ALASKA RIVER FLOAT TRIP PREPARATION (CLIMATE & WEATHER)

Sun, Rain, Winds, & SNOW!!!

Alaska's climate and weather conditions in addition to our out-of-the-way and not-so-easily accessible wilderness surroundings provide the ultimate outdoor assessment of your gearů in all probability for you and with certainly any preferences you may have in choosing suitable personal outerwear. Just about any average mid-summer's sunny day, the high-temperatures can range from 50-85 F degrees. Given a typical rainy day, on the other hand, the temperature will make a drastic drop to 37-45 F degrees, now and then even be accompanied by an unpredicted snowstorm or gale. 

Extreme temperature swings statewide can all too often drop to freezing or near freezing at nights. Alaska is Alaska - we have dynamic and distinctively diverse climate and weather factors that can significantly influence your wilderness river float trip plans.

Before your departure into Alaska's backcountry, it is especially important to be able to dress and gear up suitably according to sweeping weather changes. Beyond a shadow of a doubt you will want to pack all the essential individual gear for self-confidence, appropriate function, safeguarding good health, and your personal comforts throughout your stay on any Alaska wilderness float trip adventure.

Should your schedule set aside some free time, you can  just about all your gear necessities right here in Anchorage, Alaska. Sporting goods stores in your hometown may price items a little less expensively, yet you' find Anchorage pricing will be competitive and it likely bests traveling with extra checked baggage. It is not mandatory that you pack my entire suggested list, but please use sound planning, please consider our advice, and bring what will work best on your particular trip. Do not hesitate to ask questions and relate concerns. Preparation is key!!!
