Inside Passage Alaska in less then a week

Jump to last reply

HI there, I love Alaska and for the first time I want to see the Inside Passage and get the best of it in just 5 full days. I will be traveling August 30-September 5th, 2014 and I would like to see the Glacier Bay National Park (found out the last tour is on September 1st, and ferry trips are sold out until September 2nd), Sitka, and if possible, see the totem poles from Ketchikan (read somewhere that these are the best). Any suggestions on how to plan? Here is a possibility:
August 30- Arriving late in Juneau, dinner and rest.
August 31-Because of a very tight budget, check if there are last minute deal flights to Glacier Bay (ideal I would spend all day around Glacier Bay and Gustavus, and fly back around dinner .
September 1 Juneau bus ride to Mendenhall Glacier for a hike.
September 2-4 Sitka . Reserved a ferry ticket with Alaska Marine Highway . Hiking, sightseeing in Sitka.
September 4: Back to Juneau at night. Flight next morning.

Any other suggestions or better options are highly appreciated. Thank you.
