Alaska 5 Day Trip Ideas

5-Day Alaska Trip Ideas

What can you see on a 5-day Alaska vacation? How about two of the three road-accessible national parks—Denali and Kenai Fjords! Or go check out the snow-capped mountains, massive glaciers, and charming small towns that dot the Kenai Peninsula. A 5-day trip is the most popular choice to combine with a 7-day cross-gulf cruise in Alaska’s Inside Passage, docking at (or departing from) Whittier or Seward. And in winter, 5 days allows you to experience snow sports and the surreal Northern Lights.
