Alaska Packing Tips!

WHAT TO PACK FOR TRAVEL TO ALASKA

Clothing is always a primary consideration when travelling to Alaska. Emphasis should be based on comfort because the dress code is informal and casual.

Temperatures in Alaska during the summer range from 60F to 80F. Evenings and early mornings are cooler, from 40F to 55F. In late August and September you could encounter cooler temperatures and slightly fewer hours of sunlight, as fall arrives early (it's a great time to view the Northern Lights).

Casual, active sportswear is the best option, as you will likely be enjoying tours and activities outdoors. You'll want comfortable clothes and good walking shoes, and the ability to be layered for everything from sunny afternoons to chilly nights. As the weather can be unpredictable, a warm jacket is advisable.

Here is a list of suggested items:

Daytime
Water repellent coat or jacket
Rain hat or small umbrella
Comfortable walking shoes
Sweaters
T-Shirts
Pants
Shorts

Evening
Warm coat (temperatures can get lower in the evening)
Same attire as worn during the day - casual (no tank tops, flip flops or shorts in the dining room)
On a typical 7 night cruise there are two formal nights; for ladies pack a dress, pant suit or fancy skirt & top for men package a jacket & tie or suit

Other Recommended Items
Cameras
Binoculars
Travel alarm clock
Insect repellent
Sunglasses
Sunscreen

If you are taking an Alaska cruise please contact your Alaska Specialist regarding the evening attire on board your cruise ship.
