Travel the Haines Highway to the alpine tundra area of Haines Summit in Yukon, Canada. Along the way, you'll drive through Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve's dramatic scenery and enjoy tales of local history and culture.
The Haines Highway -- a National Scenic Byway -- has functioned as a Chilkat Native trail, a packhorse route and a military access road. Travel the very same route through Fort Seward to the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, a 48,000-acre wildlife refuge that's home to the world's largest concentration of bald eagles.
Take photos from a scenic viewpoint before you cross the Canadian border to follow the gold stampeders' route used by some of Alaska's early settlers and enjoy views over the expanse of tundra.
You'll pause for a delicious picnic-style lunch before heading back to Haines.
