Day 1

After meeting your private guide in Haines, you’ll enjoy learning about this area in Alaska as you hike up to Mt. Riley’s 1,760-foot summit. On the trail, wind your way through the rainforest and open meadows with your naturalist guide sharing highlights with you. Along the way, you may see skunk cabbage, false huckleberry, blueberry, devils club, and other plants and if you’re hiking in the late summer and fall, you may see mushrooms and other fungi.

As you get closer to Mt. Riley’s peak, the trail breaks out into a series of flowery meadows. From the summit’s granite outcrop, panoramic views surround you including the snowcapped Chilkat Mountains to the west, the Coast Range to the east, and the Takshanuk Mountains to the north, leading into Canada. Bring your camera!

The scenery and wildlife photo opportunities were beyond awesome. Alaska Private Touring surpassed the concept of customer satisfaction, with each location notified of our arrival, and the hotels were well chosen and of high caliber. We recommend APT to our friends before even discussing our trip.
