Saxman Native Village Tour with Lumberjack Show
Tour Participation Requirements
Begin this cultural experience with a guided tour of historic Creek Street, once known as Ketchikan's red-light district. You'll pass landmarks like Dolly's House and Saxman Native Village, where you'll discover the rich native culture of the area, and the largest standing collection of totem poles. During your visit, you will also learn about the culture of southeast Alaskan Natives. Then, explore the area and wander through the park, view the intricate hand-carved art, and visit the Clan House.
Once you’ve had your fill of history, the tour will continue towards a modern day gladiator competition. Dressed in plaid, axe-wielding athletes will put on a show and demonstrate some of their best wood chopping skills. Join the rowdy crowd and cheer them on as they carve through lumber. The excitement never stops during this one-hour show and you'll surely be impressed by all the chopping, sawing, and tree climbing. Make sure to bring a camera to capture these top lumbermen at work.
This tour combines the past and present in order to bring you a remarkable cultural experience. As you travel from downtown Ketchikan, to Saxman Village, all the way to the most impressive wood chopping you have ever seen, you’ll get a comprehensive look into Alaskan culture.
