What kind of gear do you need?
We can't, with 100% certainty tell you what will give you the optimal comfort in your overland adventure. But, we can give you a good idea as what you should bring and then you can add on whatever you might feel is essential to your personal needs.
We get lot's of questions about the weather conditions and climate in Alaska and Canada. All we can say is that the summer up north can be anything between average 15 to 25 C during days, nights can get pretty chilly. Weather can change pretty quickly, the best way to dress is in layers!
