In August 2008 my husband and I will be taking an Inland Passage cruise from Vancouver to Seward and then hiring an RV for 18 days returning it to Seattle Washington. We currently are planning on spending 5 days between Seward and Homer fishing, dog sledding and bear watching and then driving through Alaska and Canada (inland, ie the Rockies) on our way to Seattle.
What I want advise on is whether we spend an extra couple of days in the Kenai region, as our days there are virtually filled with booked tours, to have a good look around and go directly to Tok (bypassing Anchorage, Denali and Fairbanks) and along the highway from there or go to Denali for the two days and continuing from there.
I've heard great things about Denali but as we are driving an RV wont we be seeing a lot of beautiful scenery and possibly animals along the way anyway?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
