Duration: 2.75 hours; $89; So, you like to get wild? How about Alaska-wild? Begin your journey with an eight-mile coastal drive that offers plenty to see before you even arrive at the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary. Once at the private Herring Cove reserve, you'll set out into the forest with an experienced naturalist for an in-depth look at this stirring ecosystem. As you walk, you'll find yourself surrounded by surprisingly lush terrain: the dense woodland is populated by hemlock, spruce, and cedar, and forest floor is covered in moss and wildflowers. Your guide will take you to some of the most scenic spots, including prime areas for viewing native wildlife. This includes an elevated boardwalk running alongside a protected estuary overlooking wetlands that serve as the spawning grounds for the local salmon population, and feeding grounds for bears, seals, and bald eagles. Other wildlife you might see include black tailed deer, mink, and marten. After concluding the nature walk, you'll spend some time visiting the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company sawmill and the Alaska Raptor Center's aviary exhibits. You'll learn about raptors and even be able to photograph them up close. Then, you'll visit a master carver and watch as he turns a cedar log into a remarkable Native American totem pole.
