 Skagway

HAINES 'VALLEY OF THE EAGLES' TOUR WITH LUNCH
$133 Per Person

After you cross the fjord from Skagway to Haines by fast ferry, you will board a comfortable bus, and ride along the coastline, where many types of wildlife make their home. By no means think that the ferry is just transporting you because you may have some fabulous sightings along the way. Just the feel of the land rising around the edges of the fjord is exciting.

The next part of your journey will take you through prime bear habitat along the glacial river which, in spring, is lined with wildflowers and berries. In the summer, you might have a great chance to watch the Alaskan brown bear catching lunch in the stream as the salmon run. You will be passing by the home for whales, seals, porpoises, eagles and a menagerie of shore birds.

At the location where the fresh-water lake meets the salty ocean, you can disembark the coach and venture on a refreshing walk through an old growth forest. This is an unstrenuous walk and guided by naturalists who will share their stories of the relationship between the plants and animals.

A buffet-style lunch is served and everyone will find a favorite in its deli selections including sliced roast beef, turkey, several types of cheese slices, chips, big chocolate chip cookies, lemonade, coffee, tea, 2-3 types of bread, lettuce, tomato, onion, and orange wedge. Their bread continues to get rave reviews. The amount of time for lunch is determined by the wildlife sightings, which are highlight of the day.
