Alaska – Great Distances – 0ver 1000 M in 7 days

18.8: Alaska Arline flight Seattle – Anchorage,
From the airport we were picked up by RV rentals Anchorage. After taking over the camper we made our way to Seward unfortunately it was too smoky due to a forest fire to stay there, so we drove back and stayed at a lake near . 

19.8: Today we visited the Wildlife Refuge in Portage and made a short stop on the Turnaround Arm, then we drove to Denali National Park. We had booked the Denali campingground for 3 nights.

20.8:  After an 8 hours bus ride through Denali with a stop at the Visitor Center we had taken a lot of pictures and gained many new impressions. We chose the Denali Tour to the Eielson Visitor Center (Mile 66) because we were travelling with the grandparents and 8 hours bus ride is a long time. Although we booked the “not narriated” bus ride, our driver told us a lot and stopped whenever animals were to be seen.  A reservation is necessary as there are only limited spots. 

21.8: After the long bus ride the day before we were happy to explore the Denali National Park on our own. 

22.8: In the morning we left for Fairbanks, where we stayed at Fairbanks RV Park and visited the Pioneer Park we also made a detour to North Pole to say Santa hello.

23.8: Fairbanks – Anchorage
The 360 miles drive from Fairbanks to Anchorage took us more than 7 hours in between we stopped several times (Trans/Alaska Pipeline). The last night we stayed at anchorage Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park, which is relatively central so we could walk into the city and to the river.

24.8: Anchorage – Whittier 
After returning the camper we were taken to the airport, from there we went by bus (Alaska Cruise Transportation) to Whittier to board our ship for our 
Anchorage Vacouver Cruise.
