We travel aboard comfortable, enclosed, power boats . Daily distances between anchorage’s are not great to allow you abundant time to walk the shoreline and forest, soak in hotsprings, observe the marine and wildlife and visit abandoned Haida village sites with their standing totems and longhouse remains. At night we camp ashore in some of the most spectacular and secluded sites in the world. Long days of sunlight, campfires on the beach, sleeping in the silence and comfort of truly pristine forests. In the company of our guide-interpreters you will experience a rich and diverse educational experience as well as an incredible seagoing adventure.
B1, Totems at Skedans Village (1 Day)
This all day trip by ferry, bus, logging road and boat takes you to the abandoned village site of Skedans. Here was Koona, a south-facing winter village which, in the 1830’s harbored 27 houses, 56 carved monuments and 471 people. Today our Haida Watchman guide leads us through another world. Cracked and bleached faces stare sternly from tilting poles. On the ground, faces stare skyward, fallen and moss covered but still emanating strength and beauty.
