 SOUTHEAST ALASKA
 Haines The Adventure Capital of Alaska
Haines is a popular stop for RVers traveling between the Yukon and Alaska, With it’s combination of history, culture, scenery and adventure, there’s something for everyone.
Located at the northern end of Southeast Alaska, Haines sits on the shores of the northern Lynn Canal, the deepest, longest fjord in North America. Haines is surrounded by mountains and glaciers. Fishing, rafting, kayaking, boating and guided nature walks are just some of the activities available.
Haines retains the character and charm of small-town Alaska while still hosting a range of interesting museums (including the Hammer Museum, dedicated to preserving the history of man’s first tool) and a thriving arts community. You can see
demonstrations by native carvers and artists at Alaska Indian Arts, a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and continuation of traditional native craft and culture.
Getting to Haines is an adventure in itself. Haines is one of the few communities in Southeast Alaska connected to both a highway system and a seaport. The Haines Highway is one of the prettiest stretches of highway in the US that parallels some of the most pristine water and wildlife habitats with high peaks, glaciers, rivers and lakes along the entire route. In 2009 the 40-mile stretch from Haines to the Canadian border was designated a National Scenic Byway.
