Looking for wildlife in Alaska (12 days)

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be visiting Alaska for the first time, for 12 days, starting at the end of August. Our goal is to see as much wildlife and natural beauty as possible, and we would like to stay in interesting places rather than chain hotels. We will be flying in and out of Anchorage, and we are just beginning our planning.

So far, we are thinking of staying the first night in Anchorage, then Kodiak Island for 2 nights, Seward for 2 nights, and Denali for 3 nights. For the other 3 nights, we are considering adding Homer or Valdez, or maybe just extending our stay at the other locations. We are planning to rent a car for the whole trip.

Does this sound reasonable? Can anyone recommend any good day excursions with a focus on wildlife? Do we have a good chance to see wolves? Are we overlooking any can't miss sights? Wrangell NP looks amazing, but it looks too hard to get to, and I don't think we have time to go to Fairbanks and points north.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! We will be relying heavily on the internet in our planning.
