Packing for Alaska?


Recommended Posts


I live in Fairbanks and today it is sort of chilly, cloudy and it might rain again, last week it was super warm and sunny though so you can never tell. Layers are the way to go.

Alaskans aren't really a good judge of what to wear though, we start wearing tank tops when people from the lower 48 would be wearing a wool jacket! HA!

If your going to be down in the southeast (ie. Juneau, Skagway...) I'd pack a light jacket (like a windbreaker, something waterproof), no heavy jacket needed, sweatshirts that you can wear over t-shirts, and bring a back pack that you can bring with you for going ashore, then you can take stuff off and put it on when you need it. Alaskan weather is pretty un-predictable.

The southeast is a wet cold, windy and rainy and when the weather is bad in the interior (Fairbanks) it's a super dry cold, so it's kind of eaiser to take.

You can go to www.juneau.org to look at the web cam and check out the weather.

For the interior you can go to www.newsminer.com for Fairbanks web cam and weather info.
