Add To Plan

Experience the joys of the natural world in a second-growth forest and discover the heritage of the Tlingit Indians through traditional tribal dancing.

Boarding your covered-wheel tram at Icy Strait Point, you will set-off for a trek through lush forest in the sprawling 17-million-acre Tongass National Forest. The towering stands of virgin spruce and hemlock, which have never been logged, are a wonder to behold. The significance of the forest becomes even clearer when your guide describes in detail the delicate balance of its bio-diversity and fascinating geology. During the tram ride, which at times follows the shoreline of Icy Strait, you may spot Sitka Blacktail Deer or brown bear foraging. Another favorite sight is the massive bald eagle nest constructed of dead branches atop a spruce tree.

Upon returning to Icy Strait Point, you will gather at the Heritage Center Theater to watch the Tlingit Indians perform an inspiring tribal dance. The Tlingits have lived in this part of southeastern Alaska for thousands of years and their traditions run deep. They express them beautifully through interpretive songs, dance and storytelling. During the performance, the dancers are dressed in full regalia, including masks and headdresses. It's a wonderful way to absorb the rich history of the Tlingits and appreciate their culture on an even deeper level.

At the conclusion of the performance, you will transfer back to the pier.
