Ketchikan, Alaska-port

Ketchikan, on the southwest side of Revillagigedo Island, grew up around salmon canneries and sawmills. Ketchikan's name supposedly comes from the native term "Katch Kanna", which roughly translates: "spread wings of a thundering eagle." At one time Ketchikan was proclaimed the “Salmon Capital of the World.” An outstanding collection of totem poles make a visit to Ketchikan essential for anyone interested in Native art. Travelers flock to Ketchikan for their first look at the North Country, and are rarely disappointed.

    Tour Code: ktn-009

    Experience the rugged Alaskan wilderness from the driver's seat of a specially designed off-road adventure kart.

    Get ready for the off-road adventure of a lifetime! Mountain trails through a privately owned rainforest preserve offer the perfect venue for off-road challenges. Learn about the history, culture and economy of Ketchikan as you are transported by motorcoach to this rainforest wilderness.

    Arriving at the Adventure Kart base camp, you will receive a safety briefing and gear up in preparation for the exciting, 90-minute guided trek. Your caravan of karts sets out to explore the remote back country along several miles of improved forest trail, with your guide in the lead ATV. 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 way to soak up the grandeur and beauty of this lush land.

    About mid-point in your ride, you will stop for a snack and beverage, then drivers and passengers 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.

    Please note: Guests should be prepared for a very bumpy ride and therefore this tour is not recommended for guests with back and/or neck problems or pregnant women. Expect the trail to be dusty or muddy depending on the weather conditions. Vehicle speed is mechanically regulated to a maximum of 30 m.p.h. Each driving participant must present a valid driver's license and be at least 16 years of age. Participants must be at least 40 pounds and 50 inches in height to ensure maximum benefit from the safety harnesses on the vehicles. Maximum weight is 300 lbs. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. A liability waiver is required and must be signed in the presence of the operator.
