Plan Your Visit
Visiting Haines will take some planning but once you get here you will be happy you did. First step is to plan where to sleep and how long. Haines makes a great home base while you explore the vibrant communities in the Inside Passage which is Southeast, Alaska. Start planning your activities by familiarizing yourself with the area and modes of transportation to get around. The southeast area is a very unique part of Alaska, most towns are roadless in this area except for Haines, Skagway and Hyder so plan on taking a plane or ferry to access most of the Inside Passage.
Once you are ready to explore the rest of Alaska all you do is drive north on the Haines Highway which takes you through Canada, make sure to have your passport. Alaska is covered by pristine wilderness, mountain vistas, boreal forests, wild rivers, and crystal clear lakes, so take it all in and plan to return because you may have to visit more than once to see it all.
