      About this Ketchikan, Alaska tour

      The name is longer than the island itself, so that might be why the locals just call it Revill. Revillagigedo Island is 55 miles long, 35 miles wide and is the 12th largest island in the United States. For those who are not fond of towns or roads, Revillagigedo Island is the place to be for an outdoor recreational experience.

      First, enjoy an invigorating drive through the backcountry in your very own Jeep Wrangler®. Pair up in groups of four and listen along as your group leader provides interesting facts via two-way radio. The Tongass National Forest will come to life right before your eyes. Revillagigedo (part of the National Forest) was at the heart of a logging controversy that pit environmentalists against local residents over plans to clear cut old-growth trees on the island, in what is known as the "Roadless Rule." This conservation policy limits road construction – and the accompanying environmental degradation on areas of public land like the Tongass National Forests.

      Loggers in the area sought to roll back the restrictions through a court challenge that was overwhelmingly defeated when the United States District Court in Washington denied the petition. As such, visitors are treated to an unspoiled wonderland, as the next part of this tour will show you as you cross the gorgeous Lake Harriet Hunt. Jump into the canoe and gently paddle across the calm waters; you won’t know where to look as the beautiful landscape surrounds you.

      To end this nature-filled experience, your guide will take you to shore where your chef will already be preparing delicious snacks. Warm up with some hearty chowder, smoked salmon, fresh rolls and sweet wild berry jam. There's no better bonding trip that brings you closer to family or a friend and even closer to nature!

      A picture is worth a thousand words.

      The Hunt family played an intricate role in the rise of Ketchikan, Alaska. Harriet Hunt loved to take pictures and she was known for lugging around her heavy camera everywhere she went to document the progression of her beloved city. Harriet took thousands of pictures before her death of a stroke in 1934 as such having the lake named after her (Lake Harriet Hunt) for her role in preserving Ketchikan’s history.
