Take a walk on the wild side — literally — in Tongass National Forest, and marvel at the ferocious beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. The Tongass is the world's largest temperate rain forest, home to majestic mountains, verdant old-growth forest, fjords, bays, islands and streams. Unspoiled natural surroundings are center stage in this tour. A 10-minute van drive will take you to the trailhead.
Step into the ancient forest, fill your lungs with clean, cool air and allow peace and solitude to envelope you. During the two-mile walk, there will be pauses for photos and wildlife sightings. Animals present themselves occasionally and black bears are frequently seen during the salmon season at the waterfall.
Bald eagles wheel in the sky overhead, and the waters teem with marine life, including trout and Pacific salmon. Listen and watch as your experienced guide shares secrets of the forest and leads you to the best viewing spots.
The very essence of the Tongass is its towering tree canopy, dominated by evergreens, red and yellow cedar, hemlock, and spruce. Here, nearly every intersection is an animal crossing. Birdsong is the lingua franca. Come to this primal place to regain your sense of awe and childlike wonder.
