Alaska itinerary help

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, my husband and I are going to Alaska for a week and would really appreciate some help:

We land in the evening and have an entire day free, before driving to Denali on day 3 and staying there for 2 nights. We've already booked the Wonder Lake Bus. Then we are booked for 3 nights in Kenai Princess Lodge from where we would like to explore the South Central region. Would love to see the fjords, glaciers and possibly squeeze in sea kayaking too.

This is what our itinerary looks like right now:

1- Arrive in Anchorage
2- Free day - thinking of renting bikes and going on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail - any other suggestions?
3- Drive to Denali - can we do something on the way there?
4- Day in Denali - Wonder Lake Tour
5- Half a day more in Denali - drive to Coopers Landing
6- Free day
7- Free day
8- 5pm flight from Anchorage

Would be great to know what you recommend we do on day 2 and from day 6-8, without being super rushed. I assume day 5 would be spent in driving. Is it ok to be based at the Kenai Princess Lodge to explore the South Central region? Also great to get recommendation for particular tours or companies we should go with. Plan to buy the Alaska Tour Saver too.

Thanks
