Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

The journey begins with a scenic 45-minute cruise aboard a high-speed catamaran along North America's longest and deepest fjord to Haines. Enjoy spectacular views of waterfalls and ice-sculpted peaks as your guide provides informative commentary and points out marine wildlife.

A short transfer brings you to the Takshanuk ("land of falling waters") trailhead. Learn how to operate your automatic-transmission, four-wheel-drive vehicle. The mules are equipped with seat belts and are designed to be easy to handle. Hop aboard your 4x4 and experience the thrill of being in the breathtaking wilderness. We'll ride for 15 minutes and stop at our lodge where you can enjoy a snack of cookies paired with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate before resuming your drive.

Cascading waterfalls and crystal-clear creeks are just some of the natural beauty to greet you on your way to meadows at the 1,500-foot elevation. Spectacular views of mountains and forests abound, including a panoramic look at the Lynn Canal and Chilkoot Lake - awesome photo opportunities!

On the way down, we'll stop again at the lodge with a warm fire and amazing views for a one-hour lunch. Enjoy a delicious meal of halibut and BBQ chicken, potatoes, fruit salad, coleslaw and cookies. After descending the rest of the trail, board a motor coach and enjoy a vista-filled ride 45 minutes along the Lutak Inlet en route to Skagway.
