Buckle up for this deep woods off-road ATV adventure.
Sit back, strap yourself in, and hit the accelerator for the off-road adventure of a lifetime! You’ll cruise mountain trails through a harvested area of timber. This is the perfect route to your off-road ride. One where you’ll stop and take in spectacular views of the Tongass National Forest, Behm Canal and Alaska’s fabled Inside Passage.
Here’s how your Kart ATV adventure will roll along.
Learn about the history, culture and economy of Ketchikan during a motor coach drive to your starting point. Then you’ll be prepped to take on the rugged Alaskan wilderness from the driver’s seat of a specially designed off-road adventure kart. Highly trained and experienced guides at the Adventure Kart base camp will give you a safety briefing and help you gear up for the exciting, one-and-a-half-hour guided trek. You’ll feel the rush of adrenaline right away when you set out in a custom designed Tomcar that puts your driving ability to the test.
Get Dirty and adventure into Alaska’s wild side.
You and your passenger will set off in a caravan of karts, with your guide in the lead ATV. You’ll be exploring the remote back country of the Tongass National Forest along several miles of improved forest trail. A comfortable pace is maintained as you thread your way through mountainous roads, around steep curves, on the climb to the awe-inspiring views.
Stops will be made along the way to soak up the grandeur and beauty of this lush green land. Nice time for a snack and drink, and then drivers and passengers can switch positions for the return trip. Be on the lookout for wildlife along the way. Eagles, deer or bears are often seen and heard!

Karts accommodate two people and are not recommended for anyone with neck or back problems or expectant mothers. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The guided tour with Matt was great. It was short and sweet and well organized. The weather was gorgeous but the view was a bit fogged in. The waterfall stop was a nice touch. My favorite part was Shadow, the friendly shop dog.
Good times 4×4’ing in Ketchikan
You'll want to hit all potholes on these 4x4's with their heavy duty suspension. Although we did not go through any waters (slight drought happening) we did have a wonderful ride. Stops for photo opportunities and sampling the wild berries was an added experience. You won't regret the memories you made on this trip.
Better than I expected!
I'm not a big off-roading kind of girl. This was a port adventure my 10 year old son and husband picked. More fun than I could have imagined. We had a beautiful day. I hit every bump (as they recommended) and had a great time! Highly recommend you bring clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Fun tour guides. We even got to see a black bear (luckily far enough away from us).
