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!

This was one of the best excursion mostly because of the guides great attitude. The bus driver was chipper, the canoe girl leader was awesome and the jeep excursion leader was very talkative and patient. The food was great with a great setting to take a break.

The Backcountry Jeep & Canoe Safari was a fun excursion! Our party of 5 adults enjoyed the canoe ride, the snack, and the Jeep drive. Our guide, Jesus from Texas, was wonderful! He made the canoe adventure very exciting and fun and introduced to many things "Alaskan!" Wish the Jeep driving could have been a little longer and maybe a little more strenuous. Other than that, this was one of our favorite excursions while in Alaska.

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.
