When visiting lodges such as ours in the Juneau Glacier Bay area, even if visiting during the summer months, cold temperatures might be hard to deal with. Trips to Alaska’s remote fishing lodges require a special type of preparation you should keep in mind, let us guide you through the things you should do to keep warm and comfortably prepared when coming here for your fishing trip!
First and foremost, take a look at the equipment you’re bringing. Most lodges will have high-quality gear you can use, and so does ours, so you won’t have that much to worry about on that front if you’re visiting us. However, it is always good to be over-prepared. Make sure you have a heavy coat or two, gloves, a hat, and sturdy boots.
It might seem like common sense to bring these things, but making sure you’re well-equipped to deal with the cold weather is paramount to having a good time here.
Next on the list is the inner clothes themselves. Even if it’s not snowing or below freezing outside, the inside of the lodge can be quite chilly. We recommend layers upon layers of clothing that can be removed as necessary. They can be as comfortable as you might want, but make sure they bring you some cover from the cold! Woolen socks are also an Alaska must – they’ll help keep your feet warm even when wet.
Last but not least are habits. One of the best things you can do to stave off the cold is to keep moving. A good way to do this is by participating in some of the lodge’s activities, like going on hikes or fishing trips. If you’re planning on sitting around inside whether it’s in your room or in our common areas, you might want to make sure to bring a book or something else to occupy your time – it’ll help you occupy your thoughts and stop you from getting too chilly. However, we truly recommend enjoying the landscape however you can!
By following these simple tips, you’re sure to have a great time at any of Alaska’s remote fishing lodges! So what are you waiting for? Book your trip today and come for the fishing experience of a lifetime!
