10 day itinerary in Alaska - advice requested

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 3 who love nature, long walks, hikes, wildlife. We are going to Alaska Aug 31 through Sep 10.
Here is our itinerary:
Aug 31: flight to ANC getting there at 10.30 PM shuttle to hotel
Sep 1: Rent car drive to Denali (stopping at Trapper Creek, Talkeetna to check if clear day for flight) Is it necessary to book flight ahead of time? Do not want to do that in case weather does not cooperate.
Sep 2: bus to wonder lake, hiking around
Sep 3: bus to wonder lake, hiking
Sep 4: Drive to Glenn Allen ( I know loong drive)
Sep 5 Drive to Chitina / McCarthy, onwards to Valdez, Worthington glacier on the way
Sep 6 Drive to Sheep mountain lodge, hiking along the way
Sep 7 Drive to Alyeska, tram
Sep 8 Drive to Exit glacier, hike, onwards to Seward
Sep 9 Kenai Fjords boat tour
Sep 10 drive to Anchorage, hikes around = flat top mtn? return car flight at midnight

We have a long drive on just one day. Appreciate input from experts about the not to be missed sights along the way on the 10 days

Thanks
