Juneau Ketchikan  
  Backcountry Jeep & Canoe Safari
Conquer Ketchikan's mountainous backroads!

Fill your senses with adventure and excitement as you take control of a 4-wheel drive Jeep Wrangler® and wend your way through the rugged back roads of Revillagigedo Island. Then grab a paddle and join your companions in a 37-foot, 20-passenger Indian-style canoe to navigate your way across a mountain lake, where a hearty snack and nature hike await.

For the Jeep® portion of the tour, you'll be paired with traveling companions in groups of four, and begin the adventure into the mountainous roads of the Tongass National Forest. The route takes you through lush rain forest, and up mountain roads to view magnificent scenery. By means of two-way radio your group leader and guide will provide you with interesting and informative commentary along the way. You'll be fascinated by the area's natural history as you pass through old growth and new growth forests. Learn about the timber industry's reforestation methods while you stop for some fantastic views and photo opportunities. Along the route there will be an opportunity to change drivers.

The Jeep® portion of your tour concludes with your arrival at Lake Harriet Hunt. Here, you'll experience a unique ecosystem from the vantage point of a large, easy to paddle, guided canoe. On the other side of the lake your expert safari guide will lead a nature hike through an old-growth forest. A remote camp is base for an Alaskan snack. Enjoy a short narrated transfer back to safari base camp and Ketchikan. Bring your camera and a drivers license.

Tour Includes: Round-trip transportation, Jeep Wrangler® shared with up to three others, interactive 2-way communication system in all Jeeps®, quality raingear and canoeing equipment (life jackets, paddles); souvenir button, snack and beverages consisting of clam chowder, rolls, jam, smoked salmon, hot chocolate, coffee and more. Souvenir hats and T-shirts available for purchase.

Customer Reviews:
Best of the BEST! What a fantastic trip we took on the 4x4 Backcountry Jeep & Canoe Safari. It was an excursion from our cruise and my teen daughters and I had the time of our lives. We had never been 4x4in before and it was phenomenal, we simply didn't want to stop. For the first time I headed right into the chuckholes and large puddles. My oldest said it was the highlight of her entire week. The canoe trip and nature walk was extremely enjoyable too and it was so picturesque and serene. But the star of this trip--and a big one at that--was the Jeep Wranglers! ~ Darin S.
