Treat yourself to an action-packed fun time at the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show. Just a short walk from the pier, this is where the world's best lumberjacks go head-to-head in more than a dozen exciting events such as chopping, sawing, relay races, axe throwing, log rolling and a 50-foot speed climb. A colorful host will introduce the events and offer a historical view of the Alaskan timber industry, which has shaped this rugged land. Don't miss this celebration of a bygone era. It's a rip-roaring good time and quality entertainment for all ages -- a fun, family-friendly event.
Then, begin your land journey with a scenic drive along the Tongass Narrows to Totem Bight State Park. Stroll the Totem Bight Trail under a canopy of majestic hemlock and cedar trees. At the trail's end, you will find an extensive collection of totems. Through lively stories, you will learn about the culture and lifestyle practiced by the Northwest Coastal Natives and have a chance to enter an authentic Native clan house. After a brief stop at the quaint Alaska Totem Trading Store, an entertaining city tour shows you the industries that made Ketchikan the Salmon Capital of the World. Returning to the pier, catch a glimpse of Ketchikan's colorful past as you drive past the Creek Street historic red light district.
