Alaska Canopy Adventures. Featuring a series of zip-lines, aerial boardwalks, and suspension bridges, canopy tours provide an up-close view of the coastal forests. At Alaska Canopy Adventures—a course at the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary, 8.4 miles south of town—the longest of the tour's eight zip-lines stretches more than 800 feet, and whisks you along some 130 feet off the ground. Ketchikan's version of this fast-growing outdoor activity often includes Alaskan wildlife viewing—black bears and eagles are frequently spotted from on high.
