There has been a lot posted about the difficulty of traveling by train or bus between these locations. Can it be done by car? It would save about 96 miles. At this point I am planning to stay in Seward for two nights. I would then like to drive to Whittier. Is it possible, without going to Anchorage? It looks like it. How long will it take? I would like to take a cruise in Prince William sound & then head towards Anchorage. Want to see the Wildlife Sanctuary at some point in our travels. Should I consider taking the cruise at Portage Glacier when I am taking cruises at Seward & Whittier? Where would be a good place to stop for the night between Whittier & Anchorage? Thanks for your help!
