      Hello! We are visiting Hawaii for the first time and I am having some logistics problems !
      I have booked 5 nights at Disney's Aulani Resort on O'ahu... had too do that part first,
      rooms were disappearing. My question is:

      • Kauai before or after O'ahu?
      • Can we fly into Honolulu...then jump over to Kauai ( Hawaiin Air?) then fly directly

      back home from there, Kauai - Chicago? Is there a better/cheaper way to do this?

      • Most popular area of Kauai to stay in? East , West, North, or South? for walkability,

      restaurants, beaches, etc?

      2. next 3 day itinerary is where I need help - thinking either homer for 2 nights knowing that will add lots of car time
      or renting house in girdwood area for access to prince William sound tour, hiking, cooper landing, alyeska, wildlife conservation center, ??? other ideas.
      Or one night girdwood and one night north of anchorage on way to talkeetna- ideas??
      3. last night is talkeetna for denali flight seeing tour then back to anchorage for night flight out
      Or would everyone recommend 3 days seward and 3 days denali? feels like it would be a lot of driving...

    • Northern Lights necklace

      Alaska Jul 14, 2016 at 1:59 PM

      Hi All!

      I really hope you can help. We did a Disney Cruise to Alaska last summer and at one port (either Skagway, Juneau, or Ketchikan) I bought a necklace from a jewelry store that was called "Northern Lights" for $10. They had matching earrings for the same price but I bought the necklace only. Real or not real, it didn't matter...I loved it. It was just a small, round stone. We moved about 6 weeks ago, and somehow...in the midst of moving...the necklace is missing. It's driving me nuts and I am really mad about it. So, now I wanted to see if I could possibly find the jewelry store who sold it to me and contact them about possibly ordering another one. I can picture the store from the outside, but cannot exactly recall the port, the store's name, or any of it. I am hoping perhaps one of you guys could help me!! I would really greatly appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks! It's very much appreciated it.

      Alaska Mar 27, 2016 at 10:17 AM

      I've been trying to plan this for a while and I think I am underestimating time/distance.. 35th wedding anniversary and hubby wants to spend it in alaska. The only "tours" we are truly interested in are Talkeetna Devil Canyon boat tour, 26 glacier cruise, hiking exit glacier (or the equivalent) and the shuttle bus in Denali. I have considered 7 glaciers for our anniversary dinner but don't know how possible that is.What I have tentatively figured was; fly into anchorage July 28, drive to talkeetna july 29, do the canyon tour, drive to denali, stay in denali from july 29-aug 1, take the shuttle through the park july 30. I had thought to then drive to seward aug 1 for the 26 glacier tour, exit glacier hike but those turn out to be whittier? My blonde brain is overwhelmed. Any aid to help me plan this well? We don't want an "every minute planned vacation". I have tentative, cancellable reservations in both seward and denali if that helps. We will also have a rental car. Are there festivals/do not miss happenings that I have missed? Please, no fly overs... I barely handle jets. :( thank you. If you were there July 28- August 3 and really wanted to do 26 glaciers, Devils canyon, Denali and a glacier hike, how would you arrange it?

      My wife and I are wanting to fly into Alaska then rent a car/RV and take off to see the southeast part of Alaska. We are from Arkansas, live in the country and enjoy outdoors. We would like to see bears, moose, sea life, maybe fish a little, visit local taverns/restaurants, learn about the culture of the locals, see glaciers, mountains and visit a few nicer places too. Not into the big tourist crowds at all. We do not want a tour guide service telling us what to do and where to go on tours. My wife showed me a bear tour that was like $500.00! Can you not just go to a park and watch them on your own?? We would like to discover these things on our own if we can get a good itinerary from someone that knows the area. We are thinking around 10 days in July. We do not have a clue where to fly into or where to go so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Alaska 5 week Itinerary - Input Appreciated. Thank you!

      Alaska Jan 2, 2016 at 12:56 AM

      Hello!

      My partner and I are doing a 8 week road trip from Denver up to Alaska. We have allowed ourselves 13 days to get to Alaska (allowing us to enjoy Jackson hole, glacier national park, Banff etc etc) and 5 days to return to Denver. This leaves us just over 5 week to explore Alaska.

