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!

a great, fun experience. a nice combination adventure of driving a 4 wheel jeep in very rough terrain, plus a short canoe trip and nature walk, and nice snacks. Great family experience.

Reviewer: Sally DiVecchio
Rain did not keep us from having a good time on the jeep and canoe safari! All the more fun splashing through mud puddles on the jeep part of the trip! The company supplied us with heavy rain coats for the canoe part. After the canoe trip and a short hike we were rewarded with hot soup, hot cocoa and other treats. It was fun in the rain and I imagine even more fun on a sunny day!
