2nd Trip to Alaska, Looking for some off the beaten path suggestions

Jump to last reply

This will be our second trip to Alaska... We are a 30s couple that are avid landscape photographers and medium fit hikers... We will be traveling with our 9 year old son who also hikes with us and also our parents will be with us who are not that much into long hikes...

Our first trip was flying into Anchorage, renting a car and covering the following highlights - Turnagain Arm, Seward Highway, Kenai Fjords Aialik Bay cruise, Exit glacier, Whittier Prince William Sound cruise, Portage glacier, Matanuska glacier, drive to Valdez through Thompson pass, Talkeetna flight trip over the Alaskan range...

We absolutely loved our first trip... But that was before our son was born and also taking our parents with us for this next one... We will likely revisit all the places listed above that we did in our first trip...

Looking for suggestions for what MORE we can do this time... Denali national park? Need 3 days for that? We would like off the beaten path suggestions for very picturesque locales and interesting things to do...

We would also like suggestions for 2-3 awesome hikes, which if too long for parents, we can leave them behind to be busy with something else or have a relaxing day..

Once again, we are into gorgeous mountain, lakes and glacier landscapes... Our son is crazy for wildlife, so that will also be a plus...

Flying into Anchorage again, will rent a car and drive and will have about 2 weeks of time...
