Thanks for your advice and I am going to take it. We will do the Whale watching in Juneau, and the heli/dog thing in Skagway. We are going from Vancouver to Anchorage, then on to a 5 day land tour with Princess. Excited as you can imagine. We have been waiting for Alaska for a long time. We are on Dawn on July 28, and we are hoping for good weather. This is the 3rd Princess tour that we have done and they do wear us out, but it suits our older family members. It gives us time to run around a lot as the family always has something to do. We love it.
Have no idea as to what to do in Denali, and Fairbanks. And there is the Train & Bears. Ah so much to find out.
