Hiking and Backpacking

Day Hikes

Backpacking Trips

The area around Haines is rich in 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 or around 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 on a clear day may let you get a peak of Mt. Fairweather nearly 80 miles away.

Dates: Daily departures from May 1-September 31.

Rates: $148 half day per person $198 full day per person

Glacier Bay Backpacking

Alaska’s Lost Coast

The land of ice and mist, Alaska’s Lost Coast is beyond comprehension in terms of scale, but must be seen to truly get a feel for its rugged beauty. There are hundreds of miles of remote coast comprised of endless beaches, coastal temperate rain forest and ice plummeting from glaciers to the sea.  Be one of the few people to visit the Lost Coast of Alaska. (we won’t let you get lost).

Chilkoot Trail

Join us for a trip through time set in a vast wilderness where the rugged landscape remains as luring today as it did when the Gold Stampeders first braved their way to the gold fields of the Yukon Territory in the late 1890s. You will retrace the steps of thousands of gold seekers on this five day/four night adventure that is truly one of the classic backpacking trips anywhere in the world.  This trip will take you from the temperate rain forest of Alaska up over the famed Chilkoot Pass and along the trail that leads to the headwaters of the Yukon River in Canada’s Yukon Territory.  You will camp in the iconic Canyon City, Sheep Camp, Happy Camp and Lindeman City campgrounds, each of which has their own rich history and incredible views.
