Itinerary

You spend two nights in Haines and ride moderate self-guided bike trips of your choice each day. We provide you with a Specialized Sirrus touring bike, a map and local information. You can explore Chilkat State Park by bicycle and take in the sights of Letnikof Cannery and Rainbow Glacier. You can also bike to Chilkoot State Park to enjoy wildlife viewing and the emerald water of glacial-fed Chilkoot Lake.

The second day you can ride out of town on the Haines Road through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve to the distance of your choice. We then pick you up in the van for the transfer back to town.

On the morning of the third day you take the thirty-five minute fast ferry to Skagway. After settling in at a local B&B you take in the sights of the historic gold rush town. You then take the mid-day departure of the White Pass and Yukon Railroad to Fraser Station in Canada and bike 21 miles back to Skagway, descending the 3292' pass over 15 miles.

On your second day in Skagway you may choose to bike to Dyea on the edge of the rainforest and explore the Chilkoot Trail, the historic gold rush era townsite and nearby tidal flats. The next morning you return to Haines aboard the fast ferry then continue on your Alaskan journey. You may choose to extend your stay in Haines or travel to nearby Glacier Bay or Juneau.
