Haines, Alaska

Aug 14, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


After sailing north in Stephens Passage and then Lynn Canal, we reached the town of Haines, Alaska. The offered activities were numerous: float trips down the Chilkat River, bicycling up to Chilkoot Lake, flightseeing over Glacier Bay National Park, or a good hike up to Mount Riley. The town of Haines offered many options as well, from walking about the historic Fort Seward grounds to visiting the local distillery or even a museum. It was a beautiful, breezy yet sunny day in Haines to enjoy whatever tickled your fancy.
