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: Adrian Gurzau
This was a lot of fun. Driving through rugged back country, was exciting and fun. Jeeps were in good condition and the scenery was awesome. The canoe portion was good, not strenuous and a nice snack set up lakeside. Well recommended.

4 StarsA little rough in the JeepAugust 10, 2017

Reviewer: Rich Hansen
Didn't exactly know what we signed up for. The off-roading was really rough - but the remote scenery more than made up for it.

5 StarsSomething for everyone.August 08, 2017

Reviewer: Barbara aTotaram
These off- roading tracks will challenge even the most confident driver, but you can also participate if you are new to jeep driving. The canoe trip across the lake is very calming and scenic and on arrival there was a delicious lunch prepared for us in the middle of nowhere. Following this was an informative bush walk

5 StarsGreat Adventure!August 03, 2017
