Strap yourself in for the off-road adventure of a lifetime through the grandeur of the Alaskan wilderness as you get behind the wheel of your own two-person custom-designed offroad adventure kart! Cover 14 exciting miles of mountain road on your Adventure Karts Expedition, winding through dense forests and around steep curves as you climb upwards to be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the Tongass National Forest, Behm Canal, and the Inside Passage. Explore the backcountry along forest trails while your guide sets the pace in the lead ATV and you experience one of the best Ketchikan tours for thrill-seekers. Watch out for wildlife along the way, as sighting eagles, deer, or bears only adds to the excitement!
Pick up for the Adventure Karts Expedition is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the cruise docks in downtown Ketchikan. From here, you’ll enjoy a 25-minute drive with informative narration to the starting point for your off-road wilderness adventure. Full pant/jacket combos are provided to keep your clothing clean from flying dust or mud, as are helmets and rain gear if needed. After a short safety orientation, you can fire up the engine of your Tomcar ATV and hit the road for an hour and a half of rough riding through the wilderness. A snack and bottled water are provided at the halfway point, and there are further stops along the way to change drivers and enjoy the amazing views from the highest points along the trail. Don’t worry if it rains on the big day, as the Adventure Kart Expedition offers even more fun and excitement when trails are wet! Without a doubt one of our best Ketchikan tours for adventure-lovers, the Adventure Karts Expedition is an outing you won’t be likely to forget!
