The Alaska we all dream about: real, rugged, and authentic. Haines, Alaska, population of 2400, is located along the edge of North America's longest and deepest fjord, just 15 miles south of Skagway and 75 miles north of Juneau. Haines is like no other destination, with fascinating history, intriguing culture, breathtaking scenery and adventure to last a lifetime. Craggy mountain peaks tower above a lush coastal rainforest that call to the adventurer in all of us. Fill the long daylight hours of summer with a kayaking excursion, rafting trip, a deep-sea halibut fishing charter, bear viewing, a stroll along the picturesque waterfront or a hike through an ancient spruce forest. Visit museums dedicated to our earliest residents, the Native Tlingit people, and a national favorite, the American Bald Eagle, explore gold rush era Fort William H. Seward, or find yourself alone at the end of a rocky beach trail.
Highlights of the Fjord Express to Haines
Depart Juneau in the afternoon and head north through Lynn Canal, the continent’s longest and deepest glacial fjord. Lynn Canal stretches over 100 miles long and is over 2000 feet deep. We will see many hanging glaciers high on the mountainside and cascading waterfalls on our route.
A favorite stop on our evening cruise, the picturesque and historic octagonal lighthouse was first lit in 1906.
The Fjord Express fast ferry from Juneau to Haines is a great way to see Alaska's wildlife. Marine life abounds in these waters, and a fully-narrated wildlife and whale watching cruise will highlight the voyage. You’ll see hanging glaciers, nesting bald eagles, harbor seals, stellar sealions, porpoise and humpback or killer whales. .
