Set off on an exploration that provides an intimate look at Ketchikan, Alaska’s first city. You’ll begin with a visit to a historic sawmill, where you’ll pop into the carving shed for a remarkable demonstration by a Native totem carver. Marvel at the intricacies of this time-honored art form practiced to this very day. From here, you’ll travel to the Alaska Raptor Center, a rehabilitation sanctuary for injured birds of prey. Here, you’ll have the chance to see a Bald Eagle up close and witness a demonstration of this American treasure’s amazing aerial agility. Stroll out to a viewing platform overlooking the Alaskan Rainforest. Take in the scenery and enjoy a snack of fresh smoked salmon and crackers.
