Alaska Weather | Alaska Bear Camp Itinerary
The state of Alaska is so big there are really no generalizations that can be made about the weather, except that it can range from miserable to glorious. As previously mentioned, we will have the amazing opportunity to be out in nature watching bears in their remote, natural habitat. Keep in mind, however, to experience these up-close encounters, we will be walking around while out in the elements. And during the times in which we operate our adventures, it is not unusual for coastal Alaska to experience days of rain and cooler weather. Thus, it is imperative that you come prepared for the possibility of inclement weather and try not to be dismayed should it occur. It is, after all, part of Alaska’s character. Storms and clouds can add drama, especially in the mountains. Photographically, days with a high overcast soften the light and reduce harsh contrast; it is the best kind of light for close-ups of flowers and for wildlife. Around the time of the summer solstice, when sunset occurs near midnight, it is possible to take photographs for almost eighteen hours a day.
