Seward, Alaska sits on the northern most edge of a temperate rainforest, averaging 90" of precipitation a year.  You can expect your visit to have a combination of sunny and rainy days.  In our experience late May into early July tend to be the driest with an increase in rain beginning in mid-July.  August is a bit rainier and September usually marks the beginning of fall in Seward.  However, none of these rules are hard and fast.

Be sure to pack good, high-quality rain jackets and pants.  Don't skimp.  Inexpensive rain gear won't cut it if we have a good rainy stretch.  Also, pack layers.  We recommend wool or synthetic layers, avoiding cotton which does not retain its warmth when it is wet.

With the right layers, and a little proper planning any activity in Seward is great fun rain or shine!  Would you like more advice about packing for your Alaska trip?  Just ask!
