What to Pack to Alaska


Alaska's climate during the May-through-September travel season ranges from cool and rainy in the Inside Passage, to mild and sunny in the Interior and the Anchorage area. No matter which time of year you visit, dressing in layers is always a good idea. You'll be far more comfortable in a cotton turtleneck topped with a light sweater and windbreaker than bundled up in a parka. You can add and subtract layers as the weather warrants.

Use the Alaska packing lists and tips below as starters and modify them for your personal tastes and needs.
