What to pack for
an Alaska Vacation

We’re here to ensure your trip is an experience of a lifetime. That means helping you create a packing list for your weeklong stay at Soaring Eagle so that you can focus on what really matters: your Alaskan adventure!

Weather along the Kenai Peninsula can be unpredictable, even in the summer. This checklist is designed to prepare you for all weather scenarios.

Clothes for Summer

Comfortable Layers

In Alaska, layers are essential. Layering your clothes will allow you to stay dry and comfortable, and will let you make small adjustments throughout the day.

  • Hooded jacket
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Insulating socks
  • Sturdy shoes or boots
  • Thermals

Rain Gear

Rain gear is recommended for any outdoor adventure.

Protective Wear

Don’t forget sunglasses and sunscreen. A hat to keep sun off your face is always a good idea when fishing.

Additional Packing

Fishing Equipment

If you wish to bring your own fly fishing gear, we recommend an 8 or 9 wt fly rod and rod casing for protection, in addition to any other gear you may want to bring along.

Personal Items

Our cabins are equipped with hair dryers, however, all other personal toiletries must be brought in. Don’t forget to pack your prescriptions.

Other Essentials

No Alaskan adventure is complete without a stunning set of photographs to document your time here. Don’t forget your camera/phones and charging equipment.

Just In Case

Even if you are not prone to motion sickness, we recommend bringing along motion sickness medications on all sea excursions. There are many preventative methods on the market, including prescriptions that won’t leave you feeling drowsy.
