add binoculars to the list. Camera with good zoom. Winter 'skull' cap.

Patience, a sense of adventure,rain coat, and $$$ for tips. Appetite for salmon, energy and perseverance if you want to pan for gold, and an open mind for the beautiful land you are about to experience. AWESOME!!!

Definitely pack binoculars and rain gear.

Water proof boots......

One of most memorable cruise was my HAL Alaskan cruise with an additional week in Denali. We took a helicopter ride, a sea plane, train ride, did white water rafting and landed on ice fields looking down into crevasses. Watching calving of glaciers and seeing bald eagles, salmon swimming upstream and dolphins among other wild animals are sights that I will never forget. We took another trip that included two stops in Alaska that were equally fun. Everyone should see Alaska. It is an exhilarating experience!

We did bring rain gear, binoculars, cameras, panned for gold and ate plenty of salmon at salmon bakes. Didn't bring the skull cap, though, but had a warm hood on my heavy jacket. In August we will be traveling to Iceland & Greenland among other stops, so I was interested in the recommendations.
