Ketchikan Electric Bike and Hike Tour

Come on an adventure by e-bike tour in SE Alaska. Join us for an easy and enjoyable electric-assist bicycle ride on the road to nowhere, the end of our paved road system. This road dead ends at the edge of extensive wilderness, where you will then take a guided hike on an enjoyable trail through dense rainforests, along a stream with waterfalls, rapids, and calm sections.

This hike features a wide array of flora and fauna and beautiful beach views from which we often watch seals swimming, salmon jumping, and sometimes even get to watch humpback whales feeding near the shoreline or Orcas come by.

Take a break at the stream's edge, which just may be the quietest and most relaxing place on your whole vacation. You will then return hike to the waiting e-bikes, and on the return bicycle ride, make another stop along the Inside Passage shoreline to check out the sea and beach comb a little bit on the rocky shore.

Smoked salmon, picnic tables, and a great view are waiting as we return to our scenic oceanfront facilities. A convenience store with craft beers is on site. All tours provide round-trip transportation from your cruise ship/hotel, and excellent gear is provided for any needs.

Your crew features mostly local guides and professional educators with experience as commercial Alaskan salmon fishermen, commercial winter dive fisheries in Southeast Alaska, experience guiding dog sled tours and work in guiding positions across the country. Their experience and personalities bring great depth to your experience.

This was our second e-bike tour this trip. We liked it very much. Our guides were very experienced and provided great information from the bike ride and through the hike in the rain forest. The scenery during this excursion was beautiful and walking through the rainforest was a great experience breathing such pristine air. Seeing the salmon was also a thrill.

Sep 2023 - Joleta C.

We had such a great time on this excursion. We booked separately from our cruise and everything was great! The hike is more like a stroll through the woods but beautiful. We saw the salmon swimming up stream, a bear cub up in a tree, a bald eagle and whales. Our event leader was amazing and so much fun! Would definitely recommend!

Jul 2023 - Natalie M.

Great tour. We were picked up at the terminal and returned in a timely manner. The bike ride was beautiful, saw a few waterfalls along the way. Did a short hike out to the beach thru the trees and saw another waterfall. Highly recommend.

Jun 2023 - Kelly F.

Love the ride and the walk through the forest, where we saw the flora (red cedars, waterfalls, and rushing creeks) and the fauna (a mink, sea otters, and a crab)! The e-bikes made the ride easy and our tour guide was awesome! She pointed out everything and then some. In the end, the snacks were a delight (salmon of course, and hot coffee/cocoa because of the weather). We enjoyed this trip, even if it was a bit chilly and raining, but we expected that for a rainforest in Alaska. If we were to go on a cruise again, would book this excursion again.

Jun 2023 - Catherine Q.

I decided to skip the Bike Tour because I'm not too comfortable on e-bikes. Others did not rave about the biking portion either. However, the hike by the river and waterfalls was magnificent. Loved every moment of it. Highly recommend!

May 2023 - Debra B.

This e-bike trip was my favorite tour from the entire trip. The day was crystal clear and the weather warm. The ride through the area was enjoyable and the staff excellent! I would highly encourage anyone to do this, it was a blast (I'm 65).

May 2023 - Aisha B.

This was fantastic! We loved the staff and trek so much. There was time to take pictures, take our time riding, and I even took a shell home. It was the best excursion on our whole trip.
