Has anyone been to Alaska?

I leaving for a cruise to Alaska and 3 days on land and I so confused what to pack! Everything I read  says wear layers, but I am always cold so I feel like I am not the average packer!  I just want to know sweaters vs.sweatshirts how many jackets...Please help!



Re: Has anyone been to Alaska?

  • I know you heard it already, but layers.

    We started our land tour in Fairbanks and it was between 75-80 there, and got much colder on our cruise.  I took a few short sleeve shirts, but mostly long sleeved shirts, a couple of thermal silks, one jacket and one rain jacket.  I did not take any sweaters or sweatshirts.  I wore jeans in Fairbanks, but mostly on the excursions I wore thermal silks and lightweight Columbia type breathable pants.  Honestly sweatshirts and jackets are so inexpensive there if you need something you can just buy it.

    Don't forget gloves, a scarf, and ear muffs or some type of hat.

  • Alaska is gorgeous but remember ... layers!!!  When we went on our cruise out of Seattle, we got several rainy days but aside from the rain, it was beautiful!!!
