multi-destinations with multi-type travel

Sweetheart & I will be celebrating 50th anniversary in two years. That will include a cruise to Alaska, a stay in Yosemite Valley and trip to Machu Picchu in Peru, then back home to Utah.

Length of stay at each destination will not be a problem. Would it be better to plan each major destinations first, and fill in linking transportation later, or have it kinda like open-jaw?

So you're trying to do all three things on one trip? That's seems like an awful lot. I personally would enjoy each place more, by doing them separately.

Those are three destinations that are not easily connected. Plus they are best visited at different times of the year.

If it was me I'd plan it a 'Our Year of Travel' and do three distinct/separate trips.

Alaska needs to be in the summer. Yosemite is best in late March to May or October. Peru is probably best in May or September.

It really is three different trips. You are just planning to connect them. Right? I wouldn't. Plan and do them separately. Won't cost much more and would work better to get the most out of each.

I would be so exhausted by the third destination I wouldn't be able to appreciate or enjoy it.

I agree with the idea to make these three separate trips during a year.

You need to take into account some things like for Machu Picchu the high altitude really effects some people negatively. None of those trips are "easy" ones. It's not like you're combining a couple Hawaiian islands or something.

I hope our poster checks back...
