What I wore in Alaska

Recommended Posts

I searched and read almost every post about clothing for Alaska and still wasn't assured of what to bring.  Hopefully this will help others.  (Different excursions/hiking trips, etc. would, of course, involve a different set of clothing, so take that into consideration.  Except for Ketchikan, we mostly stayed in town.


Background:  60 year old woman

Day one:  travel day/sail away--comfortable dress pant/blouse/warm sweater for plane

Day two:  sea day--70° sunny--leggings/tunic top

Day three:  Ketchikan--51° cold & rainy--water resistant pant/long sleeved top/fleece jacket/rain coat/Sperry boots

Day four:  Juneau--57° cloudy--jeans/long sleeved top/fleece jacket/rain coat (for the wind)

Day five:  Skagway--64° sunny--same jeans/t shirt/fleece jacket (did get a bit warm)

Day six:  Glacier Bay--48° sunny--same jeans/t shirt+long sleeve top/fleece jacket (warm in the sun but wind was cool)

Day seven:  sea day--50° partly sunny--jeans/top/sweater

Day eight:  travel day--same dress pant as day one/top/sweater


We dressed for dinner every night as we ate in the dining room.  Did I overpack? Of course, but I wore almost everything once.  Watch the weather forecasts before you leave, as that will help with packing.  Good luck!

Currently on land portion of cruise. The weather is wonderful. Sunny in the 70’s. Shorts and t shirts for me. DW in t shirt and leggings. 

Mt. Denali is breathtaking.
