Alaska Itineraries

Long Weekend

Those short on time should fly into Juneau (we like the isolated yet intimate feel of the capital) and use the city as a home base for forays into the surrounding wilderness (like to sea kayak or hike glaciers). Be sure to arrange an overnight trip to Glacier Bay National Park.

One Week

Start with three days in Juneau as above, then catch a flight to Anchorage, rent a car, and spend one day exploring the city. Spend the next day driving out to the Kenai Peninsula via the Seward Highway for a two-night stay in Seward, allowing time to visit the Kenai Fjords National Park. Return to Anchorage for the flight home.

Two Weeks

Follow the above, but continue from Anchorage toward Denali National Park by road or rail. Consider spending one night in Talkeetna, or head straight to the park for a two-night stay. Continue to Fairbanks and spend two nights there, factoring in at least half a day for a flight excursion to the Arctic. Fly home from Fairbanks.
