Discover first-hand the natural wonders of a wild southeast Alaskan rainforest. Departing from Icy Strait Point, you and your local guides will ride a wheeled, covered tram approximately two miles through an old growth rainforest and out along the shoreline where Chichagof Island meets the bountiful waters of Icy Strait. The road is bumpy in places. Your guides will describe the ecological and cultural significance of the forest's unique plants and animals, and how the island's Native Tlingit people are bound to its rich landscape. At the beachfront turn-around, you will have the option of exploring the rockiy beach on foot, within view of an established bald eagle nest. Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for eagles and other land and marine mammals that inhabit the area. Wear comfortable shoes if you plan to walk on the uneven terrain of the beach. Raincoats are recommended, and, don't forget your cameras and binoculars!
