    • Getting to the northern most point in Barrow.

      Barrow May 20, 2015 at 10:23 AM

      It looks like the northern most point on the road (a badly weathered sign frame sits at the end of the road) is about 10 miles away from the airport. If I go in July can I walk there? I heard taxis are sketchy at best. Rental cars are nearly impossible to get. I've already inquired into 2016 with few available. I guess my only concern besides weather would be wildlife? If anyone could shed any light on this is,it would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks, Ron

    • Booking ahead or not?

      Alaska May 19, 2015 at 7:20 AM

      Hey all,
      I will be traveling in Alaska in late July - early September, and plan on hiking and backpacking. No fancy hotels or luxurious cruises.
      I have traveled before, and prefer never to book hostels/parks ahead. I like to just get somewhere, and stay there as much as I want.
      But after reading a bit about Alaska, I wonder if it's better to stick to a strict plan and book everything ahead, or is it possible to just go with the flow and maybe even get some last minute deals?

    • Experience Kodiak Island on your own?

      by nightwolf0215 Online Now Apr 24, 2015 at 3:07 PM

      I'd like to do some bear viewing, hiking, fishing, and other fun stuff while on Kodiak Island. Most of those activities are quite costly with a guide. Is it possible to experience what Kodiak has to offer in term of wildlife viewing without a guide on my own? I appreciate any info. Thanks.

    • July 2009 trip to Kodiak...need some answers

      by pogopat Online Now Jun 7, 2009 at 1:59 PM

      We are coming to go a mission trip--vbs for a small church there. Most days will be working with the children from 1-4. I would like to go kayaking, but do not want to go with a group tour type thing. Is there anyone who does kayaking around this area more one on one?

      Also...might be interested in hiking.

      Husband will probably be want to do something more to my interests.

      flying from Anchorage and back

      by a96m97 Online Now May 16, 2006 at 6:47 AM

      We have booked a 3-night bear viewing tour in Uyak Bay from Aug. 23 to 26.
      First, we will have to fly to Kodiak from Anchorage. Then we will reach Uyak Bay by floatplane.
      I have heard the weather is often rainy and/or foggy in Kodiak Island.
      I think the floatplane trips' schedule may easily change.
      But what about the flights from/to Anchorage?
      Does it often happen that they are cancelled or delayed because of bad weather?
      There are several daily flights and I don't know whether I should book much in advance or later on or ... ?
      When a flight is cancelled because of weather, does the airline usually try to move people to the next available flight automatically?
      Many thanks for any suggestions about this subject.
