Explore the Chilkat Valley by catamaran, 12-passenger van, and Alaskan bush plane.

Our wonderful guide designed this tour for our travelers who want the ultimate Alaskan experience. Each of the three modes of transportation is exciting in itself and the combination of the three will give you goosebumps.

Leave the crowds of Skagway behind on this unique combo excursion. This tour uses three modes of travel--catamaran, 12-passenger van, and Alaskan bush plane--to explore Alaska's best glaciers, scenery, and wildlife.

The trip begins with a 45-minute catamaran cruise along the steep-walled fjord connecting Skagway to Haines. More than a dozen unnamed waterfalls drop hundreds of feet from the cliffs on both sides of the boat. You'll learn about the indigenous Tlingit culture, marvel at the scenery, and look for humpback whales, harbor seals, and a variety of seabirds.

Upon arrival in Haines, you'll meet your expert guide and enjoy a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park. This gorgeous park has it all--a turquoise lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains, important Tlingit cultural sites, and a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea. Keep an eye out for wildlife. Bald eagles, harbor seals, and brown bears are often seen here. Your guide will choose a scenic spot for a boxed lunch.

Next, board one of Alaska's famous bush planes for a 50-minute glacier tour. Soar past the Rainbow Glacier, a hanging glacier with an immense waterfall pouring from its face. Continue to the Davidson Glacier for a look down upon the Davidson Icefall, crisscrossed with crevasses and ice towers. This is a great opportunity to look for mountain goats as you glide over a sea of ice on your way back to Skagway, where you will be returned to the cruise ship pier or your hotel.
