About This Excursion

Fill your senses with adventure and excitement as you take control of a 4-wheel drive Jeep Wrangler® and wind your way through the rugged back roads of Revillagigedo Island. Then grab a paddle and join your companions for an authentic Alaskan canoe experience.

For the Jeep® portion of this safari adventure, you’ll be paired with up to 4 traveling companions (there will be plenty of opportunities to change drivers for those who want to get behind the wheel!). While you traverse the mountain roads of the Tongass National Forest, your guide will provide you with interesting and informative commentary by means of two-way radio. You’ll be fascinated by the area’s natural history as you pass through old growth and new growth forests. Stop for fantastic views and excellent photo opportunities along the way.

The Jeep® portion of your tour concludes with your arrival at Lake Harriet Hunt. Here, you’ll experience a unique ecosystem from the vantage point of a 37-foot, 20 passenger, Alaska Native style canoe; these traditional Alaskan canoes are fast, stable, and easy to maneuver. Once on the other side of the lake, your expert safari guide will lead you to a camp on shore where an Alaskan snack awaits. From the camp, your guide will interpret the features of a temperate rainforest on an optional nature walk through old-growth forest. Your excursion concludes with a scenic motorcoach drive back to the pier.

Don’t forget to bring your camera and a driver’s license!