      I would very much appreciate some advice regarding the rough itinerary I have put together for the Alaska component of the road trip! Also if you have some suggestions on places to visit, that would be very well received. We are outdoorsy people and love all things nature - hiking, camping, kayaking, sighting animals and enjoying in beautiful landscapes! Also we on a somewhat budget, like the simple things in life and are not oppossed to roughing it.

      the itinerary

      Leg one: Southeast islands (9 days)

      Juneau: we have given ourselves 4 days + 1 day of travel (ferry to and from Skagway)
      points of interest (Mehandell Glacier, Perseverance trail, Alaskan brewing co, drive around the island and enjoy the scenery)

      4 days in admiralty island (looks absolutely stunning, I am still working out how we will get there / what we will do there, but i am very interested in the canoe route as well as exploring this amazing island.

      we could add more time for the southeast islands, if anyone has any suggestions? Also is 5 days to long in Juneau?

      leg two: Anchorage and Kenai Peninsula (18 days)

      Anchorage: 2 days

      Whittier / blackstone bay: 2 days
      - 2 days in whittier (one day paddeling backstone bay / interested in staying in one of the USFS cabins)

      Hope / Resurrection pass trail: 5 days
      - 1 day to look around hope
      - 4 days to backpack the resurrection pass trail (either this or Russian lake trail or we were thinking we can mountain bike the resurrection trail in a day and do the russian lakes trail as well)

      if anyone has done these, I would love to hear some feedback

      ninilchik / Homer / Kachemak bay: 5 days
      - might stop in ninilshik to go clamming
      - 2 days in homer (brewery, hikes, mountain biking, eating out, animals)
      - 2 days in Kechmak bay (want to stay in a yurt and just relax and enjoy the surrounds)

      Seward / Kenai Fjords national park (4 days)
      - 2 days in Seward (hikes, canoe, might spoil ourselfs and stay in some nice accomodation)

      leg three: Denali and Fairbanks (6 days)
      - 4 days in Denali
      - 2 days for fairbanks

      I Have left out 5 days outm as this can account for the amount of driving we will be doing!!!! lucky I am from australia, and am very used to driving long distances :)

    • Goingo to Juneau by ferry from Haines in a RV!

      Alaska Dec 14, 2015 at 11:51 AM

      Hello!! How are you guys?
      Ok, I have a serious question about part of my 2016 alaskan trip. I will be renting a RV in Anchorage for 3 weeks, and I really REALLY wanna go to Juneau with the RV. I wanna go to Whitehorse, drive a little in the Alaskan Highway and visit Haines as well. I don´t wanna go by plane. I was looking for some information about this and discover that we can make this going from Haines to Juneau by Alaska Marine Highway System. I know that it´s expensive but I think it will worth it.
      I cannot find any information of someone who has made it. Do you think it is possible and viable? We´re planning to stay for 2/3 days in Juneau, specially to make the Mendenhall Glacier hiking.

    • Wilderness Camping in Denali sometime between 17th -25th December 2015?

      Denali National Park and Preserve Dec 11, 2015 at 3:59 PM

      Hi all,

      I am hoping to camp in Denali sometime between 17th - 25th December, and was wondering whether there are any camping groups heading there anytime in that period? I do not feel confident enough (have not tested the extreme winter conditions at Denali) to go solo camping and was hoping to find fellow adventurers.

      Thanks,
      Behrad

      Photos ops from Ship -

      Alaska Dec 4, 2015 at 1:39 PM

      June Alaskan, Princess "Voyage of the Glaciers" cruise which has several hours of viewing of shores / glaciers from the ship. Do have a port side balcony and four days of land excursions. Primarily curious about equipment for photos from the ship. Do have a Digital SLR, a 400 mm zoom, and a wide angle18 mm. Have been ciphering on buying a spotting scope with a camera adapter. Concerns? The price and ease of use, as I have no experience with these. Also would they be of use in this situation, as seems most are promoted to birders? Naturally packing more stuff is always another debate. Thanks for all impute

      Personal knowlegdge of Tpurs?

      Skagway Dec 3, 2015 at 6:52 PM

      Please, any have knowledge of the following (or others to recommend) tours at Skagway -- Via train one direction, "Yukon Expedition & White Pass." 8 hours for $200 and / or "White Pass Bennett Lake." A bike ride might be tempting also; "Klondike to the Sea," under 3 hours for $115, I believe just about 14 miles. Another one that has caught my attention is a "Animal Planet Exclusive: Kroschel Wildlife Refuge." About 6 & 1/2 hours for $210. Yes this is a 13 hour layover on a Princess Cruise in June. Married couple, around sixty and first time north. Any and all information you care to share appreciated. Thank you.

      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!
