    • Alaska with a 5 Year Old

      Alaska Sep 2, 2015 at 10:20 PM

      We will be travelling to Canada and Alaska for 8 weeks in September and October 2016. There are so many amazing things to see in Alaska and we are trying to work out an itinerary. What would you recommend for people that love to eat salmon and see wildlife. I am an archaeologist and my partner is an Aboriginal Sites Officer for an organisation in Australia. We love food, culture and wildlife. Thank you in advance!

      Hi

      We are planning a trip to Alaska between Sep 3 and 15 this year. We are only interested in "seeing" what nature offers and not doing much of anything else, because of certain constraints.

      Our plan is to Rent a car and spend 2 days in Anchorage. Next head north to Denali Park and thence to Fairbanks. Spend a day there and drive down Richardson Hwy and soak in all the splendor. Am not sure if Tok is worth visiting, yet. Go down to McCarthy, if it is worth going to McCarthy else go to Valdez instead & spend a night there. We will then go up and and turn west from GlennAllen. Check out Palmer - go to Portage/Whittier and do the Glacier tour there. Head to Seward, Cooper Landing, Kenai etc. Check each place towards Homer & see every heavenly spot along the way. Go back to Anchorage and fly back.

      Are we biting more than we can chew, as I know it is a lot of driving and plenty of retracing steps. But there is no other alternative, as riding a ferry from Valdez would deprive us of the Glenn Hwy pleasure. Please let me know if there is a better way to see the places on our list. We thank you in advance for any suggestions.

      Regards
      Krishna

      Getting around

      by mbynum Online Now Sep 10, 2007 at 7:11 PM

      I RV'd to Homer in the summer of 2004 and fell in love with the whole Homer experience: the scenery and the galleries and the food (!) and the friendly folk. It's taken me this long to be able to return to Alaska, but am planning to leave Huntsville, AL early May, with my eventual destination being 2-3 weeks in Homer! I don't tow a car behind my motor home and was wondering what the options are for renting a vehicle for my stay. I've thought about buying a little scooter, but figure I could rent a lot of cars for the expense of the scooter and the rack. I'm a retired teacher and travel alone with my little doglets. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
      Peace,
      Mimi

    • Seldovia,Halibut cove

      by travelbug014 Online Now Jun 8, 2007 at 10:35 PM

      I would like to visit Seldovia and Halibut Cove from Homer. What are the best tours available ? Will these be separate trips?If these are separate trips, I am looking for minimum repetition between the 2. I like hiking & biking & browsing art galleries and local shops. I would like to spend a decent amount of time at both places and visiting landmarks in the Kachemak bay & state park. but don't want to spend too much time waiting for the boat back to Homer. I also read about (some form of - sea plane etc) hourly flights between Seldovia and Homer. ARe these worth? Thanks.

      is it worth it to take the expensive boat to go to the other side of homer split?

      by 9tigers Online Now May 31, 2007 at 2:21 PM

      I know there is a state park across from homer, but the boat trip is expensive, is it worth it to go, if so, which one is more worth it.
      also I noticed that the boat trip to there is not offered everyday.

      any information are appreciated.
      I would like to find out more informaiton about Homer hiking trails, not those super long ones, like 4-5 miles are perfect.

      Homer in July

      by Wendy67 Online Now May 16, 2005 at 7:27 AM

      I'm researching a trip to Alaska over the summer to Homer, via Anchorage. I'm wondering how much time to spend in Homer - we're planning on five days - hoping to fish, kayak, hike, visit galleries, try the local brews, etc. Is a trip to the fjords from Homer a day trip or does it require a few days?

      I'm also looking for info on rental cars for the drive between Anchorage and Homer. I'd rather not fly, but enjoy the scenery on the way down the peninsula. In my research, I've not come upon too many options for rentals.

      Lodging suggestions? I'm looking at the Homer Inn and Spa for a bit of pampering after fishing for halibut all day, but it seems that there are several popular places to stay.

      All suggestions welcome. Thanks!

      I'm going to be in Homer for 3-4 days at the end of August and am trying to decide where to stay, if I stay outside of town, is it a pain to drive in and find parking in town? Thanks.
