Alaska Trip Update: Travel Budgets

As of today’s writing, I am three weeks out from my Alaska Expedition. Planning and logistics are done. Reservations and deposits paid. Travel medical and extraction insurance confirmed.

Gear is ready, field tested and mostly packed.

Let’s break down the budget:

Airfare (MIA to ANC first class) $2,500 *
All lodging for 3 weeks avg. 200/ night $4,200
fishing guides and float planes + tips $7,000
4×4 off road truck rental 3 weeks$5,500
Other Exp. food, gas, etc.$2,500
Cash for contingencies $2,000
New gear purchased for Alaska (can be repurposed in Iceland)$2,500
Total trip est. $26,200
* used points

This trip has been in the planning and financial saving stages for more than a year. Points earned from this year’s Alaska trip will actually pay for most of next year’s Amazon trip (air, lodging and gear).
