Frequently Asked Questions

Please read through our FAQs below.
What do I pack when making the trip to Interior Alaska?

Layers, bring plenty of clothes to layer on and peel off. There are bugs in the late spring and early summer - mosquitoes and no-seeums and a few horseflies that mean business - long sleeves are good protection. A light jacket in the warmer season, warmer layers as things cool down. Spring comes with break-up; as things warm up, puddles form and rain begins to fall; boots and rain gear might not be a bad idea. Summers are pleasantly warm, fall is pleasantly cool, and winter is a whole other story - COLD. The newer cold-weather gear is light, and great for layers. Wool works, too, but think about a wind break as it blows here. Gloves, socks, and pocket hand warmers are never a bad idea.
