Please help with May 2012 itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are a couple in mid-50's, avid travelers, love nature and landscapes. Will be traveling to Alaska for a 10-day vacation in mid-May 2012. The dates are not flexible, nor is the duration of the trip. Have to start and end in Anchorage. Would love to see glaciers, icebergs, wilderness vistas. However, seeing wildlife is not a high priority, nor is experiencing native culture, or doing trout fishing. Will not enjoy being in a cruise ship for 7 days.

Need ideas on what places to cover. One option seems to be : Anchorage - Talkeetna - Denali - Seward - Kenai Fjords cruise - Anchorage. A slightly different option could be Anchorage - Seward - Kenai Fjords cruise - Homer - Valdez - Anchorage. We are totally open to other options as well.

The important thing to find out is, which locations would be best between 15th-25th May ? Should we include Denali or omit it ? How is Homer, or Valdez ?

We can drive through, or take bus / railroad. Very flexible on these options. Please help us plan this trip of a lifetime.
