Alaska 2012 - Need help with trip planning

Jump to last reply

We will have 7-9 days in Alaska, not counting travel days. We will likely be able to leave anytime after August 6th. I am planning on buying a tour saver book and hope to plan our lodging around using coupons in this book.

We will fly into Anchorage and rent a car. We are going to Denali and plan to do a bus tour into the park. If the weather cooperates, we would like to do the flight seeing from Talkeetna. We then plan to go south to the Kenai peninsula and definitely plan to do the full day kenai fjords tour. Not certain of other plans at this point. I've read lots of Alaska posts on Fodors, which can be overwhelming.

The tour saver book has lodging coupons for the following:
Denali - Denali Bluffs Hotel
Palmer - Knik River Lodge
Cooper Landing - Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge.

Since each of these hotels have a buy 1 get 1 free offer, this would cover 6 nights of lodging, if these would be good choices.

Plans at present are as follows:

Day 1 - Fly into Anchorage, late afternoon arrival. Spend the night.
Day 2 - Drive to Denali, spend the night. Stops along the way?
Day 3 - Bus tour of Denal. Spend the night.
Day 4 - Flightseeing in Talkeetna, weather permitting. Drive to Palmer, spend night.
Day 5 - Spend day in area around Palmer & spend the night there. Suggestions for things to do?
Day 6 & 7 - Kenai peninsula. Spend both nights at Kenai Princess. Spend day 7 on Kenai Fjords tour.
Day 8 - Drive back to Anchorage for a late evening flight. Have the day to spend in Anchorage once we arrive.

Any suggestions as to where we should stop along the way are appreciated. This plan is not set in stone, just a thought when looking at the lodging coupons in the tour saver book. We can add an extra day or two to the trip, depending on recommendations as to what to see and where to stay.

Thanks so much for any suggestions anyone may be able to offer.
