      There's only one way to see – and sense – the power of the Alaskan wilderness. You will first embark on an eight mile coastal drive to begin your experience at this pristine landscape. You will travel through the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary with a knowledgeable naturalist. 

      Experience a protected open estuary as you follow a wooden boardwalk along Eagle Creek for top views of the pristine wetlands. Major runs of salmon return to spawn in this creek, attracting the bears and seals that feed here. You'll have a good chance to see these creatures, as well as bald eagles, deer, mink, and marten, throughout your tour. Beyond the forest, experience close encounters with birds of prey at the Raptor Center, a natural setting where you'll see how injured eagles, owls, and other birds of prey are being are rehabilitated.

      After your half mile trail walk, you’ll tour the Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill where spruce, hemlock, and cedar lumber were produced. Many of the cedar planks were crafted into totemic artifacts by leading native carvers. You'll meet one of these carvers and learn magnificent totem poles are crafted from cedar logs. The artist honors the sanctuary's towering trees. 

      Towards the end of your tour, you will enjoy complimentary refreshments and sample Alaskan smoked salmon. You’ll also have the chance to wander around the General Store and purchase some of the best items and souvenirs!
