Why only a week? You'd be rushing around. Definitely visit Talkeetna and take a Mahay's River Boat tour.

Fly into Anchorage, rent a car & do your own tour! Take a day cruise out of Whittier. Take a shuttle bus into Denali Nat'l Park to Wonder Lake. Trip advisor is a great resource.

Neither Anchorage or Fairbanks are anything special, as far as city attractions go. Anchorage is in a much better location for visitors, but your time will be better spent renting a car and getting out of the city. A week spent on the Kenai Peninsula, staying in Homer and Seward could be a really good time. A full day is plenty of time for the attractions in Anchorage.

I recommend taking the train to Seward, then going on a day cruise. It's an all-day affair, and you'll no doubt come back exhausted — but it really is worth doing. The train ride is relaxing and highly scenic.
