We are two women in our 60s and this is a one time trip to Alaska and would like to see wildlife and scenery and as much as we can. Some of the fishing excursions are appealing, as well as jeep/atv ones. We are not particularly the museum type. Any advice would be appreciated as to excursions, weather, etc. Will it be to late to see the northern lights? Will we see whales and other wildlife on the cruise itself? Thank you.Edited: 25 April 2014, 04:02
