    Sarah was our guide and she was wonderful. She knew about the plants and animals and took the time to explain everything to us. She said she was new but it didn't seem like it! It was a very pleasant walk, not strenuous, and enjoyable. We finally got to see a black bear on the riverbank!

    Tess was an amazing guide, they provided ponchos to keep off the rain, and it was a really nice walk through the rainforest. We saw banana slugs, eagles, belted kingfishers, reindeer and a few salmon. The reindeer were in a pen, not roaming the forest, lol.

Where to stay in Ketchikan

For a small city, Ketchikan boasts a surprisingly diverse array of accommodations. A downtown hotel is the best option for those who want to stay within walking distance of the city’s restaurants, bars, stores, and attractions, plus it offers proximity to the water. If you have access to a car, you can save a few dollars and enjoy some of Alaska's famous scenery by staying farther out of town. The area's selection of bed and breakfasts includes a number of quirky establishments full of character. The surrounding Tongass National Forest has a well-equipped campground and RV park.
