Alaska, 5-6 days

Jump to last reply

Hi All - I am starting to plan a trip to Alaska for March - 2 people. March is just around the corner so I need to kick this planning into gear & book fights! I had a few general questions after reading through some forum posts.

1. March timeframe - we picked this month trying to maximize our chances of seeing the lights, however it seems as though this is not a time many people travel. Thoughts? Is the weather really harsh, will hiking be really tough?

Also – since this is the true off season, would it be too risky not to reserve lodging ahead of time (but having a list of options ready), allowing for more flexibility?

2. We will fly into Anchorage and want to go to Fairbanks for the same reason. Our trip will be 5-6 days.

Tentative schedule:
Day 1 Anchorage
Day 2 rental car, stop in Denali
Day 3 Denali & drive to Fairbanks
Day 4 and 5 Fairbanks and drive back down

Is this a good driving to sight seeing ratio?

3. While the lights are the priority, I would love to get a chance to hike & see some wildlife, which I think Denali will be great for. Any other great experiences/suggestion I should consider?

Thanks so much for all and any advice!!
