I would like to get my itinerary reviewed and also have a few specific questions about the trip.
4 adults (us + our parents, in their fifties, moderately active)
1 kid (our son will be 15 months old then)
Will be renting a car, bringing car seat
Things we like to do: seeing glaciers, natural scenery, flight tour, not too particular about wildlife watching, scenic car drives (with breaks)
Want to do a relaxed trip and not rush through - can extend the trip a day or two if needed, please let me know if this feels too tight
First time in Alaska
Most likely start date is May 24
Day 1 - Anchorage, stay overnight
Day 2 - drive to Whittier, take PWS tour majormarine - this seemed to be a calmer tour, hence planning to take my son along, drive back to Anchorage, stay overnight
Day 3 - drive to Seward, take the Kenai Fjords 6 hr tour (this looks like the longest option in May end) - the plan is to decide if only our parents do this or all 5 of us do if our son does well on the PWS tour - not sure if it is a good idea to not reserve until the day before in this case
Day 3 - overnight in Seward
Day 4 - explore Seward (i see exit glacier recommended by many) + drive to Talkeetna, stay (could also stay in Seward and then drive in the morning)
Day 5 - take the flight tour with glacier landing (planning to take my son in this), drive back to Anchorage, stay (is end of May a decent time to take this tour - i know it depends on the weather at that time but just wanted to know in general) (would need a backup option if this is not recommended at this time - I was thinking of Homer)
Day 6 - fly back to Seattle
Would you suggest any changes to this?
Few additional questions:
Is there an easy/short bike trek we could do (just me and my dad) in Anchorage/Seward?
When I checked suggestions on this forum, majormarine was recommended from Whittier but Kenai Fjords was suggested from Seward, any reason? can i book both tours from majormarine itself?
