Frequently Asked Questions...
Do I need to bring any gear?
Yes, you need to bring a sleeping pad (insulated) and a sleeping bag ( 3-season). You can rent gear depending on availability. Please ask for pricing.
What clothes do I bring?
The best way to dress in Alaska is in layers. It can be pretty warm but also pretty chilly – temperature fluctuates a lot even during one day. Please bring hiking boots (at least sturdy shoes), preferably water proof and rain gear. We have more information on what to bring here.
Meals and group participation
On an overland journey you are more than just a passenger, you’re part of the crew, pitching in to set up camp, shop for food, cook and generally help out. We operate a rota system, dividing the group into smaller units, so that these duties are shared equally amongst the group. These jobs will include things like collecting water and firewood, loading the back locker, etc. While camping on overland journeys, all meals cooked on campsites will be included and this means you will help once in a while preparing dinner. If you have any dietary requirements please tell us at the time of booking and also remind us at your welcome meeting. A typical camp breakfast might be toast with spreads, cereal and sometimes something hot such as eggs or pancakes as well as tea and coffee. Lunch is almost always a sandwich heaped high with healthy salad and assorted fillings, sometimes with fruit to follow. Dinner might be a BBQ, risotto, pasta dish and there is always the chance to try some local food.
Our overland vehicle will be equipped with 12 volt sockets and USB charging points to charge your iPod, MP3 player, camera, laptop and mobile phone. Please be aware that only a limited number of equipment can be charged at a time and you cannot operate high voltage gear like hair dryers. Batteries may also be recharged from hotel room wall sockets and the majority of the campsites we stay at have electrical outlets so please bring along your normal charging adapters as well. You will need to ensure that you have the correct country adaptor for your specific charger.
Activities Before or After the Trip
If you would like to have any information on activities available around Anchorage or any other of our departure cities feel free to contact us. There are tours departing from the Hostels and you can explore downtown and the surroundings by foot or rental bikes. There is several cafes and restaurants next to all of our launching points serving breakfast and snacks.
WIFI and Cell Phone Reception
Alaska is called “The Last Frontier” for a reason! But even Canada and some of the National Parks in the US have no cell phone reception at times. Some of the campsites and lodges we stay do offer wifi, but some of them run on satellite connection, which is not as reliable and fast as broadband. However we will make you aware of internet cafes and any wifi possibilities that will occur during our trip.
Some campsites and hostels will have washer and dryer available that usually operate with coins.

Most of the campsites we stay are established campgrounds with flush toilets and hot showers. However we try to get out into the wilderness and this means some of our campsites are bush camps with an outhouse only and no showers. But don’t worry, you will be rewarded with spectacular views on glaciers and mountains and the next campsite we go to the shower will feel even better;) If you are in doubt, please contact us: we also do carry water with us, so that you can have a basic wash, if you’d like to.
Joining the Tour/Meeting Points/Leaving the Tour
We will be meeting at 6 pm at the hostel / hotel of the day your tour starts. You will find a welcome note at the reception that day to provide you with any further information. Please bring your passport and insurance details (if not send beforehand) with you. We can’t wait to meet you! If you are flying out the same day the tour ends please contact us to make sure you have enough time to get to the airport. Usually a late evening flight or a flight out the next day is recommended.
