Highlights
  • Ride along the trail to Tongass National Forest with an electric bike
  • Trek through the rain forest and explore the native wildlife of the area
  • The perfect excursion for cruise ship passengers who want to see more
What to expect
Explore the lush Alaskan rain forest in this small-group tour with a maximum of six people, perfect for cruise ship passengers. Maximize your port time by combining multiple activities on this dual e-bike and hiking tour. Using an electric bike, head along Ketchikan’s paved bike path to the trailhead. Electric bikes can cover more distance and are much more fun than traditional bicycles, making the journey much easier. This leaves you with plenty of energy for the hike through Tongass National Forest. After mounting your bike, head into the lush rain forest of Southeast Alaska, which receives more than 200 inches (508 centimeters) of rain each year. Explore the flora and fauna of the area, including salmon filling the streams and deer roaming the forest. There’s even a chance to see porpoises, seals, sea lions, and even humpback whales from the beach on the way back to the port or your hotel.

Fantastic local tour. Walking through the rainforest after an E-bike ride was unique and a real treat. This is a beautiful part of the world; seeing it by bike and on foot is a great way to soak it all in. I really valued Danielle's local medicinal plant and funghi knowledge. I can't recommend this company highly enough. If you're in Ketchikan and have a 1/2 day to spare don't miss it.

We were picked up downtown and brought to well organized base camp to get rain gear, bikes, helmets. E bikes were in great condition and worked well for 5 mile bike ride to hike in a beautiful preserve. Guide was fun, enthusiastic and informative. Flora and waterfalls were beautiful! Bike ride back and beers and smoked salmon! Great trip. Devon runs a great outfit.

We were greeted at the airport and taken straight to the rain forest where we were treated to bears and magical beauty! This excursion was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip to Alaska!

Our guide was awesome (unfortunately I’m terrible with names, so I don’t remember his name). Communication was good. Meeting on the pier went as described which is a bonus. The eco bike part of the tour was fun, not
Overly strenuous. The rainforest hike was nice. The guide took his time, telling us about the trees and the mushrooms that we found. We saw salmon that had just started jumping up the river. Even saw a harbor seal at the mouth of the river. The guide showed us where we should look for bear, but we did not see any (which was probably for the best). Guide took his time and was very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would book again when back in ketchikan

Had a great excursion, riding e-bikes to a state park/forest and then a beautiful hike through a rain forest. The hike was highlighted by watching thousands of salmon spawning and watching a mother bear feasting on salmon while her cubs watched from a nearby tree. I highly recommend this trip.

We loved everything about this but especially loved the rain forest. Salmon were still swimming up stream, the beach was at low tide and the seagulls were having lunch. The forest has huge old trees and the guides were incredibly knowledgeable about the plants there.

Fun activity... bikes were great and hike was beautiful. Our guide was a little reserved and didn't share much... but she was knowledgeable. We had fun watching the salmon try to make it up the rapids! After, they had a wonderful fire with delicious snacks and drinks. All in all a good day!

My wife and I had an excellent experience today on the e-bike and rainforest tour. Our guide Danyel was excellent. They do provide you with rain pants and a rain jacket. I would recommend also wearing waterproof shoes. Prior to our bike ride we did see several humpback whales from the back deck. On the tour itself you ride the e-bike about 5 miles to literally the end of the road and then take a short hike through the rainforest. We saw bald eagles, seals, salmon going up a waterfall, as well as the whales we saw prior to the trip. It is as strenuous as you want to make the bike ride. You can use the electric motor on the bike the whole time or pedal the whole time. The hike is beautiful through a rainforest and to the shore.

We had an awesome day biking and hiking. The ebike was SO fun! On the hike we saw a Mama bear catching fish in the stream and her 2 babies watching her from a tree above. It was incredible. Our tour guide, Danielle, was wonderful. Highly recommend this tour!
