Haines, often called “The Adventure Capital of Alaska” truly deserves this attribute. It is part of the Alaska we all dream about: Real, authentic and unashamed.

Haines, Alaska is like no other destination. It offers a contrast of sheer unimaginable beauty right at its doorsteps: Deep blue, clear ocean water full of marine mammals and secluded bays and beaches surrounded by majestic mountains and blue-iced glaciers.

With fascinating history, intriguing culture, breathtaking scenery and adventure to last for a lifetime, there is no question that the time you spend when visiting Haines will be enjoyed and remembered for years to come.

Haines boasts year-round fun for the entire family on the edge of North America’s longest and deepest fjord, just 68 nautical miles north of Juneau in Southeast Alaska. Craggy mountain peaks tower above a lush coastal rainforest with temperate seasons that call to the adventurer in all of us.

Fill the long daylight hours of summer with a sightseeing cruise, a deep sea halibut fishing charter, or a hike through an ancient spruce forest. Visit museums dedicated to the earliest residents, the Native Tlingit people, and a national favourite, the American Bald Eagle. And if you are still up for more, explore gold rush era Fort William H.Seward, or find yourself alone at the end of a rocky beach trail. It’s all right here!
