Sitting on the shores of Alaska's longest fjord and surrounded by mountains, the port city of Haines boasts spectacular scenery. Home to about 2,500 people and frequented by far fewer cruise ships than much of southeastern Alaska, visitors and locals savor Haines' sense of calm. Its main thoroughfare contains a number of independent stores and restaurants where you can chat with the locals over a beer or pick up some souvenirs. The town serves as a great jumping-off point for exploring the outdoors: add some hiking, kayaking, or wildlife spotting to your itinerary. Our United States travel itinerary planner allows you to plan your trip to Haines and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Haines

Haines supports a few hotels and motels, most of which sit near the waterfront. Bed and breakfasts are more plentiful in the area, and many boast superb views and provide a real taste of Alaska. Renting a more rural cabin or staying at a campsite or RV park is a good way to take advantage of Haines' beautiful natural surroundings.
