We have just booked some flights to Alaska, arriving in Anchorage on the 9th May and leaving on the 23rd May 2013. We are two adults. We would like to visit the following destinations:
2. Kodiac Island
We are happy to hire a car.
We want to do hiking and adventure activities.
We would like to stay in nice accommodation, preferably wilderness lodges.
We have several questions:
1. The guidebooks say that May is a good time to travel to Alaska even though it is the shoulder season, however, we are having problems finding good accommodation that is open in May. Is this going to be an issue.
2. Is it best to get the ferry to Kodiac Island, how long does it take and does it make sense to take the car?
3. Can you do a day trip to the Aleutian islands or do you have to stay over. How is the best way to get to the Aleutian islands.
