The best approach is to bring clothes that can be layered: more layers for cooler, windier weather, fewer layers for warm, dry days.
Be sure to also bring:
- A lightweight, waterproof coat or jacket, as well as a sweater or warm vest for strolling the decks of the ship and for glacier viewing
- A warm hat and gloves
- Men may want to add an extra pair of slacks, but they’ll find that the same basic dress theme works for them, too (there is no place in Alaska a man cannot go in a sport coat and slacks. Also, a dark suit is appropriate for dinner on board ship)
- Sturdy walking shoes for everyday use (two pairs are suggested) both leather, to stand up to rain if necessary, and a pair with a good arch support
- One or two pairs of dress shoes to accompany your dinner outfit
- Always go on www.weather.com for more info. You can get a 10 day forecast.
Weather in the baltics can vary greatly so come prepared. Temperatures in the summer tend to range from about 40 – 77 degrees.
