Question by kas: What place in Alaska is the best for wildlife viewing, sled dog racing, kayaking/rafting, and flight seeing?

I am not going to Alaska, this is for a project at school. We have to pick a dream vacation and do planning for it. I think that I will “plan” it in the summer because there are more activities that I can do. If I wanted to go sled dog riding on the snow. What company could take me up on a glacier? I think that I will do my project on Seward, Alaska.

all at once? a place to live? to visit?

Races are held throughout the state, wildlife is pretty much everywhere, if your near a river someone is doing something on it.
OK flight seeing is mostly in high tourist areas, and usually associated with tour packages. Although some bush airlines offer trips to the rural villages. Not sure if you mean that or the tourist, fly around big breathtaking mountains flightseeing?

if these are things you want to do all in one visit, remember you have some summer and winter activities mixed here. There are companies that do dog sled rides in the summer, either with a cart or on glacier that they fly you up onto. but these are just rides not races.

For my money the rafting and flight seeing around Denali are pretty spectacular, both in the Nenena Cantwell area and in Talkeetna. But that is summer stuff.

Also the term ‘best’ could mean lots of things. Are you looking for the most remote or popular? are you an outdoors person?
I am sorry I can’t help you more without knowing what you want.
