      About this Ketchikan, Alaska tour

      Get whisked away by trolley for this truly Ketchikan experience, full of mystique, culture, and rousing history. Your adventure begins 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. Wander the park and view the intricate hand-carved art, visit the Clan House, and see area Tlinglit (Native Alaskans) at work.

      Once you’ve had your fill of history it’s time for a modern day gladiator competition – minus the Caesar haircuts and Roman skirts. Instead, you'll see plaid and scruff-adorned, axe-wielding athletes – join the rowdy crowd in cheering for your champion. The excitement never stops during this one-hour show, and you'll be so impressed by all the chopping, sawing, and tree climbing. These aren’t your typical lumberjacks.

      On this GoBe adventure you get to combine the past and present, wandering from downtown Ketchikan (which combines a mix of both) to Saxman Village (a glimpse into the past) with an added bonus of the most impressive wood chopping you have ever seen!

      Rolled over

      The sport of Logrolling isn’t for the weak. The competition begins with two competitors positioned on opposite ends of a log floating in the water. The aim is to stay on by sprinting, causing the log to roll furiously- first one to fall off loses! This isn’t your ordinary balancing act.
