The most common question we are asked is what should I pack for my Alaska vacation? Alaska weather can vary from the morning to afternoon so we always suggest bringing multiple layers. For example, a t-shirt, thin long sleeve, sweatshirt or zip up waterproof jacket. You won’t need a giant parka or snow gear as we don’t reach freezing temperatures in the summer.
Depending on what month you are visiting us our weather can vary from mid 50’s to high 70’s! In these months we get everything from sunny to rainy days. Our weather is pretty unpredictable but the best part about Alaska is that there is always adventure around the corner no matter what the weather. We have ponchos and umbrellas in every mini-executive coach.
Our tours are very active so you will want to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move around. We suggest comfortable walking shoes and extra socks for times such as the glacier walks that might be a little muddy.
You’ll also want to make sure you have your camera and phone chargers with plenty of storage or memory as Alaska has breathtaking views all around you. We also suggest having a little day bag with you where you can access your snacks, extra jacket or socks, and wallet. Your luggage will typically be in our luggage trailer or in your accommodations during your excursions so having a backpack accessible in the mini-coach is helpful for keeping all your things together and accessible.
