Add to Itinerary

Escape the crowds of Skagway! The trip begins with a 45-minute ride via a 100-passenger shuttle catamaran along the steep-walled fjords, which connect Skagway to Haines. Arrive in Haines, and meet your professional photography guide.

On this private tour, the focus will be on photographing the stunning scenery of the Chilkat Valley. Cradled at the base of the Chilkat Peninsula, flanked by the Lynn Fjord and Chilkat River, Haines is filled with natural wonders. Your expert photographer guide will assist you in capturing the best of the Chilkat Valley's unique attractions.

Your guide will select his favorite locations and provide you with ample time to set up the best shots. Depending on the lighting and weather, different locations in the Chilkat Valley boast specific photographic highlights.

Your professional photographer guide will have previously scouted out the best areas for the day's photo shoot. May, June, and July feature wildflowers and eagles. Beginning in August, pink salmon, the smallest and most abundant of the Pacific salmon varieties, begin their run up the Chilkoot River to spawn. This is the best opportunity to see brown bear as they are often witnessed feeding along the banks of the river. When bears are present, every effort will be made to give you safe bear viewing and photography.

The theme is flexibility, fun and learning rather than adherence to a rigid schedule. Even a simple point and shoot camera will work, but by all means, bring all your favorite photo gear. The tour includes a boxed lunch so that you can eat when you want to and focus on getting the shots that you desire. You’ll return to Skagway via shuttle catamaran.
