The 10 Rules For Visiting Alaska
My accumulation of 25 years of watching visitors make the same mistakes over and over again has led me to list 10 basic rules to assist a visitor better prepare for their Alaska Adventure:
1) Do—Purchase Travel Insurance.
2) Do—Leave at least one day open between reserved tours.
3) Do—Make your reservations well in advance. (7-9+ months is good)
4) Do—Map out the distances between your activities and consider the time you will need to spend traveling between points.
5) Do—Research Alaska Department of Fish and Game information pages.
6) Do—Speak with your tour company's wilderness guide to get a clear understanding of what is offered and what your expectations are.
7) Do—Choose one primary Region of Alaska for each visit, i.e. The Kenai Peninsula for example.
8) Do—Contact the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council for accurate Regional information.
9) Do Not—Generalize Alaska information: i.e. salmon runs for example, as the various Regions throughout Alaska and even individual rivers within those regions can vary tremendously, which affects the fishing and the bear viewing. Vested, knowledgeable local guides are your best source of accurate information here.
10) Do Not—Attempt to see the entire State of Alaska in one 10 day trip.
