Drive a four-wheel drive automatic Jeep Wrangler along mountainous roads through Tongass National Forest. The safari travels from sea level to the sub-alpine region of this unique coastal island. Learn about the area's natural history as you drive abandoned logging roads. Along the way, you’ll make a stop to take advantage of photo opportunities and to rotate drivers so everyone has a turn at the wheel.
Your next destination is the secluded mountain lake - Lake Harriet Hunt - where you’ll board a large, easy-to-paddle canoe much like the Natives used to travel the coastal waterways. Your safari guide will then lead a brief nature walk through old-growth forest from the remote camp where your cook will prepare an Alaska-style snack, including chowder and smoked salmon.
