Escape into the wilderness for a relaxing day of paddling, a beautiful hike through the temperate rainforest, and an oceanside picnic featuring local Juneau foods around the campfire on this family-friendly Taste of Nature Kayak and Gourmet Food Adventure. This Juneau kayaking experience takes you far from the crowds for a laidback and delicious day among the wonders of Alaskan nature: watching for sea lions, seals, porpoises, eagles, and maybe even humpback whales as you paddle quietly in a remote wilderness haven with spectacular views of distant glaciers and the majestic Chilkat and Coast Ranges. Your Taste of Nature Kayak and Gourmet Food Adventure begins just north of Juneau with a 15-minute guided walk through the Tongass National Forest, the world’s largest temperate rainforest. You’ll then arrive at a secluded local harbor, where you’ll board two-person sea kayaks for up to two hours of gentle paddling far away from the tour boats, allowing unparalleled opportunities for wildlife viewing along the rugged Pacific coastline, and quiet enjoyment of the spectacular natural setting. The gentle pace and small group allow for plenty of interaction and the opportunity to learn about your surroundings from your expert guides, who have a true love of nature and the outdoors. When you return to land, a gourmet picnic featuring craft foods from Juneau will be waiting for you onshore, so have your appetite ready!
Your kayaking Juneau eco-adventure begins with pick-up right at the cruise docks and transport to the kayak base for gear-fitting and safety instructions before travel to the launch location about 20 miles north of Juneau. Your expert guides will select a route for your sea kayak paddle to maximize wildlife viewing opportunities. When you return from your interpretative paddle, a gourmet picnic lunch will be waiting for you! This meal includes the highlights of Juneau’s craft food scene, a sockeye salmon spread, kelp salsa, and more. Absolutely do not forget to bring your camera to capture the highlights of this true Alaska wilderness experience! Kayaking Juneau is a memory you’ll keep for long after you return to shore.
