Alaska Trip Itinerary – 7-nights/8-days

You may be wondering ‘what is there to do for 7-nights and 8-days in Alaska?’ So much! This Alaska Trip Plan concentrates on the Anchorage-Denali area, with plenty to do in a 7-night and 8-day itinerary. We have some cherished Denali memories from our 4-days in Denali, one of the best parks in Alaska. We believe the best way to visit Alaska is a road trip where you can visit each area in more depth.

After spending 10 weeks in Alaska last summer, I can offer the best of our experience and help you consider your itinerary, and this series can be your Alaska trip planner. This post, How To Plan Anchorage-Denali National Park 7-Night Itinerary, is a second itinerary in a series on Alaska. My last itinerary post was Anchorage to the Alaska Kenai-Peninsula. It started in and returned to Anchorage, so we head to Denali and back to Anchorage in this itinerary.  (Denali north to Fairbanks will be a separate Itinerary).

Do you want to know ‘Why visit Valdez?’ and the top paid and free things to do in Valdez?  Coastal beauty is surrounded by some of the tallest mountains in the world in the port town of Valdez Alaska on the Prince William Sound.  This remote small Alaskan town offers top Alaska attractions – historical and outdoor adventures.  Most tourists don’t make it to Valdez since it is not on the way to anywhere else in Alaska, and it’s far from most of Alaska’s ‘big name’ destinations.  With less tourism in this beautiful place, Tom and I were drawn to it.
