My friend and I are driving up to Alaska and will arrive around the 24th of May and leave around the 24th of June. We are both in our younger twenties, in shape, and hoping to find the most adventure we can. We plan to come into the state through Canada and make the full round from the border to Fairbanks, to Denali, to Anchorage, all over the Kenai Peninsula, then back up through anchorage and back east to the border before heading home.
We want to keep costs to a minimum without sacrificing a good time. We would like to backpack and plan on sleeping backpacking style the entire trip. We are just looking for advice on what people recommend we do or see anywhere along or off of the route I mentioned. We love nature, wildlife, and adventure and beautiful scenery and would prefer a hike to get to see it.
What are the must see places?
