Need Help for Alaska Trip

Jump to last reply

Hello!

I am planning a trip to Alaska July or August 2012 and need advice, please!

I am a middle-aged woman, who will be traveling solo. I'd like to spend a week (Sa-Sa, probably). What I want to do is fish (charter/party boat, but riverside fishing would be great, too), light hiking, a glacier boat tour, and perhaps some kayaking, as well as general sightseeing a driving around.

A friend advises Seward, but I've found nice places to stay in Homer and Whittier. I would prefer to have one location as my "base" for the duration of the trip, either at a upscale hotel or condo/vacation home rental.

Is any one of these locations better than the other for meeting all this criteria? I will be flying into Anchorage and renting a car.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Denise
