Sit back, strap yourself in, and hit the accelerator for the off-road adventure Kart Expedition of a lifetime! Mountain trails through a timber harvested area offer the perfect venue for off-road challenges. Learn about the history, culture and economy of Ketchikan as you are transported by motor coach to this rainforest wilderness. Experience the rugged Alaskan wilderness from the driver's seat of a specially designed off-road adventure kart on this Ketchikan port trip.
At the Adventure Kart base camp, you will receive a safety briefing and gear up in preparation for the exciting, one-and-a-half-hour guided trek. Your caravan of karts sets out to explore the remote backcountry along several miles of improved forest trail, with your guide in the lead ATV. Feel the rush of adrenaline at the start of your journey as you navigate an obstacle course in a custom designed Tomcar that tests your ability to traverse through the remaining wilderness. A comfortable pace is maintained as you thread your way around steep curves, climbing to reveal unparalleled views of the Tongass National Forest, Behm Canal and Alaska's fabled Inside Passage.
Stops are made along the exclursion way to soak up the grandeur and beauty of this lush land. After enjoying a snack and beverage, drivers and passengers will have the opportunity to switch positions for the return trip. Be prepared to watch for wildlife along the way where eagles, deer or bears are frequently sighted.
It was fun and great view from up on the trail over the water and to other islands. Guides could be a little more informative about the area without being prompted with questions.

Its a rush. More fun in the rain. Dress warm though under the rain suit. Bring gloves. Sturdy shoes or boots recommended. Would be hard on bad back very bumpy. Excellent transportation to camp and back. Use the outhouse last thing before you go for you women or men out there.
