We have just returned from a 12 day trip to Alaska. The weather was a mixture of rain and sun but we had gone prepared for the rain and it didn't spoil our trip or prevent us from doing anything. We hired an RV in Anchorage through Great Alaska Adventure...We travelled along the Seward Highway...Seward was a lovely town, lots of interesting little shops. We recommend the Bear Creek RV site, we stayed two nights here, one night free as we booked a day cruise through the owners. The showers and toilets here were good as was the bar.
We had a great day out with Major Marine Tours. The staff were very pleasant, the Ranger gave an informative talk and the food was excellent and there was plenty of it! Even though the weather wasn't great we still got to see plenty of wildflife and the glaciers were amazing.
Sterling was our next overnight stop at Real Alaskan Cabins and RV site. Lovely site with clean showers and toilets. Lovely setting in the woods.
On to Homer and the first night we spent there we ate at a restaurant called The Homestead, just over 8 miles out of town but really worth it. The food - especially the King Crab - was fantastic although if we hadn't have been rushed through our meal we may well have had a pudding which looked great. The campsite on the beach was ok, lovely setting. We had a day Halibut fishing with Rainbow tours which was great fun, everyone was very pleasant and I would recomend them.
As the weather was to improve some what we decided to head back towards Seward and stayed in Renfro's RV site just past Moose Pass. One of the best sites of our trip, it was quiet, lovely owners who were very helpful and the best showers and restrooms ever! The following morning in glorious sunshine, we walked up to the top of Exit Glacier - not to be missed but not to be attempted by the faint hearted - It took us 6 hours to go up and back and some of the trail was very dificult, but even though I couldn't walk for several days after, it was worth it, the views were amazing and we got to see bears (a little too close for comfort).
The next day we spent on the river with Alaska River Company, the weather wasn't fantastic but the staff were very friendly and did their best, we had a good day with them and I would definately use them again. From here we travelled to Portage Glacier RV site, another very good one and the next day visited the Animal Refuge Centre which has to have been one of the highlights.
Our last night was spent in Anchorage RV Park in Muldoon Road, a lovely sight...we had a great time in Alaska and will definately be going back to investigate the rest of it.
Your website was a great help in planning the trip, most of the companies we used I found through you.
Thanks very much and we look forward to coming back.
