We scrapped our original plans and are now doing a two part trip.
The first part we are flying in August to ANC (6pm,day 0) then have 14 days on the ground, return the following day (15). We would rent a car.
We would like to fish in Seward, do a Kenai Park all day cruise, kayak somewhere, see bears, possibly do another cruise/tour through PWS to see more glaciers. We are also looking at Denali and trying to decide how many days to spend in that area.
the rough draft for part one:
Friday 0 -arrive in ANC, stay ANC
Sat 1 - drive to Denali area or maybe find a tour /rail package (or stay in ANC, drive to Denali area Sunday)
Sun 2- day in Denali, stay Denali (or Talkeetna)
Mon 3- day in Denali, stay Denali (or Talkeetna)
Tues 4- Drive to Homer, Stay Homer
Weds 5- (Kayak?), stay Homer
Thurs 6- (see bears?), stay Homer
Fri 7- Drive to Seward, stop at Exit Glacier on way, stay Seward
Sat 8- Glacier Cruise, stay Seward
Sun 9- fishing, Saltwater Lodge, stay Seward
Tues 11- Fly into Wrangell Ellis park, stay in park
Weds 12- Park tour, stay in park
Thurs 13- Fly back to Chitina, Drive towards ANC, do Matanuska glacier tour, stay ?
Sat 15 - fly home
so right now I have Fri 14 empty, what place would be better to add an extra day to? Spend more time driving ANC to homer and spend a night along the way? Gridwood area maybe?
Any suggestions for a Wilderness Lodge (all inclusive type) on the Kenai Peninsula?Edited: 05 October 2011, 15:36
