A Taste of Alaska

Ketchikan: Rainforest Wildlife Sanctuary, Eagles, & Totems - 2.75 Hours

A premier Alaska wildlife viewing opportunity. Take a scenic coastal drive to rustic Herring Cove, where a naturalist guides you along improved trails into the dense forest, for a chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat. The sanctuary borders the Tongass National Forest, the second largest rainforest in the world!

Stroll through tall stands of hemlock, spruce and Alaska cedar, stopping at viewing areas to photograph this natural wonderland. See old-growth trees and a multitude of plants in this lush rainforest. The forest trail leads to an elevated boardwalk overlooking Eagle Creek where, during spawning season, salmon runs attract eagles, bears, seals and shorebirds. Bears and seals feed on the salmon while eagles and other birds wait for the scraps. Mink, marten and wolves also frequent the area. Seasonal changes in the ecosystem result in varying levels of animal sightings. Watch and listen to nature's symphony in this spectacular setting!

Next, meet and feed Alaska reindeer and take pictures with these gentle creatures. Watch a master Native carver at work on totem poles, walk through the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill, and photograph bald eagles up close at the Alaska Wildlife Foundation exhibit. Browse through the General Store and enjoy a snack at the end of the half mile hike.

Your tour includes complimentary admission to the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center, an impressive facility featuring exhibits that focus on the rainforest, resources, native cultures, and ecosystems of Southeast Alaska. The center is operated by the U.S. Forest Service in conjunction with other federal and state agencies.
