“Enjoy the kiss of Haines!” That’s what a friend told me when she found out I was in the area. We knew we were surrounded by magic as soon as we looked out from the windows of National Geographic Sea Lion and saw the peaks of the Chilkat Range towering over the town. Following that first glimpse, we immersed ourselves in what the area had to offer. We enjoyed activities ranging from a rafting trip down the Klukwan River, a biking adventure to Chilkoot Lake, and flightseeing tours over the Chilkat Range, Lynn Canal, the Meade Glacier, and Glacier Bay.
