I have a long time client, who trusts my travel style, who emailed me and asked for trip ideas.

Here are some fabulous suggestions I came up with. What do you think?
Don’t think of the ship’s purpose as “volunteer activities.” Think of it as a chance to interact with the local population. Because this is how the local population lives.

Overall, I really liked having an extra day in Anchorage to start relaxing and get a small taste of the area before our cruise, and I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of whether or not you are visiting Denali before your cruise. Although we didn’t squeeze them into this trip, there are a variety of other things we could have done, including a trip to Aleyska Ski Resort, a cruise on Portage Lake, a trek on Matanuska Glacier, and even booking a charter tour to see Denali via plane in one day! If we had more than 2 days, I wouldn’t choose to stay the whole time in Anchorage, but for one extra night, it was a great beginning to a wonderful trip!
