Outdoor Gear

Rafting a wild river

The specialized gear you will need to bring will be minimal. Remember that as a rule you need to dress in layers when you come to Alaska and don't forget your sunglasses. Even in wintertime, Southcentral Alaska can have bright sunlight. Compounded with the snow it can be almost blinding. Any specialized gear needed for a tour will most likely be provided by the tour company. Other items not to be forgotten are a camera and binoculars.
