Klehini Pack Raft

Klehini Pack Raft

The day begins with a 45 minute van ride along the meandering Chilkat River, past the confluences with the Kicking Horse and Tsirku Rivers.  We skirt the village of  Klukwan, a Tlinjkit settlement located on the same ground for thousands of years, eventually reaching the mouth of Porcupine Creek and the start of our paddle on the Klehini River. We can choose to paddle the upper section of the Klehini for a half day adventure or all the way to 20 Mile on the Haines Highway for a full day adventure.  Either way we will let the current take us through unbridled wilderness as we follow the path down the Klehini. Along the way we may see some of the plentiful wildlife that lives along the banks such as brown or black bear, wolves, coyotes or moose grazing on alder along side the river.  Surely we will see bald eagles, plentiful throughout the valley.

Day Hiking Trips

The area around Haines is teeming with both on and off-trail hiking opportunities. Whether you are looking for a coastal trail hike over rolling terrain, weaving in and out of the forest and onto the beaches of the Chilkat Peninsula, or a trip that will take you into the backcountry and true Alaskan wilderness, you will find it in Haines.  Maybe you are looking to gain some elevation and and experience truly unique views of the fjord around Haines. Our day trips up Mt. Ripinsky and Mt. Riley are great options whose summits will offer unparalleled views of the fjord and the town of Haines, and on a clear day may let you get a peek of Mt. Fairweather nearly 80 miles away. If you are looking for a little less strenuous hike, the trails on Battery Point or Seduction Point offer rolling terrain along the coast with great opportunities to see marine mammals and experience our temperate rainforest environment.
