Jump to last reply

Well thanks to all the help of my fellow Fodorites and loads of research its finally coming together!!! I have all but one of the hotels booked - so that's a sigh of relief!!

How does this itinerary look? Any recs on activities would be great!!! The Bear Viewing flights are insanely expensive for a family of 4 so I have to rule that out....

Day 1 – FLY into Juneau overnight Alaskas Capital Inn (no car till post cruise)
Day 2 –Juneau – overnight Alaskas Capital Inn- Mendenhall Glacier
Day 3 – Juneau – daytime activity? – board Ship at 5:30 pm
Day 3-10 InnerSea Discovery Cruise (Juneau - Ketchikan)
Day 10 - day in Ketchikan – activity?
Then fly from Ketchikan to Anchorage in the evening, pick up rental car and stay Anchorage for 1 night – looking at SpringHill Suites Anchorage University Lake or SpringHill Suites Anchorage Midtown
Day 11 - drive up from Anchorage – Denali probably getting a late start – (need to do laundry) and taking our time up. If time stop in Talkeetna for a bit. Overnight McKinley Village
Day 12 – 7:30 am Shuttle bus to Eielson - overnight McKinley Village
Day 13 - Visit Denali visitor center - hike around these areas (ranger programs), see sled dogs, etc. overnight McKinley Village.
