Hi travelers,

We have a cruise in Alaska next August. Please advise what kind of weather we should expect there?
I forgot to mention that we like hiking. cat

Hello Flower_77,

Alaska in August is quite a pleasant place.

The temperatures are moderate, a little lower than in the 'lower 48s' as they call them, but still not cold.

Please note that rain is common in Alaska so check your weather forecast from the ship.

If you are cruising in a glacier area - it gets really cold near the glaciers, so you will need a nice warm jacket as well.

Same is if you are hiking to the Juneau glaciers.

Alaska is perfect for hiking - beware of the bears, though Laughing

... And don't forget good shoes! I did hiking in Skagway - the ground is muddy and slippery but believe me - it deserve all the efforts! Just follow the signs to the lower lake. August is the best time for Cruising in Alaska!
