What to Bring

What We Recommend You Bring

During your stay at Ka-Na-Chi-Hih, we participate in several land-based cultural activities and outings which is why we recommend you bring clothes that are comfortable, weather-appropriate, easy to wash, and do not require special care, such as dry cleaning.

All clients will have access to a laundry machine, so you will only need to pack about a weeks worth of clothing.
