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!
the jeep was pretty fun... rough dirt roads through the forrest. There were a couple of jeeps that broke down during our excursion. 2 out of 6! The canoe was a fun easy paddle through a beautiful lake. We had a snack and a short trek through the rain forrest.. I would have loved MORE rain forrest.. More education on the millions of plants/trees/critters living there. It was such a beautiful cool place. If you want a little adventure and a really beautiful day out in nature... Go do this!!

Really enjoyed the canoeing and hike but not the Jeep ride. Nothing special.
