We are planning a 6-4-11 SB from Anch/Whittier. We plan on arriving 5 days early to do some land touring on our own. I just want some feedback on my plans and will I have enough time.
I have done the Inside Passage so the cruise part is easier for us to plan this time.
5-30-11 Fly to Anchorage Pick up rental car find our motel and crash!
5-31-11 Tour Anchorage and just relax. Looking for thing to do there.
6-1-11 Drive to Denali and sight see along the way-Stay the night.
6-2-11 Tour Denali on one of the buses or??? We don't know the
tour company yet so let me know what you think on that also.
Stay the night
6-3-11 Drive back to Anchorage and sight see what we missed on the
way up to Denali.
6-4-11 Drive to the airport and turn in the car and catch a airport to
ship transfer to Whittier.
The only excursion we are planning is whale watching and we are looking for suggestions on that one.
We would like suggestions for a Denali tour company you have used and would use again or even would never use again.
We have looked at rental car companies and it looks like about $100 to $150 per day. What company did you use? We will set this up way in advance.
Also where would you stay at Denali? We don't need anything great there since we will be on a tour bus all day. To us the room is not the destination.
Thanks for looking and let me know if it is realistic.
