The Area

Ketchikan is the Gateway to Alaska

See the sights, enjoy the mountains and beaches, and stay a while. You’ll need plenty of time to see everything.

Misty Fjords National Monument

The spectacular Misty Fjords National Monument, lying just 22 miles east of Ketchikan, is a natural mosaic of sea cliffs, steep fjords and rock walls jutting 3,000 feet straight out of the ocean. Taking its name from the almost constant mist in the area, the monument is covered with thick rainforest that grows on nearly vertical slopes from sea level to mountaintops. Dramatic waterfalls plunge into the salt water through narrow clefts.
More than 150 annual inches of rain feed the lakes and streams that gush over granite boulders. Take your camera!

*Only accessible by boat or plane

Totem Bight State Park

Having no written language, totem poles were silent story-tellers for the Tlingit and Haida people who were once the only inhabitants of Ketchikan. See these amazing works of hand-hewn art, visit the clan house, and learn the symbolism of each creature on the totem poles. Fascinating!

Tongass National Forest

The nation’s largest national forest covers most of Southeast Alaska, surrounding the famous Inside Passage and offering opportunities to see bears, eagles, spawning salmon, and all the breathtaking views of the Alaskan wilderness. Hike the trails or take a dog-sled ride to Hubbard Glacier, stroll the boardwalks, and fish in the streams and ocean.
