The Sealaska Inn hotel is nestled in the pristine Coast Mountains in Alaska on the US and Canadian borders where Orca whales, seals and otters play at our doorstep.

Hyder, Alaska is located at the head of the Portland Canal in southeast Alaska and is the most southerly place in Alaska. Hyder is just 2 miles from Stewart, British Columbia and 75 air miles from Ketchikan, Alaska. Hyder, Alaska lies on the boundary of the Tongass National Forest and the Misty Fjords National Monument.
This ghost town itself is a quaint step back into time. The roads are not paved, the horses run wild, the dogs bark and the children laugh and play. Bears wander through the streets, without causing too much trouble! Hyder was originally called the Portland City and the name was changed in 1914 after Frederick Hyder, a Canadian mining engineer.
Hyder is known as the "Friendliest Ghost Town in Alaska" and as the "Grizzly bear capital of southeast Alaska". Hyder's economy is based primarily on tourism today. Spawning chum salmon return to Fish Creek in Hyder, Alaska in late July and August, attracting grizzlies, black bear and bald eagles. Viewing platforms afford a unique vantage for awesome natural spectacle.
"I have been in the Sealaska a number of times, the owners are great people to make friends with. There's always a happy crowd there, they make you feel welcome."
"We were considering camping and when we walked into their pub we felt like we had found a base in Hyder. Everyone there was warm and friendly and we took both lunch and dinner there.....both were good. We took rooms at this Inn and they were very clean and we were very comfortable. I consider it one of the real travel bargains of my 3 month odyssey across the US and Canada."
