In advance of departure, we received a digital Expedition Guide from Lindblad for our trip, which included a detailed packing list, as well as thorough information about binocular and camera equipment. I would offer the following additional suggestions to make the journey even more enjoyable.
Although the recommended headgear is a wool ski cap, it cannot counter direct sun. The Squall Cap from Lands’ End is insulated, and has a fold-down flap that covers ears and the back of the neck, as well as a brim large enough to block direct sunlight. I worried that the brim might cause it to fly off on windy days, but that never proved to be a problem.
Fleece Boot Insoles
Knee-high waterproof boots are a must. Even though we wore wool socks, I inserted fleece insoles. Others complained of cold feet; we did not.
