Juneau to Anchorage in 15 days

Jump to last reply

Would like feedback on our itinerary and sightseeing recommendations for August trip.

My husband and I are in our 50's and did an Alaskan cruise over 20 years ago. We have decided, at the last minute, that we would like to drive through Alaska while we are still capable and adventurous to do it. We are interested in history, nature, light hiking and sightseeing cruises.

Day 1: Fly Dallas/Juneau/Skagway. 1 night in Skagway.

Day 2: 1/2 day in Skagway and drive to Whitehorse. 1 night in Whitehorse

Day 3/4: Drive to Dawson City. 2 nights in Dawson City to recuperate and prepare for drive to Fairbanks.

Day 5: Drive to Fairbanks. 1 night in Fairbanks.

Day 6/7/8: Drive to Denali National Park. 3 nights in the Denali area.

Day 9: Drive to Anchorage. 1 night in Anchorage.

Day 10: Drive the Seward Highway to Kenai Peninsula. 5 nights in KP (Whittier, Seward, Homer). Considering a fishing excursion.

Day 15: Drive to Anchorage. 1 night in Anchorage

Day 16: Fly home

Thank you for your time.
