Join your local and experienced guide at the cruise dock, and then venture off into the wilderness on this authentic Alaskan sightseeing journey. After some brief introduction and general overview of what is ahead, you'll begin your bike ride journey into the lush forests around Ketchikan.
If at some point it seems like the daylight is getting dimmer, it's not a figment of your imagination. It's the reality of the towering Spruce and Hemlock trees hovering over you. This three-mile stretch gives unprecedented views that calm and relax the soul.
Your attentive guide will point out the unique features of the forest and will offer you breaks as needed. You'll be served a snack the Alaskan way, complete with clam chowder and smoked salmon. You'll continue to look for fauna, and the unique Sundew plant, which uses the moisture from the dew that enables them to trap and feed on the insects.
