Cheap car rental options for Dalton Highway, Alaska?

I'm thinking of doing a road trip on Dalton Highway in Alaska this September. The few car rental companies I found online that specifically allow vehicles to go on Dalton Highway seem to be incredibly pricey, around the range of $700-$1000 for 3-4 days. I also saw online someone mentioning about National Car allowing people to drive on unpaved roads at an extra cost, but upon calling them, this is untrue.

If so, which budget accommodations would you recommend in the area? We will rent a car so…

Feedback on Alaska Itinerary in late May

My partner and I are planning a trip to Alaska in late May for about 10 days. We are most interested in being outdoors, and going hiking, kayaking (flat water), and seeing beautiful scenery (e.g. glaciers) and we plan to camp as much as possible. I have been doing lots of research but seem a bit overwhelmed with everything we want to do in such a short period of time. I would love any feedback on our (very rough) itinerary, particularly for the end of the trip.

DAY 1: Fly into Anchorage
DAY 2:…
