    • 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?
      Thanks

    • Train near town?

      by coldcreak Online Now Mar 23, 2015 at 9:03 PM

      We're trying to plan a short trip from Anchorage to either Talkeetna or Denali with our 6 year old granddaughter in July. If we take the train, are there taxis to get to town, lodging, restaurants, etc.? Any ideas on which place would be more interesting for a child? Also, is the higher priced Goldstar train car worth the extra cost? Not sure what the Adventure class is like. Would it be better to rent a car? We would appreciate any suggestions! Thanks!

    • Travelling from Talkeetna to Anchorage in April

      by 13raji Online Now Oct 3, 2008 at 5:48 AM

      Hi!
      My partner and I are spending our honeymoon travelling around Alaska in April. We want to go from Talkeetna to Anchorage on 21st April but are having trouble figuring out how to do it. I don't mind hiring a car and driving down, but I was hoping that there might a bus/train service so that I could take in all the scenery!
      Any suggestions?

      Thanks

      There are several glacier pilot operations in Talkeetna. Have you had a particularly wonderful experience with any of them? Which trip flying around Denali and landing on a glacier do you recommend? Any other information about those trips?

      I need to get myself and my 4 year old daughter from anchorage to talkeetna without hiring a car as we'll have transport once we've reached your good selves. Limited budget - thats what kids do to you- and we'll be knackered after the flight from Scotland! (I trust your judgement as locals rather than an agents). Aye yours. Hazel
