Ketchikan Vacations

Ketchikan, Alaska, is the Salmon Capital of the World, but you don't have to enjoy fishing to have a delightful time in this island city surrounded by the Tongass National Forest. Ketchikan vacation packages are just as great an option for families, outdoor adventurers, and anyone who loves wildlife. Whether your vacation in Ketchikan is a summer adventure or you're braving Alaska's frozen landscape in winter, you'll never be bored exploring this spectacular destination.

Major Attractions

Wander the streets of Ketchikan and see numerous totem poles, which are part of the largest collection of totem poles in the world. You can see even more fine examples of the art form at the Totem Heritage Center, Totem Bight State Park, and other city parks. Stop in at the Tongass Historical Museum and Discovery Center to learn about the centuries-old cultures of the region's native communities. One of Ketchikan's top attractions is Misty Fiords National Monument, a wilderness area within the forest featuring glacier-carved valleys, ocean inlets, and high plateaus to explore on foot or by kayak. You can take a boat cruise to the monument, or book an aerial tour to view it from above. Car rentals in Ketchikan mean you can drive down the Tongass Highway to rural coastal villages or take the ferry to Prince of Wales Island, a huge, unspoiled wilderness and renowned spot for sport fishing.

Recurring Festivals and Events

Book your Ketchikan vacation at the end of May and you'll catch the local spectacle of the Annual King Salmon Derby. This event, held over three weekends, has been a highlight of the local events calendar since the 1940s. Ketchikan celebrates Independence Day with a parade, a duck race, fireworks, and plenty of food vendors and game booths. The Blueberry Arts Festival is another family-fun annual event in summer.
