    • Flightseeing over an Alaskan glacier...which one?

      Alaska 7 hours ago

      I am going on a northbound cruise of Alaska with my wife and in-laws. We are going on the Royal Caribbean 7N Northbound Alaska & Hubbard Glacier cruise.
      It will stop at various ports along the way between Vancouver and Seward. We will fly back from Anchorage. There are many flightseeing excursions over Alaskan glaciers at the various ports during the cruise itinerary. They are of course rediculousy expensive and I will restrict/treat myself to ONLY one. I will be doing it alone or with the wife (the in-laws will not be with us for this period!). But which flightseeing excursion?

      Photography is my passion...fluidr.com/photos/phil_mario...
      So I would like to be on a flightseeing excursion that is photoworthy and am ensured a window seat to shoot from, so it is best to be in a helicopter or floatplane where the wing attaches to the top of the fuselage as this doesn't obstruct the view as much as a lower placed wing would.

      So the ports I can flightsee from are Ketchikan (Misty Fjords ), Icy Strait Point (Glacier Bay National Park), Juneau (helicopter over Juneau Icefield or a 5-Glacier Seaplane trip), Skagway (Chilkat Glacier system) or Anchorage (Denali/Mt. McKinley and Ruth & Kahiltna Glaciers).

      I have been to Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina and will soon see various Alaskan glaciers from sea level so with this flightseeing trip I am most interested in aerial shots that best depict the glaciers as rivers of ice. Dramatic mountains are a plus.

      Are there any well heeled travellers here that have been on some of these excursions and can recommend one over the others? Or know of other resourses I can use to find out?

      Sincerest thanks!

    • Magic Bus - Christopher McCandless

      Alaska Mar 31, 2014 at 8:45 AM

      Hi,

      My name is Gary and I'm currently looking to book an extended trip to travel across America. One of the locations I would like to visit it The 'Magic' Bus just off the Stampede Trail. When would be the safest time of year to hike out to the bus and are there also any tour guides who would accompany heading out there? I just wanted to check as I would rather not go out alone.

      I would be grateful for any information you could give me.

      Thanks

      Gary

      Hello I will be arriving in Juneau May 8th via the Carnival Miracle, I was looking into doing the Mendenhall Trek and climb with the Above and Beyond company. Anyone interested in joining my boyfriend and I on this tour. I am 25 and he is 24, however as long as you are over the age of 12 and are open to adventure, we welcome you to join us. We get an incredible group rate if its 3 or more people in a group. No experience is neccesary, just a lifetime oppurtunity.

      Sled Dog Tours

      Alaska Feb 25, 2014 at 11:13 AM

      I am traveling to South Central Alaska this summer (June) and I am wondering what my options are for dog sled tours. I would love to do a ride - Seavey's offers glacier rides (via helicopter from Girdwood) - but at $1000, I'm wondering if we're better off flying back in the winter time for a long weekend. Is Seavey's Ididaride the only game in town for summer rides? And if so, are they worth it? Would I be better served just doing a kennel tour and budgeting that money for another experience?

    • What was the name of the old dance bar down in Spenard, with lighted dance floor?

      Anchorage Jan 5, 2014 at 11:29 PM

      It was located on a street, past Northern Lights, headed towards the airport, I think. But definitely in Spenard! The street it's on curved abruptly to the right, immediately past the ba if you were driving to it from North Lights. On that right side, was a two-story almost faceless building, once painted off-white, style reminded me of the late 70s: boxy, faceless. It had several names over the years, but in the 90's was always a dance club with a really good sound system, huge dance floor (one upstairs, too I think) and was always packed! Even had a bar out back, too. Was very "rave-like" in the beginning, kinda punk-ish with lots of people sporting wild, colored hair of many hues. Gay, lesbian, bi, straight - it didn't matter! Anyone remember ANY of its names?! HELP? It's driving me bonkers to "see" it in my mind's eye, to remember dancing there and STILL not remember the NAME of the place! Accck!
