We had an excellent time with the bike ride through the rain forest. This was our first time on electric bicycles and it didn't take long to get use to them as well as enjoy, for the first time, bicycling uphill. The forest was beautiful and there was a harbor seal munching on salmon on the mouth of the stream where it met the water.

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.

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!
