What To Bring

WHAT TO BRING ON YOUR ALASKA TRIP WITH ISUMA GUIDEWORKS

Lake ViewAfter many years guiding Alaska wilderness trips, we have assembled this list of “must haves” and optional items for your adventure. You will be amazed at how much you don’t need on a trip adventuring into the Alaska “outback”! Note that due to wildlife considerations, we request that you also do not bring select items and hope this does not pose a problem for you.
