Itinerary 1

Arriving Haines on May 25 in the evening. (no jet boat)

May 25 – Travel Day – At the airport in Juneau transfer to a small (8 person) airplane for the breathtaking flight to Haines over the Juneau ice-field. Arrive in time for a beach campfire and cocktails while dinner al fresco is cooked over the coals.

May 26 – Pack your camping equipment and meet your bush pilot for a remote off strip landing in a specialized airplane on tundra tires. Spend the afternoon assembling river basecamp and gathering wood for the evening campfire.

May 27 – Watch the morning mist rise to unveil the enormous glacier in the distance. Chop wood and carry water in preparation for a hearty riverside breakfast. Suit up for an epic bushwhack to the face of the Le Blondeau Glacier. At the end of the day compare scars and enjoy locally caught salmon and a micro brew around the riverside campfire before bedding down under the stars.

May 28– Rise early for a riverside breakfast and break camp for the 6 hour raft trip back to civilization always on the lookout for bears, moose and bald eagles. Tonight enjoy a real bed and a hot shower.

May 29 – After a quick bite of breakfast and some local coffee it’s off to explore a mountain lake by sea kayak. Watch the fog dissipate as fish jump and mountain goats look down from the towering cliffs above. Observe nesting bald eagles along the shore and perhaps see a bear looking for unsuspecting salmon. As the sun moves higher in the sky transition from kayaking gear to chest waders and meet your fly fishing guide for an afternoon of trout angling. Savor the last night in Alaska with a special traditionally prepared dinner and watch the sun set into the mountains (if you can stay up that late).

May 30 – Time to pack your bags but keep your cameras and binoculars close at hand because you don’t want to miss the abundant sea life while cruising back to Juneau.
