Adventure Karts Expedition

Arriving

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!

    Will we make it back to the ship in time? What if we don't?

    Answer: We've never left anyone behind and only schedule tours that work well with your cruise ship's itinerary. We leave plenty of cushion so you can confidently book your trips independently.

    Do I get to drive the karts?

    Answer: Yes, the karts are each equipped for 2 passengers, and you will be either a driver or passenger on this excursion with opportunities to trade off along the way. Don't worry if it's your first time in this type of vehicle; no previous experience is required.

    What if our ship is delayed or doesn't make it into port? Refund?

    Answer: It's very rare that a ship is delayed into port, but in those cases, we will try our best to work with you to reschedule the tour to a later time. If that is not a possibility or your ship doesn't make it into port, we will of course refund the full cost of the tour.

    What should we wear and bring?

    Answer: This tour operates rain or shine, and rain is common as we lie in a temperate rainforest! For comfort, we typically recommend long pants, closed-toed shoes and a waterproof jacket. Some guests choose to bring a small bag or backpack along to store extra layers, a bottle of water and cameras.

    Is this tour safe?

    Answer: Absolutely - the tour is not a fast-paced excursion, and you won't be out there to break any new land-speed records. The tempo will always be within your own comfort limits, and the trail is always wide enough for passing vehicles.

    Will we get dirty?

    Answer: In short, yes, a little. :) Full pants and jackets are available to slip on over your existing clothes to keep the clothes you're wearing clean, but the trail can be dusty and/or muddy. With this in mind, footwear is not provided so hiking boots or shoes you don't mind getting a little dusty are recommended.
