Rainforest Sanctuary & Lumberjack Show

Start your adventure at the Great Alaska Lumberjack Show. Here, hardy lumberjacks bring to life Alaska’s colorful forest history with an action packed competition in the partially covered and heated outdoor arena. Cheer on your team of world champion lumberjacks in events such as chopping, sawing, tree climbing and more. Next, board your coach for a narrated scenic drive to Herring Cove. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a naturalist who will guide you along improved trails into the dense forest, for a chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat. The sanctuary borders the Tongass National Forest. Stroll through tall stands of hemlock, spruce and Alaska cedar, stopping at viewing areas to photograph this natural wonderland.


The forest trail leads to an elevated boardwalk overlooking Eagle Creek where, during spawning season, salmon runs attract eagles, bears, seals and shorebirds. Bears and seals feed on the salmon while eagles and other birds wait for the scraps. Seasonal changes in the ecosystem result in varying levels of animal sightings. Next, meet and feed Alaska reindeer and take pictures with these gentle creatures. Watch a master Native carver at work on totem poles, walk through the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill and photograph bald eagles up close at the Alaska Wildlife Foundation exhibit. Browse through the general s tore and enjoy a snack before returning to your cruise ship pier.


Note: Wheelchair access may be limited – for details, please consult your Shore Excursion staff. Wear comfortable walking shoes and warm clothing. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed and are more frequent in midsummer. Please note that there may be a short wait prior to the Lumberjack Show. Time can be spent on your own or in the rustic company store located at the Lumberjack Show. Tour may operate in reverse.
