What You Can Expect
The driving portion of your adventure starts as you are grouped with three fellow travelers for your tour of the mountainous terrain of Tongass National Forest. Follow the route through the lush rainforest and up mountain roads to admire the spectacular scenery. Through the two-way radios, your group leader and guide will offer interesting and informative commentary as you drive. Be fascinated by the area’s natural history as you pass through old-growth and new-growth forests and pull-over for some fantastic. Along the way, stop to change drivers so that anyone who wants to get behind the wheel will have the opportunity.
Your Jeep adventure ends at Lake Harriet Hunt, where you’ll leave the Jeep behind for a quieter form of transport – a 37-foot (11-meter), 20-person canoe! Experience this unique Alaskan ecosystem as you paddle the large, Native American-style canoe across the lake with your guide. When you reach the other side of the lake, your expert guide will lead you on a nature hike through an old-growth forest.
During your nature walk, take a break, relax and enjoy your Alaskan snack at a remote camp in Tongass National Forest! Refuel with smoked salmon, clam chowder, fresh bread rolls with local wild-berry jam, hot chocolate, coffee and more. The tour ends with a short narrated transfer back to the cruise port.

We really enjoyed this.
We booked on line before we left New Zealand. There were no hassles to hook up with our tour operator and destination. Even the bus trip to the tour depot was interesting. Warm welcome;safety procedures and away we went om a magical tour. Lots of communication between lead and backup jeep and we could communicate on our several stops scenery we had seen and would like to stop and view and take photos. The guides were down to earth, knowledgeable, fun and family orientated in their own personal lives."That is my beautiful wife just passing us." My husband and I are in the 55yr to 65yr age group and had no trouble with the 4 wheel drive mountain ascent and descent and paddling the 20 person canoe to a spectacular island, refreshment area and tropical rain forest. This tour has given us an impetus to revisit this same experience in our home country- New Zealand.
