Located in the forested mountains of Herring Cove in Ketchikan, the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary borders the magnificent Tongass National Rainforest. Guests enjoy walking through the rainforest, leaning about the plants and trees surrounding them, and exploring the estuary over the boardwalk where a variety of wildlife lingers during the salmon season. Guests can feed and interact with the reindeer that call the sanctuary home, visit the Old Sawmill, and view exhibits at the Interpretive Center.
