I am thinking of planning a trip to Alaska with my 16 year old daughter and my 5 year old grandson. I've done Europe for so many years we want to do something new. We would have 5 full days to spend in late Oct. I saw about dog sled rides, snow machine rides, northern lights, etc. These sound like so much fun and would be interested in these types of things. We unfortunately don't ski. Thoughts of places to visit with these age groups. What is the weather like in Oct? Once I can determine "where" then I can start looking at accomodations.
Any input would be fabulous.
