Hi Alaska Community,
Here is everything I can give you and I hope you have a moment to help us out...
My husband and I want to travel to Alaska in April or May. We have nothing booked yet as we are having trouble knowing where to begin. We are both 32, adventurous, love the outdoors and the kicker is that I will be between 25-29 weeks pregnant. I am still able to do almost everything and get around just fine but I'd say no rafting or too highly dangerous sports.
We would like to spend 5 nights/6 days on this trip and we would love to be able to:
be outdoors and enjoy alaska
husband to raft or something extra adventurous while wife takes a spa day :-)
We'd stay in a hotel, lodge, B&B but we want it to have a spa (or ability to get massages) and around $150-$250 per night or less. We like to travel by train or car so we'd like to possibly see 2-4 different places on our trip but max out our sleeping accommodations to 2 max, since we only have 5 nights.
We prefer the country-side over city-side as we've visited a lot of cities and would rather be outdoors. I love quaint towns, friendly locals, and great food! We love food. We also don't need a travel guide 100% of the time but if there was a wildlife viewing company, etc. that we should get in touch with in a certain city, we'd love to know who. We're willing to spend the money if it's a great tour company.
As I mentioned above, any help as to where to start or trip ideas would be hugely helpful! What month is better? What areas of Alaska sound like us or what we're looking for? Any hotel or accommodation recommendations? Any trip companies to travel with? We'd be coming from San Jose, CA.
We have thought about a cruise but my husband worries he wont be able to get off the cruise enough to truly enjoy the experience of Alaska.
Thank you for your time to help us!
I can't wait to plan our last non-baby trip with your help.
