This exceptional 2.5-hour opportunity to see the forested environs of Alaska begins with a ride through the town of Hoonah, which boasts the largest Tlingit village community in the world. Venture out into the wilderness to the Spasski River Valley, located in the Tongass National Forest along old logging roads. At the trailhead, begin your two-mile hike through a spectacular stretch of nature that cuts through private Native American-owned lands that are both secluded and pristine. Arrive at the top of a mountain for unforgettable views across Chichagof Island and its surrounding waterways. You might even see a whale breaching in the distance. Surrounded by lush foliage, your guide will provide details on the local flora and fauna and the diverse history of this great land. You may see brown bears, Sitka black-tailed deer and bald eagles. Then head down the trail and return to port.
