Adventure Kart Expedition
Adventure Kart 4x4 Excursion in Ketchikan
Sit back, strap yourself in, and hit the accelerator for the off-road adventure Kart Expedition of a lifetime! Mountain trails through a timber harvested area offer the perfect venue for off-road challenges. Learn about the history, culture and economy of Ketchikan as you are transported by motor coach to this rainforest wilderness. Experience the rugged Alaskan wilderness from the driver's seat of a specially designed off-road adventure kart on this Ketchikan port trip.
At the Adventure Kart base camp, you will receive a safety briefing and gear up in preparation for the exciting, one-and-a-half-hour guided trek. Your caravan of karts sets out to explore the remote backcountry along several miles of improved forest trail, with your guide in the lead ATV. Feel the rush of adrenaline at the start of your journey as you navigate an obstacle course in a custom designed Tomcar that tests your ability to traverse through the remaining wilderness. A comfortable pace is maintained as you thread your way around steep curves, climbing to reveal unparalleled views of the Tongass National Forest, Behm Canal and Alaska's fabled Inside Passage.
Stops are made along the exclursion way to soak up the grandeur and beauty of this lush land. After enjoying a snack and beverage, drivers and passengers will have the opportunity to switch positions for the return trip. Be prepared to watch for wildlife along the way where eagles, deer or bears are frequently sighted.

My husband and I weren’t quite sure what to expect, but it certainly was fun! I drove up and he drove down. We stopped along the way and were given a tutorial by - I believe her name was Aubrey- that was great! Since she had grown up there we heard about things she did in seventh grade- being dropped on the end of an island with just a few items and had to survive for three days. How one of the first things they learn is how many different kinds of salmon there are and their names. That was wonderful. Both young women that took us up were great! Loved the gear because it rained and splashing through water without a windshield was like being a toddler in a gigantic puddle again. It was loads of fun! I’m not a salmon eater- so this was a perfect excursion for us!

Good operation and guides. Too short of a drive but the scenery is nice.

Karts are fun to drive and scenery is beautiful. You will get muddy and dirty but rubber suits keep your clothes clean but your shoes will get dirty so dress appropriately.

Four of us booked the Kart adventure. We had a wonderful time. Meeting place as easy to find. The drive to and from the Kart site was easy and in A/C. It had not rain in a few days so the ride was dusty. With rain the ride would be muddy. I recommend their rain gear RAIN or Shine. Enjoy
