Wild Alaska Escape: Haines, the Inian Islands & Tracy Arm Fjord on National Geographic Sea Lion

Lindblad NG Sea Lion

Wild Alaska Escape: Sitka to Juneau

Explore Alaska on an active, exciting expedition to see the region’s iconic wildlife and epic landscapes in the compact timeframe of one work week. Take long hikes on world-class trails through forests of towering trees, kayak long routes deep into glacially carved fjords, and raft to an ancient Alaska native village—all with our nimble expedition ship as your moving basecamp. This expedition will enable you to:

  • Paddle on long, naturalist-guided kayaking journeys into Alaska’s dramatic bays
  • Raft the Chilkat River with local guides and call at the ancient Chilkat Tlingit village of Klukwan
  • Explore Haines, the 'adventure capital of Alaska,' via raft, bicycle, or hiking boot
  • Zip around incredible icebergs and view glaciers in Tracy or Endicott Arm

Enjoy our most active Alaska expedition

Expect long point-to-point kayak outings where our ship drops off our groups and then repositions to pick us up after time spent exploring quiet bays and coastlines of towering ancient trees. Hike rocky trails high into the mountains for incredible views. And venture deep into the forest along rugged trails and salmon streams to explore new ecosystems.

Encounter legendary wildlife

See humpback whales, brown bears, and bald eagles—the iconic wildlife of Southeast Alaska. Search for killer whales in the wildlife-rich channels between islands and sure-footed mountain goats in steep fjords.

Explore the 'Adventure Capital of Alaska'

Call in at the small town of Haines, Alaska and choose to take a bicycle ride around a glacial lake or raft to the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, where the highest concentration of bald eagles in the world thrive. Be sure to stop in at local stores or, in the evening, at one of the town's bars to hoist a few pints of local craft ale and mix with locals.

Travel in excellent company

Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, five veteran naturalists, including a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, plus a wellness specialist--the largest and most knowledgeable expedition team in Alaska. Their knowledge and passion for Alaska is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
