Prepare To Go on Your Alaska Vacation

Now that you've decided an Alaskan adventure is right for you, you probably have a few questions. Please call us toll free at 800.478.4100. We are happy to answer to discuss your questions over the phone or, if you prefer, via email.

After living and working here in Alaska for 40 years, we've answered a lot of questions about the Great Land. You can find answers to typical questions about our vacations in Alaska on our Common Questions page.

While weather in Alaska can be extreme at times, during the summer months it's surprisingly mild and, if you're in luck, downright warm!

What to Bring and Wear

Kenai River Rafting and Fishing Trips operate rain or shine. Dress comfortably and warm for the out-of-doors, and dress in layers - you can shed your outer layers as the day warms up. Please pack any extra gear or clothing in a small day pack. Rain gear and boots will be provided for you for all rafting trips.  For our day-trip fishing guests, we encourage you to bring your own waterproof rain coat and rain pants.  (No vinyl ponchos, please.)
