|Backcountry Jeep & Canoe Safari
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.
