This scenic Ketchikan shore excursion combines three different nature experiences into one convenient package. Fill your senses with adventure and excitement as you take control of a 4-wheel drive Jeep Wrangler and navigate your way through the rugged backroads of Revillagigedo Island. Then, grab a paddle and make some friends aboard a 37-foot, 20-passenger Alaskan-style canoe, drifting across a gorgeous mountain lake.
For the Jeep portion of this Ketchikan excursion, you'll be paired into groups of four and depart on your adventure into the mountainous roads of the Tongass National Forest. The scenic route takes you through lush rainforest, up mountain roads to breathtaking scenery and vantage points. Your professional guide provides interesting and informative commentary along your drive through two-way radio.
Learn about the timber industry's reforestation methods while you stop for fantastic views and photo opportunities. If other guests would like to drive the vehicle, several stops are available along the route to change drivers. Conclude your drive by arriving at the stunning Lake Harriet Hunt. A unique ecosystem awaits, which you can enjoy from the vantage point of a large, easy to paddle guided canoe. Keep an eye out for the sundew, a rare carniverous plant. On the other side of the lake, your expert safari guide leads a nature hike through an old-growth forest. A camp is located nearby with Alaskan snacks to refuel you. A short narrated transfer brings you back to base camp and Ketchikan.
Book this incredible Ketchikan shore excursion for a memorable day in the Alaskan outdoors. Awe-inspiring scenery and activities await!
Real nice time with the very knowledgeable guides led to a nice and enjoyable time.

Even though I missed the bus, and was quite upset, the staff connected me to the tour in time and I enjoyed it immensely. I am disabled and was given a great deal of help entering/exiting the canoe. The experience of driving the bad ass road in a Jeep and canoeing across a lake with an amazing echo point was wonderful. Made my whole cruise memorable.

The only way to enjoy Alaska is to get out and fully experience it! What better way than canoeing, hiking, and back country 4 wheel driving! My family of 8 had a great time!

This was my favorite excursion of all times!!! Anna was our guide and was very knowledgable of the area and provided lots of great information. We had never canoed before and she made it an enjoyable experience! Then the jeep tour was so much fun!! She has a bubbly outgoing personality and made sure everyone in the group had a good time. I would definitely recommend this trip!

This excursion was a great one with a jeep ride which took us back country and good weather for a canoe trip across a lake. We have wonderful pics of both escapes
