Totem Bight Park and Rain Forest Canoe

Uncover the rich cultural history of the Alaskan Natives in this perfect combination of traditions and adventure. You will travel 10 miles north of Ketchikan to visit the Totem Bight State Historical Park, an 11-acre park featuring ancient totem poles set in a lush rainforest, before heading to Lake Harriet Hunt for your experience in Native-style canoes on a pristine mountain lake.

At Lake Harriet Hunt, climb in to your easy-to-paddle, 15-passenger traditional Alaskan canoe, much like the Alaska Natives used to travel the coastal waterways. You will explore all the historical artifacts that have been restored and re-carved along the Tongass Narrows, and the colorful community house called the Clan House. You will then learn how the natives traveled the long distances of the southeast Alaska waterways in large carved canoes (all necessary equipment, including rain gear, is provided).

Your local, knowledgeable safari guide will lead you to a camp on shore, where a cook is waiting to prepare a delicious, traditional meal consisting of chowder, smoked salmon, rolls, and wild berry jam, all just or you. From the camp, your guide will interpret the features of temperate rainforest on an optional nature walk through the old-growth forest.

Get ready for this once in a lifetime adventure in one of the most majestic places you will ever come across.

Reviewer: Catherine Carpenter
Because my husband & I were the only 2 on the tour, we could not canoe as it was a 14 person canoe. The weather was miserable but our guide Doran was fantastic! His knowledge of the totems, stories, history was amazing! He knew about the vegetation in the area as well. Answered questions very comfortably. Very personable We did visit the canoe site which was lovely inspite of the rain. So glad we had this experience!
