Description

As the first and only electric-assist bicycle tour in Southeast Alaska, we're excited for you to join us on an easy, enjoyable ride on the "road to nowhere". The end of our Island's paved road system . This road dead ends at the edge of the dense Tongass National Forest, an extensive wilderness where you will then take an enjoyable, guided hike along a well maintained trail beside an active salmon spawning stream. The hiking features calm waters, rapids and a waterfall along it's path as well as stunning beach views before returning to your E-bikes to cycle back to the Marina where it all began. All our tours provide round trip transportation from your cruise ship/hotel and excellent gear is provided for all your weather and cycling needs.

After a dozen years of running kayak tours in Ketchikan, we're consistently surprised at the number of visitors who never set foot in the Rain Forest. Our E-Bike tour originated from a desire to get more visitors into this amazing rain forest. With almost 200 inches of rain annually, there really is no place as lush and unique as Southeast Alaska. The forest floor is bountiful with all kinds of Flora and Fauna and depending on the time of season its not unusual to see deer or or salmon swimming up stream.

Port times for most folks are very limited, so we wanted to maximize your time by combining multiple activities on this tour. Plus we wanted to offer more than just a hiking tour anyway. So we made the trip to the trailhead half the adventure in itself. And how could we not stop along the shoreline of the sea along the way back? It's not unheard of to see Porpoises, Seals and Sea Lions or sometimes Humpbacks from the beach.

Electric assist bicycles are bicycles. You pedal them and shift gears like any bike. They are silent in operation and are not classified as a motorized vehicle. However, when you want a little boost in your ride just twist the half throttle and you'll quickly see why e-bikes are so much fun to ride. These bikes are powerful and seriously cool. We can cover more distance using e-bikes than conventional bicycles, you don't have to worry about keeping up, and they are the perfect way to get just the amount of exercise you're after. They are very accommodating with a step-through frame so you don't have to throw a leg over the bike to get on and off. We recharge our e-bikes with hydro power so they are a clean source of fun. Our tour max's out at 6 people, so no chance of getting lost in the crowd.

Get out of town with us on your visit to Ketchikan this summer!
