Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your excursion begins as you board your motorcoach for a scenic, narrated drive to the base camp, a privately owned rainforest property.

Upon arrival at the base camp, you'll receive a safety briefing and gear up for a thrilling, one-and-a-half-hour guided trek. As you'll soon see, mountain trails through a timber-harvested area offer the perfect venue for off-road challenges.

Feel the rush of adrenaline at the start of your journey as you traverse through the wilderness. Your caravan of Tomcar adventure karts sets out to explore the remote backcountry along several miles of improved forest trail. A comfortable pace is maintained as you thread your way around steep curves, climbing to reveal breathtaking views of the Tongass National Forest, Behm Canal and Alaska's fabled Inside Passage.

Stops along the route allow you to soak up the grandeur of this lush land, and snap a photo or two of breathtaking vistas, waterfalls and forest ecosystems. Be sure to watch for wildlife throughout the trip as eagles, deer or bears are frequently sighted.

After a light snack, drivers and passengers will have the opportunity to switch positions and try their hand at driving the kart for the return trip to camp. You'll cap your day off with souvenir shopping and a scenic drive back to the pier.
