchorage, pick up the RV at 3:00. Shop and head towards Seward, stop somewhere along the road for the night, possilbly Girdwood. Or if we make it all the way to Seward that night great.
Thursday: He will be fishing all day from Millers; I will be doing the kayak/hiking tour and some hiking from Millers. Night in Millers.
Saturday: Here is where we are stuck: one option is to do the Spencer Whistle Stop on the Alaskan Railroad. The other option is to make this a day to meander north. (see next day for explanation)
Sunday: 10:30 AM Flight seeing trip from Talkeetna.(so we need to be in Talkeetna in the AM, which is why we were questioning what to do on Saturday). After flight seeing, drive to Denali, spend the night at Riley Campground.
Monday: Denali NP: Tour to Wonder Lake. Spend the night in Riley Camp Ground.
Tuesday: Denali Jeep tour, or white water raft; hiking, Dinner Theater; spend the night in Riley.
Wednesday: ATV tour, or more hiking; leave Denali and head north. Spend the night somewhere near Fairbanks.
Thurday: explore fairbanks, possibly do the Riverboat and/or head to Chena area.
Friday-Saturday-Sunday: Drive from Fairbanks to Wrangall St. Elias National Park area. Exploring and meandering then heading back towards Anchorage. These 3 days are our days to simply see where we end up. We may stop and hike, or take in a town that looks nice, or go back to somewhere we liked before.
Monday: return the RV at 10am. spend the day exploring Anchorage, night in a hotel in anchorage.
Tuesday: explore anchorage again until our 11p flight leaves.
