We're leaving on a cruise from Whittier on May 24 and are probably going to fly into Anchorage on May 21, giving us three nights. Considering driving (or taking bus) up to Denali in the afternoon of the 21st, which would give us all day the 22nd and part of the day on the 23rd to explore the park. Will then return to Anchorage for the night of the 23rd and then bus or train down to Whittier to do a PWS tour and board the ship.
A few questions:
Is this enough time at Denali?
Is it worth going up there in late May when the shuttle bus will only go as far as Toklat?
If not, any other suggestions for our three nights? We've spent a few days in Anchorage before, so don't have much interest in hanging around the city.
Thanks for your help!!
