What to Bring
You’ll have a lot more fun if you pack a few essential items.
- Hat and gloves — if you’re going to be on or near the water (and of course you will be) bring along a hat and gloves. You’ll be oh so more comfortable and able to enjoy your adventures if you’re warm.
- Layers — similar to hat and gloves . . . tried and true sweater, fleece, rain jacket, something with a hood. Alaska weather is very changeable, and you’ll want to be able to peel on and peel off as needed.
- Slippers or slipper socks — Alaskan hosts will ask you to remove your shoes to avoid bringing sand and grit inside. If you’d rather not pad around in your socks, bring a pair of slippers or the non-skid slipper socks. You’ll find lots of wood floors.
