We are travelling to Alaska for 2 weeks in June. We are flying into Anchorage and out of Juneau, and plan to rent a car and see Denali, Kenai peninsula, and perhaps Valdez before flying to Juneau. We plan to stay in hotels or B&B's, like to hike, and want to see as much scenery and wildlife as possible including glaciers. We are not interested in a multiday cruise, but want to take at least one or two day cruises. Our budget is in the $500 to $600 per day range not including air fare.
Are we being too ambitious with our itinerary?
In Juneau, is it worhwhile to see Sitka on the marine highway, and if so will we need a car? Or would a trip to Glacier Bay be better for scenery?
In Denali, how do we get around? Are the shuttle buses dependable? Should we try to stay inside the park?
