WE are planning a 3-week trip in September. One week in Anchorage at a conference (we've been there before, albeit in winter). Several days in Kenai Penn. Two-three days Denali area, 3-4 days Fairbanks (with Arctic day drive). Then we have a few days from Fairbanks which I think would be spent driving to Wrangell, Tok, and to Valdez, then backtracking to Anchorage via Palmer.
Is this a good balance for a pair of older, non-hiking travelers? We will rent a car and have hotel reservations in most places except for those 3 nights after Fairbanks before heading into Anchorage for the conference.
What should we see in the Wrangell area?
We don't need fancy accommodations or fancy food or night life.
A life goal is to see the Aurora Borealis while sitting in a hot tub or pool--Chena Hot Springs in late September?
Thanks so much.
