Traveling to Alaska, especially if it’s off the beaten track, can be exciting and part of the adventure.

Use soft-sided suitcases or duffel bags. When checking them in, remove straps and buckles which tend to hang up on conveyor belts.

See our packing list page for items necessary for your particular combo.

Guests arrive in Anchorage, then fly to Kodiak city on either Alaska Airlines or Ravn Alaska. From Kodiak, there are several small airlines that provide daily service to Old Harbor. We recommend that if you are overnighting on the way here, if possible, Kodiak is a good choice. There, you can pick up your fishing/hunting license (if you have not purchased it online), any refreshments that you may require, and it will make it easy to catch the morning flight to Old Harbor.

Before leaving Kodiak to Old Harbor, please remember to call us when your plane is about to depart. You will be met at the airstrip and taken to the Old Harbor Lodge, where you can get settled before heading out on your adventure. A packed lunch and snacks will be provided to take with you and dinner will be waiting when you return at the end of the day.

For more information about specific items, see our PACKING LIST.
