Hello! Four of us are taking a trip to Alaska in two weeks and I was wondering if anyone can help us with lodging recommendations and/or spots to eat. We also need to fill out the rest of our itinerary and we weren't sure if we should book ahead of time or if it's easy to book activities with companies once we're there?
May 31: Arrive in Anchorage late. Grocery haul. Hotel booked.
June 1: Drive to Seward. Stop in Girwood during the day. Arrive in Seward by night.
June 2: Either: Trip to Glaciers, Whale Watching, or Kayak Trip. Would love to do dog sledding but we heard there won't be snow in June for that, is that true?
June 3: Either: Trip to Glaciers, Whale Watching, or Kayak Trip.
June 4: Either: Trip to Glaciers, Whale Watching, or Kayak Trip. Can we just book these once we get to Seward or do you think we need to book ahead of time b/c places might fill up? Is there a place in Seward where you can just go and book all these things in person?
June 5: Make our way to Homer in the morning or leave the day before. Spend the day in Homer, no itineraries planned yet. Any recommendations?
June 6: Bear viewing in Homer (booked). Head to Soldotna and sleep there.
June 7: Fishing trip in Soldotna (booked).
June 8: Day in Soldotna. Drive back to Anchorage to sleep.
June 9: Check out Anchorage and fly home that night.
Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks so much!
