Chilkoot Wilderness and Wildlife Viewing Tour

Leave the crowds of Skagway behind and visit Chilkoot Lake State Park in Haines. Your Skagway tour begins with a high-speed catamaran ride along the steep-walled fjords which connect Skagway to Haines. Over a dozen unnamed waterfalls drop hundreds of feet from both sides of the boat. Upon arrival in Haines, you will meet your expert naturalist guide for a drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park.

This park has it all: a turquoise lake surrounded by snowy mountain peaks, a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea, and important Tlingit cultural sights. As you drive through the park, your guide knows the best places to stop for scenery and the possibility of wildlife spotting. Your guide is equipped with a powerful spotting scope to bring the wildlife in close, and your guide will explain how the animals fit into the Chilkoot's complex ecosystem. Make sure you bring your camera to take advantage of the numerous photo opportunities.

Please Note: Depending on the ferry schedule between Haines and Skagway, you may also have some extra time to explore the quaint downtown area of Haines. Round-trip fast ferry cost is included in the price of all departures of this tour. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed.
