First of all, I really appreciate all the advice I have gotten from trip advisor and cruise critic when planning my previous 2 trips to Alaska. My husband tand I (no kids) took a cruise with Princess in July 2010 and then did just a land trip this past July. We are already talking about what we want to do when we go back :-) Right now we have no definite plans on when but it will most likely be in the summer time. I have a list of things we have interest in doing and wondered if somebody could give me a look at what an itinerary would look like. Since this hypothetical we might could add another day if possible. Just trying to get a rough idea for now on how much time we would probably need to do these things. I will say that we visited Denali, Seward and Homer and the Mantanuska Glacier in July so that is why I have not included them on my list for now.
Here are some ideas:
Valdez-Thompason Pass, Worthington Glacier, kayak?
Copper River area-Wrangell St Elias Nat'l Park-tour Kennicott mine area, root glacier
Knik River-knik glacier tour?
Girdwood-Winner Creek Trail, tram ride at Alyeska
I would really like to go on a floatplane-thinking about bear viewing, (cheaper ones are in Soldtona but not sure we could fit that in)flightseeing in Denali(from Talkeetna or Anchorage). We watched the planes take off at Lake Hood so maybe just a smaller, less expensive tour from there? I have not really seen any reviews on those smaller tours.
Sorry if I am all over the place. We just love Alaska and I would like to hit some places we didn't not get to see on the last 2 trips.
Thanks in advance
