Feel your worries slip away as you soak up the serenity of Tongass National Forest while gliding over the still waters of Lake Harriet Hunt in a Native-style canoe. Whether this is your first time canoeing or you're an old pro, the scenery you'll paddle through is so breathtaking, you may find it indescribable so have your camera handy to show the folks back home. Paddling under the direction of an experienced guide, you'll scan the shore for wildlife and learn about Ketchikan's natural and Native history. Paddle to shore and walk to base camp for a well-earned snack and beverage. Refreshed, you'll set out on a short nature hike with your guide who'll share his knowledge of the forest's flora and fauna. Before returning to Ketchikan, you'll receive a souvenir "I Canoed Ketchikan" pin.
