    • 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 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


      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)
      - 2 days in Kenai Fjords national Park (boat tour, glaciers, animals, hiking)

      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 :)

      Let me know what you think! if we are spending to long is a town, or missing places. We do have the potenital to add up 10 more days onto the trip, so if you have any other suggestions?

      Cheers, Mel

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.

      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!

      I'm a 31yr old solo female hiker going to denali in two weeks by train. Im not very experienced in backpacking/ camping,and am on a strict budget. What gear do you most suggest is absolutely essential in your experience, and what trails, areas to camp do you suggest?

      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.

    • Travel Alaska from 18th to 25th Sep

      Alaska Jul 28, 2015 at 10:10 AM

      Hi All,

      I am thinking to visit Alaska from 18th to 25th Sep. I am interested in hikie, join tour or watch wild animals in Denali and other national park, , northern light, Glacier Cruise and any adventure or activity tours.
      However, I heard that they are going to close around middle of September and it start to have snow.

      Is it possible to enjoy above things during 18th to 25th? If it is difficult, are there any recommended options I can enjoy in Alaska? If it is necessary or recommendation, it is possible to rent a car.

      Tips / Recommendatios are highly appreciated, thanks,
