I am planning on a trip to Alaska on short notice and am looking for help in determining my itinerary. I will be landing in Anchorage on May 30th early morning and leaving on June 10th early morning. I have booked a rental car for those 10 days.My trip will be kind of split into two parts since I will be joined by another person on June 5th early morning in Fairbanks.
For the first part, I have not yet planned anything specific. All I have in mind right now is to drive along a few scenic roads around Anchorage. I love nature and looking at its beauty. Any suggestions for other activities would be helpful.
For the second part of the trip, this is the plan we have made so far
June 5th - start early from Fairbanks and drive along the Dalton Highway (until Deadhorse)
June 6th - return to Fairbanks (late night/early morning on 7th). For this trip, we are planning to rent a vehicle either from Arctic Outfitters or Go North
June 7th - Head to Denali national park and take the shuttle into the park. Reach Anchorage if possible that night
June 9th - planning on a dog sled ride or a flight landing on glacier (have not thought much about this). Return to Anchorage and prepare to leave
Do you think the above plan is viable?
Any suggestions or changes we should make?
Both of us are in our late twenties and can drive. We are interested in enjoying the scenery, driving, hiking and photography (not interested in fishing).
Any help would be much appreciated.
