    • Suggestions while in Alaska

      Alaska Jan 6, 2017 at 1:05 AM

      Planning a trip to Alaska on 18feb for about 1week. Planning to catch the northern lights. Do you think its the right time? Will fly into Anchorage and will take the train to Fairbank. Will spend a few days there. Any recommended place to visit? Thought of renting a car to move around, is it a good idea? Or good to just join any tours? Will spend a few days too in Anchorage after Fairbank. Any suggestions where and its a must to visit while in Alaska? Top priority is to try catch the northern lights. Recommended place to be? Thanks and hear from all of you.

      Can someone explain the best way to get my car, dogs and cats from Denver, Colorado, to Sitka, Alaska? I don't understand the ferry system very well.

      Anchorage to Sitka and back

      by AlexanderH5 Online Now Mar 11, 2013 at 1:12 PM

      Hi,

      I am planning a trip in June to Alaska to observe some of the historic sites (I research Russia's colonies in Alaska). My trip is only a week, but I would like to get from Anchorage to Sitka, then possibly to Kodiak , then back to Anchorage. Can ferries do this? What would be the least-expensive way? I will land and depart in Anchorage, so I need to be able to get back to anchorage. Any help or resources would be great.

    • A day in Sitka

      by Mum_J Online Now Aug 18, 2008 at 3:59 PM

      We are visiting on a cruise ship for a day. Can anyone suggest what we should do, not miss, etc? I am not too keen on being railroaded onto organised mass excursions unless it's the only way to see an area.

      Many thaks for any help.

      We want to immerse ourselves in the culture of Sitka. We will be docking there in September 11, from 8 am to 5pm and would like to unload some pink dollars. Interested in events, history, tours, coffee shops, shopping, restaurants, fishing, anything you have to offer. We would love to support any local gay business, but we do not exclude any good services.

    • Month-long Lodging in SItka

      by clairer Online Now Jun 15, 2003 at 6:47 PM

      HI, I live on Unimak Island on the Aleutian chain, and will be travelling to Sitka in August for a month of medical training. Housing is provided for me, but I was interested in my husband coming with me as a vacation for us, and this would not be appropriate in the current group housing arrangement. Does anyone know of any reasonable weekly rate lodging? Preferably a place with a kitchenette? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thankyou for your consideration. Claire
