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 comfort of covered, heated and cushioned grandstands, you'll get to see Alaska's frontier lumberjacks battle British Columbia's premier woodsmen in a no-holds-barred competition for the title of "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 lumberjack lore. Created by three-time world champion speed climber and All Round Ironjack Rob Scheer, the show is fun for the entire family.

Axe Throwing Competition
Your tour includes an exciting axe throwing competition. World-class lumberjacks will teach you the art of throwing a 7-lb razor-sharp axe, and then you will go head to head in a thrilling competition against other participants.

What you will see along the way:
It's a quick walk from port to the show. Afterwards, you're free to wander the town or simply take the short stroll back to your ship at your leisure.

Photo Opportunity:
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 Alaska souvenirs like the lumberjack calendar as a perfect memento of your visit.

Special Notes:

Minimum age is 10 years. 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.
