Hi - planning a 2 weeker to Alaska from Aug 2nd to Aug 16th 2014. We are a couple in our late 20s. So far we have only booked Camp Denali for 4 nights starting Aug 4th. Would like some advice on the back end of our itin. We definitely want to do Seward (Kenai Fjords), Homer, and a night or so in Girdwood at Hotel Alyeska. Then deciding what to do with the rest of our time: debating btwn Kodiak or Wrangells St Elias. Rough itin below:
8/2 - arrive in ANC
8/3 - depart for denali by bus
8/4-8/7 - Camp Denali
8/8 - bus back from Denali to ANC to Girdwood (should we rent a car now?)
8/9 - Girwood (white water rafting)
8/10 - Girdwood to Seward
8/11-8/12 - Seward (wildlife cruise, ice climbing exit glacier)
8/12-8/13 - Homer
8/14-8/16 - TBD Kodiak? Reverse the route and end at Wrangells? We will most likely be opn a red eye out saturday night so should have most of this day.
What makes the most sense for the remaing days Kodiak or Wrangells? Ideally we would prefer whichever would provide a more unique experience when compared to what we already have on the itin. We like to be active and outside, seeing wildlife / scenery and are on the more adventurous side. All adivce is appreciated. The only thing that is nailed down is Camp Denali; the rest is flexible.
