Enjoy a scenic bike ride along an ocean estuary to salmon spawning grounds in a glacial lake!
A narrated twenty minute van ride takes you to the shore of Lutak Inlet where you begin riding your comfortable hybrid bike. You cruise along the flat paved road carved into the steep-walled fjord. As you pedal along you might spot bald eagles, salmon, whales, sea lions, seals, and even bears. Your journey takes you to the end of the inlet where the Chilkoot River joins the ocean and salmon congregate for their ancient quest to reach the spawning grounds.
You ride along the river to Chilkoot Lake, the spawning ground for the Sockeye Salmon. Take in the gorgeous views across the emerald lake, surrounded by glaciers, waterfalls, and jagged mountain peaks. This is a wonderful way to combine fresh Alaskan air and mild exercise in beautiful Haines, Alaska. You return by bike to the van and your transfer back to Fort Seward.
