What You Visit:
Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show
The Travel Channel calls the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show one of the "Top 10 Things to See in Alaska." From the pier, you'll walk to the covered, heated and cushioned grandstand. You'll get to see Alaska's frontier lumberjacks battle British Columbia's premier woodsmen in a no-holds-barred competition for the title "Bull of the Woods." These world champion athletes are featured in springboard chopping, buck sawing, axe throwing, log rolling and the thrilling 50-foot tree climb, while the colorful host delights the crowd with stories of lumberjack lore.
Be prepared to see six-foot razor-sharp saws slicing through trees, men running atop spinning logs floating in the water, souped-up chainsaws flying through the air, and more! At the end of the show, you can have your picture taken with the "surviving" lumberjack. (Videotaping of the show is not permitted).
Purchase popcorn, cookies, candy, soda and coffee before the show.
Look for unique Alaskan souvenirs like the Lumberjack calendar as a perfect memento of your visit. Afterwards, you're free to wander the town, or simply take the short walk back to your ship at your leisure.
Special Notes:No charge for children two years of age and younger. Videotaping of the show is not permitted, but still photography is welcome. Guests make their own way to the show on a 5- to 10-minute walk from the pier.
