    • Non touristy activities

      Alaska Mar 10, 2015 at 9:11 PM

      My husband and I, along with our 9 month old will be cruising to Alaska in May. My husband doesn't like to do touristy stuff so I am looking for some input on non touristy activities to do in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. The activity needs to be short enough to fit with the cruising schedule. Also any ideas for Seward or Talkeetna would be awesome too. Thanks

    • Train near town?

      Talkeetna 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!

    • Just a few questions

      Alaska Mar 15, 2015 at 11:40 PM

      I will be traveling to ALASKA by vehicle in May till August/September from the lower 48/49.

      1. Is it worth the hassle getting gun permits to travel through Canada?

      I have always had firearms and don't travel very much. I know the basics about bears and moose and have no intentions of a bad encounter and would never want to shoot one. I will be traveling with a camper and know the food rules, making noise while hiking, etc. I'm not really sold on bear spray or bear bangers though, do they really work? I plan on camping in remote spots, I know most of ALASKA is remote.

      2. I will be traveling alone and feel much more secure carrying a firearm for personal protection in case I am in a bad situation, mainly with humans.

      Am I being overly paranoid?

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks

    • Transportation to Valdez

      by slsbrown Online Now Jul 13, 2009 at 3:00 PM

      What is the best way to get to Valdez from Anchorage? I'm staying for 2 weeks, so a rental car is very expensive. Is there a bus or a shuttle? Is there a bus or train to Whittier where I can take the ferry?

    • Kayaking to Columbia Glacier

      by travel10000 Online Now Jul 5, 2006 at 7:40 AM

      We will be in Valdez in August and would like to do a 1 day kayaking trip in calm water between icebergs. Is Columbia Glacier trip the best one that fits this description? Is it ok for someone with no ocean kayaking experience (but some lakes experience)? I found two companies that do it. Do any of you know how they compare?

    • Columbia Glacier tour operator

      by nettebini Online Now Jun 26, 2006 at 8:59 PM

      I'm looking for feedback -- either good or bad -- on Columbia Glacier tour operators. It looks like there are two main operators out of Valdez: Stan Stephens and the Lulu Belle. Does anyone have experience with either of these proprietors or any others?

      Thanks in advance!

    • Glacier Sound Inn

      by LaurenBloo Online Now May 15, 2006 at 8:53 PM

      Hi, the Glacier Sound Inn seems to be the cheapest lodging option in Valdez. Since it's just me traveling alone, I want to make sure it is in a decent area, not sketchy or anything. Anyone know of it and if it is okay?!?! Thanks!
