TRAVEL TO ALASKA:
Please make sure you have your proper documents (US Drivers License or
passport) with you, your credit card and camera/video recorder.
If you booked a rental car with us that you will pick up upon arrival in
Alaska, please make sure you provide us with your flight arrival information so
that your car is ready for you when you arrive!
Also remember that Alaska has its own time zone. Alaska is 1 hour behind
Pacific Standard Time / 2 hours behind Mountain Standard Time / 3 hours behind
Central Standard Time / 4 hours behind Eastern Standard Time.
WHAT TO PACK:
Temperatures from June through August range between 60°F / 16° C to 80°F /
27°. May and September are typically cooler, with temperatures ranging between
45°F / 7° C to 55°F / 13° C. Temperatures in the winter can range from -40
degrees to 40 degrees.
If summer or winter the general rule for Alaska is casual, comfortable
clothing that can be worn in layers. The first layer should be something thin
and next to the skin (try to avoid cotton). The second layer adds warmth and
allows you the option of removing if it gets warmer (mostly fleece or similar).
The third layer should protect you against rain and wind if necessary.
For day cruises into Prince William Sound and Kenai Fjords National
Park, for example, we recommend an extra layer including a scarf, hat and
gloves, as it can be chilly on the boats - even in the summer!
Comfortable walking shoes or water repellent hiking boots are also
If you visit in the winter, your outer layer should
protect you against the cold and wind. Even so jeans are comfortable, they are
not ideal when it is really cold. Ski pants are protecting better against the
cold weather. Do not forget to bring a warm scarf, hat, gloves, and boots.
