I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Chilkook Trail Hike and Float which I booked through Holland America Line. It was the highlight of my Alaskan adventure. I just couldn't stop talking about it afterwards! Our guide Ken was fantastic. Thank you for this wonderful experience.

We were told by our Cruise Ship adviser that this was a terrific excursion, and boy was it ever. You take a great hike, full of history and nature. Our tour guide, Zach, was knowledgeable and helpful, and he really knew his plant life and explained in detail how the forest in Alaska worked. It was one of our favorite trips off the ship. The scenery is spectacular. Everyone who took the hike talked of how they would do it again, which is a good sign in Alaska. It was my first trip to Alaska, and the beauty is mind-blowing.

Absolutely beautiful hike on the Chilkoot Trail. Our guide Josh was friendly and knowledgeable. The trail was challenging in parts but well maintained and walking sticks were provided to help manage the tricky parts. The scenery was breathtaking. The float down the river was the perfect way to finish off a great excursion.
