 Welcome!
As the “Adventure Capital of Alaska” Haines offers every visitor a way to determine their own definition of wild. In Haines you will find a perfect sample of Alaska’s history, scenic beauty, arts, culture, wildlife and lifestyle.
The Haines Borough, with more than 2,725 square miles, is home to 2,400 year round residents. Haines is uniquely
situated at the convergence of the largest World Heritage Site in North America. Kluane/Wrangell-St. Elias/Glacier Bay/ Tatshenshini-Alsek national parks surround Haines, an area encompassing close to 25 million acres and nearly 5 times the size of Yellowstone National Park. According to the World Heritage Center, the area has the largest non polar ice field in the world. Of SE Alaska communities, only in Haines can you go from sea level to alpine tundra terrain in less than 100 miles!

Such diversity has cemented Haines as a premiere site for visitors. Our earliest residents of the Chilkat Valley, the Tlingit people, considered this area to be the capital of their expansive region.
Due to its beautiful surroundings; Haines is a favored location for filmmakers. “White Fang”, “Gold Rush”, “Dr. Oakley: Yukon Vet” and numerous adventure videos have been filmed here.
Haines’ location also makes it a natural hub for flights to Glacier Bay National Park and travel to other Southeast Alaska communities. Haines is one
of the few communities in Southeast Alaska connected to both a highway system and a seaport.
For a day, a week, winter or summer, whatever your interest is in Alaska, you will find it in Haines.
