Beautiful hike over a few days of awesome fjords, cool bird life and beautiful water. Hint: If you don't want to carry your own pack the whole way, there's a water taxi service that will pick up your stuff each morning at different docks, dropping it off at your next destination. I didn't know this when I went, and it could have been a fun way of hiking the trail. Also, hitchhiking at the end of the line, back to civilization, was a little challenging but not too bad if you don't mind chatting people up a bit. I ended up getting a little bed and breakfast for cheaper than expected, and relaxing for a couple of glorious nights at the end!★ ★ ★ ★ ★
