Trip Preparation

We have found that the key to a good Alaska Trip is Preparation.

Our Packing & Equipment list is a great way to get started gathering items you'll need for your trip. You may not need everything on this list for your particular vacation. Let us know if you have any questions.

Please check our recommended reading list for great Alaskan books. The following list of items will help make your trip more enjoyable. Most items not acquired before the trip may be purchased in Alaska. It is very important though that you assemble as many as possible before the trip.
