Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show
Duration: 1 1/4 hours
Tour Code: ktn-004
Witness Alaska's frontier lumberjacks do battle against British Columbia's premier woodsmen during this exciting, no-holds-barred lumberjack competition to determine who will claim the title of Bull of the Woods.
Depart the gangway for the brief walk along the pier in Ketchikan. Upon arrival at the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show venue, covered, heated and cushioned seating will be provided. You will then witness Alaska's rich and colorful forest history come to life as world-champion athletes appearing on ESPN will be featured in chopping, sawing, speed climbing, log rolling, and other contests.
The 13 back-to-back events will be hosted by our colorful camp cook and tale-twister, who will also share stories of a bygone era. Voted the Best New Attraction for 2000 by Alaska's Visitor Association, this wonderful combination of education, entertainment and excitement depicts how the lumberjacks overcame the rugged and often-hazardous Tongass Forest and coastal wilderness.
Please note: The venue is located on the pier in Ketchikan, and just a short walk from the gangway. No transportation is required. Videotaping is not permitted at the venue.
