Getting to Haines, AK

The best way to travel to Haines is to take a major airline (like Alaska Airlines) to Juneau, AK, then to take a puddle jumper (www.flyalaskaseaplanes.com) to Haines. Travel can be tricky to arrange, but with a little bit of searching, you can usually find a flight that will match the puddle jumper schedule so that you don’t have to stay overnight in Juneau. A roundtrip ticket from anywhere in the US to Juneau typically runs $700-$1,000.
