Adventure Go-Kart Expedition
Duration: 3 1/4 hours
Tour Code: ktn-009
Experience the rugged Alaskan wilderness from the driver's seat of a specially designed off-road adventure kart.
Get ready for the off-road adventure of a lifetime! Mountain trails through a privately owned rainforest preserve offer the perfect venue for off-road challenges. Learn about the history, culture and economy of Ketchikan as you are transported by motorcoach to this rainforest wilderness.
Arriving at the Adventure Kart base camp, you will receive a safety briefing and gear up in preparation for the exciting, 90-minute guided trek. Your caravan of karts sets out to explore the remote back country along several miles of improved forest trail, with your guide in the lead ATV. A comfortable pace is maintained as you thread your way around steep curves, climbing to reveal unparalleled views of the Tongass National Forest, Behm Canal and Alaska's fabled Inside Passage. Stops are made along the way to soak up the grandeur and beauty of this lush land.
About mid-point in your ride, you will stop for a snack and beverage, then drivers and passengers have the opportunity to switch positions for the return trip. Be prepared to watch for wildlife along the way where eagles, deer or bears are frequently sighted.
