Backcountry 4x4 Jeep & Canoe Safari Day Excursion

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 Ketchikan tour 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!

Reviewer: Karen Achhamer
This excursion isn't advertised correctly. I assumed that we would be site seeing while driving our jeeps with commentary from the guides. Nope...You are driving up and down mountain sides over jagged rocks deep mud puddles trying desperately to stay on the trail. Everyone can drive if they choose but let me tell you this if you are the driver, as I was you are white knuckled hanging on to your steering wheel for dear life. That being said the canoe trip was lovely the views were spectacular and the guides were Excellent!! I can't say enough about them. I'm giving this an excellent rating because IF you are into jeeping you will love this.

The downside to this was the weather, but our guide Kalen made it fun and tried to keep us from feeling too disheartened. A wonderful young man when it comes to nature and all its bounty, the jeep ride was rough but enjoyable. All in all a great experience.

Reviewer: MC Spangrude
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.

5 StarsAlaska is amazingNovember 17, 2016

Reviewer: Nicole Hansen
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!
