Totem Bight Tour

This trip will take you to the outside of Ketchikan, as Totem Bight is on the beachfront only 15 minutes from downtown. It was originally the site of a traditional fishing camp and has become a favored spot on anyone’s visit to Ketchikan. The short walk through the woods to the array of the totems provides both an aesthetic and educational experience. Your guide will familiarize you with the lofty examples of North Pacific rainforest trees that flourish here.

The 14 brightly colored totem poles that are on display today were recovered from overgrown village sites and repaired or duplicated by skilled carvers using handmade tools. There is also a traditional dwelling (also called a clanhouse) at the totem park, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. Recent improvements to the structure illuminate the social life and family structure of Alaska’s residents centuries ago.

Enjoy sightseeing in the city on your return to Ketchikan, visiting local attractions and learning about the history and culture of Alaska’s first city on the Inside Passage. Recommendations for food and drink are eagerly exchanged by your guide. Travel by van in a small group to one of Alaska’s premier destinations!
