TRIP DESCRIPTION

This is a wonderful combination of kayaking and bicycling in the Alaskan outdoors. You begin the tour in Haines in the historical Fort Seward. Your bicycle guide fits you to a bike to ride along the flat road of the steep-walled fjord to the mouth of the Chilkoot River. You then bike along the river through Chilkoot State Park to the edge of a glacier-fed lake.

Along the route you make stops to view eagles and other wildlife, with possible sightings of brown bears feeding on salmon. At the lake, you exchange your bicycle for a sea kayak. Your guide outfits you with gear and gives you a paddling orientation. You then silently glide along the shores of the emerald lake. Our van returns you to Haines.
