Ferry Valdez-Whittier (to Anchorage) or take the road instead ?

Jump to last reply

Hello all,
We are setting up a schedule for our 3 weeks trip in September 2014 through Alaska and the Yukon.
Right now we are clueless about the following:

Our last part of the trip could roughly be
Tok - Valdez
Ferry Valdez-Whittier
Whittier-Anchorage

or

By road we would probably travel
Tok-Gakona (or Glacier View) - on Richardson Hwy
Gakona or Glacier View-Anchorage - on Glenn Hwy

As the ferry service is scarce after September 11 (sails only every other day), we think about skipping the ferry completely and take the Richardson Hwy instead to be a little more flexible. But will we regret doing that?
We do a glacier/wildlife cruise from/to Seward at the beginning of our trip. So is the ferry ride Valdez-Whittier a completely different and worthwile thing to do (and spend $ 240)?

What is your advice?
a) Is the ferry ride a not-to-be-missed experience (keeping in mind it will be Sep 16 or 18...)?

b) Is the road from Gakona to Valdez very interesting or will we not miss much if we skip that part and continue on Glenn Hwy west?

c) Is the road trip from Tok to Gakona/Glacier View a nice drive (landscape)?


Would be grateful for your opinions!
Best regards from Berlin/Germany
