Just do it yourself, okay?

To begin with, plan on a minimum of two weeks. Here’s an exercise in geographical perspective for you: Lay a transparent map of Alaska over a map of the South 48 to the same scale. See, the map of Alaska overlays both borders and both coasts of the South 48. You wouldn’t plan on touring the continental United States in two weeks, now, would you?

So here is one possible, admittedly quick-and-dirty, summer and Southcentral specific itinerary just for you. I’ve personally experienced most of the recommendations I make, and the books came right off my shelf.

  1. My sister and I used your quick and dirty two week itinerary to plan our first tour of Alaska. Covid made us delay, and then shorten it, but every single thing Dana recommended was spot on. We had a great time, and look forward to more trips.

  2. Spent 11 days on my second visit. Made it to Anchorage, Whitter, Stewart, back up to Anchorage then to Denali, Fairbanks, Arctic Circle, Coldfoot, down the Richardson back to Anchorage. With varies stops it was not enough time and over 1500 miles on the RV we rented.

    I plan for another visit with lots more time.
