Backcountry 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 4 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 carnivorous 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!

Beautiful and bumpy

We really enjoyed this excursion. If you could give increments for score, I would say this place was a 4.6/5. I liked that they tried to give parties their own Jeeps. It was just my daughter and I, and this was a new wild experience for her, so it was nice to be able to see and hear her reaction to all the bouncing around going up and down the trail roads. The canoe ride was beautiful, but if it matters to your group, you are in one large canoe as a whole group. All the staff were friendly and made things fun and easy. We enjoyed it.

A canoe trip on a beautiful lake, a short hike, very good clam chowder, and then off-roading. What was there not to enjoy. The staff was great and very knowledgeable about the area. I did wish it was a little longer, to have more time off-roading.
