Your guide will meet you in the Adventure Center for a brief safety talk before heading out to the bus for your 2 1/2 hour tour. Your journey out to the Spasski River is a tour in itself with your local guide narrating as you travel through the Tlingit village of Hoonah and through the forests and muskegs of Chichagof Island.
You'll want to keep an eye out for bald eagles, woodpeckers, Sitka black-tailed deer and the Alaska coastal bear. When you arrive at the river, your guide will lead you on "the trail of the bear," a boardwalk that follows in the footsteps of the island's largest inhabitant, as well as other wildlife that have used this area for thousands of years to access the bounty of the river and surrounding valley.
Need to Know:
Note: Participants must be at least 8 years of age. You'll be in wilderness areas that are not fenced and the wildlife is not in captivity therefore, sightings cannot be guaranteed. We recommend that you wear comfortable walking shoes.
