This Magical Rainforest Sanctuary In Alaska Looks Like Something Out Of A Dream
Ketchikan, the lush and abundant island in Southeast Alaska, is home to miles and miles of undeveloped rainforest area on the edges of the small town. The Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary lies eight road miles outside of downtown, but feels a million miles away. Visit this incredible attraction to see the Sitka Spruce shooting straight up to the sky while the animals of the Alaskan rainforest romp around them. Feast your eyes at the estuary for bald eagle viewing, a bear viewing platform, and a boardwalk to explore the pristine rainforest. You’ll never forget your adventure at the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary.
Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary is located at 116 Wood Rd., Ketchikan, Alaska. See an interactive map here.
