What to expect and what not to expect with this Ketchikan shore excursion

Your Ketchikan Ebike & HIke tour begins with transport from downtown near the cruise ship docks to the north side of town near Clover Pass. Your local and professional guides go over safety and show you the ropes before you gear up and practice on the ebikes. Then, it's time to head out on the "Road to Nowhere", which takes you to the end of the island's paved road. Here, you'll set out on the maintained trail through the rainforest for a stunning hike alongside a stream and waterfall. For guests traveling here in late August-September, enjoy a fascinating sight of salmon jumping in the stream during the annual salmon run.

We can arrange pickup at hotels north of Ketchikan with advance notice. Of course, you'll receive detailed meeting instructions and planning information in a confirmation email upon booking.

Q:What if it rains? Do the trips get canceled?
