We took a float plane trip with Carlin Air over the Misty Fjords area. Pilot Jeff was informative and friendly and I got to ride in the co-pilot's seat and that was incredible. We saw lots of beatiful waterfalls, thick forests and rugged mountains.
We went whale watching with Captain Jayleen from Harv and Marv's Outback Alaska onboard the OB1. We saw humpback whales right next to the boat, and sea lions and eagles. On the way back into town our driver stopped at the Mendenhall Glacier for 15 min so we could take pictures. It was incredible.
We rode the White Pass and Yukon Route Train up to the U.S. - Canada border. It was interesting to see the scenery change as we went higher in the mountains. Be aware that you can not change cars during the trip and there are diesel fumes in the first car. The engines move from front to the back for the return trip.
