Alaska 2024 Tour - Need opinion on when to schedule
Investigating traveling with a caravan or similar starting and ending in BC. Most have two bookings for similar number of days (48 - 50) days: June-July or July-August. Most cover all of the high points we want to see inland and the coast.
Without opening a discussion on merits of caravans, I would like opinions on which period of time might be the best and why, from those that did either or both.
Bugs and rain are a given, I expect. What about crowds at popular locations? Late August weather? Ability to schedule free day excursions (Flightseeing, train trips, fishing, etc..) without reserving ahead?
We're coming from Connecticut, so a significant portion of this trip is going to be getting there and back as well.
Thanks in advance.
