Begin your journey with a scenic drive along the Tongass Narrows to Totem Bight State Park, home to one of the world's largest stands of totems.

Stroll the Totem Bight trail under a canopy of majestic hemlock and cedar trees. At the end of the trail, you will find the totems. Through lively stories you will learn about the culture and lifestyles practiced by the Northwest Coastal Natives.

Step inside 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 have 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.
