Break away from the crowds of Skagway and visit a true naturalist’s paradise – Haines, Alaska on this 6.5-hour adventure. Your tour begins as you board your private Alaskan bush plane on this 50-minute guided flight. Take to the skies and experience the grandeur of Glacier Bay National Park. Soar past the face of the Rainbow Glacier, a hanging glacier with an immense waterfall pouring from its face. Continue to the Davidson Glacier to look down upon the Davidson Icefall, crisscrossed with crevasses and ice towers. Cross over the Chilkat Mountains and explore the East Arm of Glacier Bay, including the McBride and Muir Glaciers. Discover the textures, colors, and light that make Glacier Bay one of Alaska’s premier attractions. Keep an eye out for mountain goats as you glide over a sea of ice on your way to Haines. Upon arrival in Haines, take a seaside drive to Chilkoot Lake State Park, which boasts a turquoise lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains, important Tlingit cultural sites, and a salmon-filled river flowing into the sea. Depending on the season, watch for migratory birds, brown bears, harbor seals, bald eagles, and wildflowers.Your tour is topped off with a final stop at the Pilot Light Restaurant, where owner, Cambria Goodwin, featured on “Cupcake Wars”, serves a tasty meal featuring her signature salmon bisque soup, Caesar salad, home-baked bread, and of course, dessert. After this delicious meal return to Skagway via shared fast ferry.
