Planning a vacation can be an exciting and challenging time. What to bring? How to travel? What’s the best time to travel? All these questions need to be answered to properly prepare for any trip, and vacationing to Tanaku Lodge is no exception.

Our Weather

Summers are mild, with temperatures between 50 and 65 F. Expect a mixture of sun and occasional rain. The weather is variable and any month can produce a string of sunny days, so make sure you bring layers of clothing to ‘dress up or down’ depending on the current weather conditions.

Fifty (50) pounds of luggage is the maximum per person the float planes will allow without incurring additional charges. We suggest packing your gear in duffle bags for easy storage and handling.
