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.

The backcountry jeep expedition took us through the back country of Ketchikan. It was a bumpy, dirty, and rough ride, but we had so much fun! The scenery was amazing. The canoe ride was a smooth glide across a pristine lake. We loved our guide. She was upbeat, smart, and perfect for the job.

I enjoyed the excursion. The canoe ride was peaceful and beautiful. The food was lacking and I would suggest they have things that are more individually wrapped instead of a bowl of goldfish etc that have been sitting out. The jeep ride was a lot of fun.

What a great time we all had! The guides were very friendly and informative. Although the weather wasn't very cooperative, we still did it all and had lots of fun and laughs! I'd highly recommend it!

This was a very fun excursion. We were able to see so much and experience beautiful views, take postcard pictures and learn about the flora. Creating the echo on the lake was something we've never been able to experience before. Our guide, Oliver, was very professional and courteous.

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.
