What To Bring


What to bring Now that you’ve booked your trip to Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge it’s time to make sure you have everything you need for your stay. The most important thing is that you are warm, dry and comfortable while on the river and around camp. Please try to limit the amount of luggage you bring and please use duffel bag type luggage, rather than suitcases, as they are much easier to load and transport to our Lodge when using Air Taxi charter flights.

We have come up with a list of things we think you must have for your week in the Alaskan bush. Anything else you want to bring is up to you, for example:

Casual wear, Books, Camera, Mp3 player
