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 around the inlet.
