Take in the views on a 50-minute ride aboard a catamaran fast ferry that brings you to Haines where you'll embark on a thrilling nature adventure from the seat of an UTV (utility task vehicle). This exhilarating full-day excursion takes you deep into the natural beauty of Alaska's wilderness. While you drive caravan-style, you'll not only take in your breathtaking surroundings; you'll also learn about the vegetation and wildlife from your naturalist guide. Begin at the dock in Haines, and enjoy a motorcoach ride along the National Scenic Byway to the UTV staging area. Participate in a safety briefing, then set off on a 15-mile ride to explore the wilds of Alaska. Keep an eye out for eagles, bears and moose and, in the sparkling waters, swans and salmon. Your route takes you across Little Salmon Creek and ascends a series of viewpoints overlooking the Klehini, Tsirku and Chilkat River Valleys. Tuck into a picnic lunch, then return via the ferry to Skagway.
