Day 4
Skagway & Haines

Much of charming downtown Skagway is a designated National Historic District showcasing stories of adventure and hardship from the Klondike Gold Rush. The town is also surrounded by abundant natural beauty best explored by guided hike, kayak, high-speed boat, or vintage train tour. In the evening stop in at Haines.

Day 5
Icy Strait

Long an important Tlingit fishing and hunting ground, Icy Strait Point's abundant wildlife makes this port call unique. Cruise passengers can explore the coast closer via small boat or zodiac, or venture inland by ATV or jeep.
