Description

Outside magazine placed Haines in the Top Ten places to live, and when you arrive in the Chilkat Valley, you’ll understand why. At the upper-most end of the longest, deepest fjord in North America, this coastal gem has it all: glacier-studded peaks along a magnificent river valley open to the warm summer sun and a blue-green ocean vista. The area is home to the largest gathering of Bald Eagles in the world, and opportunities to view wildlife abound.

We’ll be practicing yoga in a beautiful yurt in the heart of this wilderness and dining for lunch and dinner in a beautiful timber-framed Lodge with views of the expansive Chilkat Mountain Range. Our retreat center is in one of the most treasured locations in the region, snugly nestled along-side the Chilkat inlet. The center is only an 8 minute drive from town where you’ll find hotels, restaurants, markets, cafes and art galleries. There will be plenty of time for hiking and exploring the natural wonder of the area. We recommend arriving a few days early and/or staying a few days after. We'll have recommended outings for you before you arrive. 

Participants make their own arrangements for travel and accommodations.
