Day 7 - Juneau
For a state capital, Juneau maintains a surprising small-town charm, in part because it can only be reached by sea or air due to the surrounding wilderness. Collections from the indigenous people are displayed in the Alaska State Museum. Visit Mendenhall Glacier for outdoor adventure.
Day 8 - Haines
Nestled along America's longest fjord - the gorgeous Lynn Canal - Haines was first settled by Tlingit Indians. Totem poles are sprinkled about town, and fascinating artifacts from the Tlingits and the early pioneers are displayed in the Sheldon Museum. But nature is Haines' chief draw. Brown bears, moose and bald eagles are plentiful.
Day 9 - Hubbard Glacier
Cruise the majestic Hubbard Glacier.
Day 10 - Icy Straight Point
Hoonah means "where the north wind doesn't blow" in the language of the Tlingit Indians, who make up about 70% of the population of this village on the lee side of Chichagof Island. However, wildlife outnumbers everyone, so watch for bears, eagles and humpback whales, which migrate here in the summer.
Day 11 - Sitka
Called "Shee Atika" by the Tlingit Indians, then "New Archangel" by the Russians who ousted them, Sitka boasts a multicultural heritage. Two dozen of its attractions are on the National Register of Historic Places, including Castle Hill and Building 29, a structure built by the Russians in 1835. The Sheldon Jackson Museum exhibits one of Alaska's oldest native culture collections.
