Don't be fooled by cheap imitations -- this Saxman tour provides exclusive access to the Beaver Clan House, a working Native carving center, and a chance to view the traditional Native dancers first hand. You can't buy this tour elsewhere, so if you're going to Saxman Native Village make sure you are part of this genuine, up-close look at the rich living culture of Southeast Alaska's Native Americans.

The Tlingits welcome you in the traditional style that defines the culture of Southeast Alaska. A short video program introduces you to the culture and history of Saxman. You will then enter the Beaver Clan House where you are welcomed by song and dance. Visitors are encouraged to participate in the final dance.

At the Saxman Totem Park, discover one of the largest gatherings of totems in the world. Your guide will help unravel the mysteries of these towering, majestic poles. At the Village Carving Center, skilled craftsmen pass on their skill to eager apprentices.

Fine Alaska Native art and small mementos are for sale at the Village Store.

Notes:

Suitable for guests using a wheelchair with a companion to assist. Add the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show for a great combination.
