The pristine beauty of Haines and the Chilkat Valley have served as an inspiration for Native craftsman and artists through the centuries. We will visit three different art galleries and call on a variety of local artists as explore this quaint and unspoiled community.

First, enjoy a brief tour of downtown Haines and then head out of town with a scenic drive along the Chilkat River. We make a photo stop at the historic Letnikof Cove Cannery with the Rainbow Glacier and Chilkat Mountains as a backdrop.

At the small artists enclave of "Mud Bay" we will meet a few
of the eccentric local artists who consider the Haines townsite of 1500 inhabitants too crowded for their tastes. Continue with a tour of Historic Fort William H. Seward, first Army base in Alaska. The former Army hospital has been transformed into Alaska Indian Arts, a local non-profit arts centre where Native totem poles, masks, and jewelry are created.

There will be time for shopping at all three stops.
