Chilkat River

About 80 kilometers (50 miles) long, the Chilkat River is known for being a birdwatcher’s paradise. The river is home to the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve where bald eagles flock to the riverbanks to feast on the salmon here. See bears, moose and eagles from the road that runs alongside the river or observe them while rafting down the river. The Chilkat River flows south into the Chilkat Inlet and eventually into Lynn Canal, one of the deepest and longest fjords in the world.
