I’m debating on driving from Anchorage to Seward or taking the train. I would like the freedom of stopping where I want to take pictures and such, as I’m a pretty avid photographer, but the convenience of the train seems tempting. Any opinions? About how long does it take by car?
Once in Seward I’m thinking of doing one of the glacier cruise tours, 6 hour 8 hour, whatever….. then maybe checking out some of the day hikes in the area the next day, exit glacier or….etc….. How close are they to the town center, would it be better to have a car for this? I do see some shuttle services to the trail entrances, anyone use those?
Any recommendations on hotels or lodges there? Are any of them a little more isolated, quiet, scenic?.. I’d like to stay somewhere a little away from things if possible, without too much road noise and such….
