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.

What a thrill! Totally enjoyed the Adventure Karts. My wife and I both looked forward to this excursion and we were not disappointed. We got a thorough briefing on safety, driving protocols, and what to see on the drive itself. While we did not see much wildlife, we loved the backwoods nature of the trip. Staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. We only wished the drive was ten-times longer because of the fun we had on the trip.
This was so much fun, but I wish I had dressed a lot warmer! We went in middle of June and it was SO COLD and WET. They provide rain gear to wear over your clothes (I highly encourage you to wear!) but it doesn't keep you warm. You will want gloves and a a scarf or face mask to wear. You get a full size helmet, but the wind still gets under the shield a little. The ride was so much fun! With all the twists, turns, bumps, and rugged trails, you will get a true off-roading experience! We saw several amazing views and walked a short walk up to a waterfall.
This was a lot of fun and worth the trip. We had a lot of fun and definitely got wet and dirty. Glad they gave us water proof pants and jacket to wear.
It was fun and great view from up on the trail over the water and to other islands. Guides could be a little more informative about the area without being prompted with questions.
