Haines, Alaska

Haines, Alaska

Haines is a small town located on the upper Lynn Canal where the Chilkat River emptys into the Lynn Canal. Haines is home to the largest sanctuary for bald eagles, the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. As the Chilkat River is host to a very late run of Chum salmon, the Eagles gather here by the thousands to enjoy the feast.

Haines is a photographer's paradise with jaw dropping scenery, birds, wildlife, and meadows full of flowers in the lush forests, on the ocean shores, or along the banks of the rivers.

While in Haines, explore the cultural heritage at Sheldon Museum, and at Alaska Indian Arts in historic Fort Seward. Browse Haines' galleries for exquisite artistry of the Chilkoot and Chilkat Tlingits and other resident artists. Go shopping in our numerous unique galleries - Haines is an Artists' haven. Explore the area with a tour, take in a performance of the Chilkat Dancers Storytelling Theatre.

Transport Links - Haines is connected to the North American highway system by the Haines Highway, making it much more accessible than most other Southeastern communities of its size. The primary mode of inter-Southeastern transportation is by the Alaska Marine Highway. The Lynn Canal route of the ferry system (Juneau-Haines-Skagway) receives a large amount of ferry traffic, especially in the summer.
However, the Haines Airport also receives a large amount of traffic as well with three bush carriers serving it with services to Gustavus, Skagway, and Juneau.
