Alaska Itinerary - please help!

Jump to last reply

Hello, I'm finally getting started on our Alaska itinerary. This is a last-minute trip (August 2011) so I need to get started on reservations right away!

I am trying to make this a relaxing trip (as relaxing as an Alaska itinerary could be) because I'll be 26 weeks pregnant by the time of the trip, that's why I'm shooting for at least 3 nights in each location.

Day 0 Fri Arrival in Anchorage 7:15pm
Day 1 Sat Anchorage - check out the zoo and musem
Day 2 Sun Anchorage - day trip to Whittier
Day 3 Mon Seward - train to Seward
Day 4 Tue Seward
Day 5 Wed Seward
Day 6 Thu Denali - drive to Denali
Day 7 Fri Denali
Day 8 Sat Denali
Day 9 Sun ???
Day 10 Mon ???
Day 11 Tue Leave Anchorage (late night flight)

1. I don't have anything for the last 2 days of the trip so please send me recommendations - should I add more nights to Seward and/or Denali, or do we add another location (Homer? Talkeetna? Juneau?)?

2. Has anyone ever rented a car in Seward, then dropped it off in Anchorage?

3. From Seward to Denali - would it be better to drive straight through or break down the trip with another night in Anchorage?

Thank you in advance!
