Going to Alaska this summer. What is the best time / place for hiking, camping, etc?

We are coming at a time which can take the aurora borealis. Is there a particular moment of this year is at its peak? We also want to do some remote camping / hiking and do some observation whales. What city would be best to fly into?

During the summer, the Alaska Railroad offers daily service to Denali National Park. Trains leave from both Anchorage and Fairbanks at 8:15 AM, arriving at noon from 3:45 Fairbanks and Anchorage. Trains leaving from the park comes at 8:15 PM on both Anchorage and Fairbanks. Rates vary throughout the season with prices between $ 43 and $ 54 for a ticket from Fairbanks to Denali, and between $ 103 and $ 129 from Anchorage to Denali. Train tickets can be booked through the Alaska Railroad Due to the changing climatic conditions and sometimes extreme, that Alaska is so popular for, you have to pack properly. While extreme temperatures are unusual during conventional tourist season (June to mid September) rainfall and adequate wind protection is vital. A layered approach to clothing is the way forward, which base consists of layers of breathable or wool or hair shirts, thermal middle, and most importantly, wind and waterproof outer layer (jacket and pants). Also this you must take strong and waterproof shoes (eg boots or walking shoes).
