Get a real feel for Alaskan life through experiences that reveal some of the most fascinating cultural and historical aspects. Your immersion begins with a lumberjack show, during which the competitors will go head-to-head in events such as log chopping, sawing and tree scaling. Their prodigious skills and fierce determination to be crowned “Bull of the Woods” will be inspiring. Similarly, you will be impressed by the displays at Cape Fox Lodge, where you will delve into the indigenous Tlingit culture. Expect to see artifacts such as a traditional hand-carved canoe, painted totems and a totem mural that Tlingit artist Nathan Jackson carved. You will also get a literal taste of the Alaska at the lodge by sampling Alaskan specialties after watching a local chef prepare them. The selection may include reindeer sausage, stuffed caribou and salmon risotto with huckleberry sauce. Afterwards, you can ride the funicular down to the historic boardwalk on Creek Street.
