Hiking Tours


Alaska Mountain Guides and Chilkat Guides have been guiding hiking trips in Skagway and Haines for over 25 years!  The guides that lead our hiking programs have a wealth of local naturalist knowledge that they are excited to share.  In addition to leading our day trip, many of our guides also lead extended multi-day hiking and mountaineering programs in Alaska and around the world.

We have a series of hiking programs in both Haines and Skagway. Some offer steep ascents to mountain overlooks while others offer a shorter distance option along gentle coastal trails.

Explore some of the many great hiking options that we have in our region of Alaska!
