Suggestions for 4 weeks Alaska & BC

Jump to last reply

We are 2 Aussie couples planning, or trying to plan, 4 weeks (Late April into May)mostly self drive with just a couple of short cruises planned. Drivng distances is no big problem as we have travelled around Australia a couple of times.Alaska is quite a different kettle of fish though as there are not as many roads to choose from as well as a completely different climate.We anticipate a few plane legs in the itinerary to get us around as well..We don't mind roughing it if we have to and couple of days flying in to the wilderness to a cabin on a lake is a must.Any good suggestions where is best to experience this??
Our main concern is :Will there still be snow around at that time and are most places open for business & cruises operating(like Kenai Fjiords).Also is there a big problem crossing the border into Canada with a rental car?
Have bought The Milepost.A great book & a big help planning distances.
Thanks in advance for any advice...
