Need help with trip itinerary

We are planning on spending 8 nights on our vacation. One night is definitely in Girdwood. The next two nights in Seward (Kenai area,) and the fourth night in Talkeetna. That leaves four more nights. Can anyone offer advice - Should we spend 4 nights in Denali National Park, or add one more night in the Seward area, and only 3 in Denali? Any thoughts or comments, please reply.

I personally like spending more time in Talkeetna. There is plenty to do and I recommend checking out the Talkeetna chamber of commerce website for all the activities that Talkeetna offers. My favorites include Flightseeing with Alaska bush floatplane service and I loved the homestead tour offered from Denali fireside inn.

In Seward definitely go on the day long cruise. You will see so much more. Exit glacier is near by, a great place to walk and visit. Visit the sea life center too. I usually suggest three days there. I love kayaking in Seward and walking along the sea beach combing.

Girdwood is beautiful, what will you be doing? Hatchers pass? The matanuska glacier?

What do you want to do? Hike? Drive around sightseeing?

When are you going? Denali national park can get very busy and I personally only like seeing it from the air when it gets soo busy!

Thanks for the advice! We already have the day cruise planned in Seward, and will be hiking, driving around sightseeing, etc. We are going to book the flightseeing this week, will try to see Hatcher's Pass, and the Matanuska Glacier too. We are going late June to early July. We know Denali will be busy, and will definitely plan on seeing it from the air! So exciting - can't wait! Thanks for the reply.
