WELCOME TO THE ADVENTURE CAPITAL OF ALASKA

Once a location for Russian fur traders and the site of the Dalton Toll during the Klondike Rush, Haines has long been a traditional stopping place for those on their way to Alaska’s interior or to Canada’s Yukon.

With its rugged mountain vistas and seascapes, Haines offers plenty of adventure for outdoor enthusiasts. Hiking, biking, and kayaking are just a few ways you can explore this glacial paradise. For the ultimate experience, grab a snow machine, boat tour, seaplane, or even try heli-skiing and bring your inner adventurer even closer to Haines’s rugged landscape. Also known as the “Valley of the Eagles,” Haines is a birder’s paradise. With nearly 400 bald eagles calling the region home and 260 different species of birds visiting the Chilkat Valley at any given time, you can rest assured you’ve never seen variety like this in the wild.

History buffs will want to visit the iconic white buildings of the historical Fort William H. Seward Base, the first permanent post in Alaska. The base’s decommissioned buildings have since been repurposed into an interesting collection of restaurants, accommodations, shops, and art galleries. Small town charm with big city amenities. Be sure to visit local watering holes like the Port Chilkoot Distillery and Haines Brewing Company to experience Haines like the locals.
