Chilkoot Lake Electric Bicycle Tour
Depart from our shop in historic Fort Seward. Cruise past Haines harbor and along the scenic Lutak inlet on our pedal assisted Trek Verve+ 2 or Verve+ 3 E-Bikes. It feels like riding a regular bicycle but quicker and easier! Zoom along the steep sided fjord on a mostly flat paved road. At the terminus we will continue inland along the banks of the Chilkoot River. This is a prime bear spotting area as they feed on the spawning Sockeye Salmon.
We arrive at the emerald tinted Chilkoot Lake, a 3-mile long lake surrounded by glaciated mountain peaks. This is a wonderful way to combine fresh Alaskan air and mild exercise in beautiful Haines, Alaska.
- Enjoy an intimate touring environment with a 1:8 guide to guest ratio.
- Visit Chilkoot State Park, a popular and scenic wildlife viewing area.
- Enjoy the fresh air and mild exercise, pedaling 20 total miles.
