Alaska trip

Jump to last reply

Hi all;

We are taking a trip to Alaska Summer of 2014. We booked a cruise on June 27th (Vancouver -> Seward) and then will spend 5 days on the land.

I have a couple of questions

1. It might be too early to watch bears in June, so we were thinking to do a bear viewing trip after the cruise. We arrive to Seward on Friday, July 4th at 5a.m. and need to be in Denali on Sunday morning. Where is the best place to do the bear viewing trip between Seward and Denali? Or do you think that trying to do it in Ketchikan on June 29th should be Ok?

2. What is the best way to get from Seward to Denali and what can we see/do along the way?

3. Any recommendations on which tour companies to use or avoid? (bear viewing, dogs sledding, etc etc)

Thanks in advance
