9 Day Trip to Alaska

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Alaska for our 1 year anniversary in June, and I am trying to get some ideas. It is a 9 day trip, but, with flying, we have 7 days to experience Alaska. Here is my rough schedule thus far. I wanted to get opinons to see if we were packing in too much in 7 days, or if one place isn't worth visiting. I also wanted to get opinions on what to do in each of the places as well. My husband and I are both in our 30s, we like the outdoors, are adventerous, and like to experience new things. Thanks!

Day 1- Arrive in Anchorage and drive to Denali
Day 2- Denali
Day 3- Denali and head toward Seward in the evening
Day 4- Seward
Day 5- Drive to Homer in the morning and spend the rest of the day there
Day 6- Homer
Day 7- Drive to Anchorage and spend the rest of the day there
Day 8- Anchorage
Day 9- Head home

Thank you everyone for your input and help!
