Your 4x4 adventure begins in Sitka and takes you to a remote island, where you will ride Polaris Rangers. You’ll enjoy exploring wildflower meadows, beautiful scenery while searching for wildlife such as Alaska Brown Bear and Sitka Black Tail Deer. You’ll be greeted at the tender pier by your van driver who will take you to an aluminum landing craft for a high speed boat ride to Kruzof Island where your 4x4 ride begins. Upon arrival, you’ll meet your guides who will have your 4x4’s warmed up and ready to go. After a quick safety orientation and operating instructions, you’re ready to set off on your adventure.

Your guide leads you along an off highway vehicle trail though muskegs and forest on the way to Iris Meadows estuary where wildlife are frequently seen. Stops will be made along the way for interpretive sessions and photographic opportunities. When you arrive at the estuary you can park the 4x4 to walk around and enjoy the scenery, watch for wildlife and take photes. After a snack, it’s time to ride back and catch the boat back to Sitka.
