The Glacial Fjord Bicycle Tour will be operating in 2021!
Haines Glacial Fjord Bicycle Tour
We depart town by van and head to our starting point along the Lutak Inlet. As you pedal along the flat, paved road carved into the steep walled fjord, you might spot bald eagles, salmon, whales, sea lions, seals, and even bears. We ride to the end of the inlet where the Chilkoot River joins the ocean and salmon congregate for their ancient quest to reach the spawning grounds.
We continue riding along the river to Chilkoot Lake, a 3-mile long lake surrounded by glaciated mountain peaks. Take in the gorgeous views across the emerald lake, surrounded by glaciers, waterfalls, and jagged 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 1:6 guide to guest ratio.
- Visit Chilkoot State Park, a popular and scenic wildlife viewing area.
- Enjoy the fresh air and mild exercise, pedaling 9-10 total miles.
