Haines

Jul 17, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Bird


Sitting at the head of Lynn Canal is the quintessential town of Haines, Alaska. With a year-round population of about 2,300, it has a well-earned reputation as the outdoor recreation capital of Southeast Alaska. We took full advantage of the plethora of activities available to us here today. Options included flightseeing, rafting the Chilkat River, a canoe safari on the Chilkoot River and Lake, biking, two different hikes and fly fishing. Dinner included a crab feast with all you can eat Dungeness crab, barbecued ribs, plenty of side dishes and a delicious dessert.
