Italy, Spain, Argentina or Alaska ? (with teens)

We are a family of five trying to narrow down our choices for a summer vacation in 2009. Teens will be 20, 18 and 16. Trying to secure frequent flyer seats to one of these locations sometime in early-mid June. Which is more expensive Italy or Alaska? If Spain is our choice, is Southern Spain best along with a ferry to Morocco, or is there a better region to stick to. Does Argentina have as much to offer as the other locations?
We have roughly 11-13 days to work with.
Thank you for any advice on these destinations.

What do you like to do on vacation? Your choices are very different places. It is difficult to give advice without knowing more about what you are seeking to do.

We are very versatile. My husband and son would love Alaska....but, I am leary of the weather (I am very cold natured, but otherwise love the outdoors.) We all would like to do a cruise or train ride or maybe a kayak trip. That said, the two girls and I would probably enjoy one of the other destinations better. We are not going for the museums, but a couple of good ones, plus a cathedral here or there is perfect. The Tuscany region is high on the list. I am more concerned with finding reasonable accomodations for five people in Europe. Plus, the food costs in Italy and Alaska both appear very high. Don't know about costs for Spain or Argentina.

Well, Argentina in June will be winter, so if you are worried about the weather in Alaska, you might rethink that as an option.

Very good point! I didn't even think about that. Thank you.
