Attend the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show

Travelers will be entertained with a ticket to the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show. This show is a staple of Ketchikan and brings guests a thrilling competition of skill and strength that highlight Southeast Alaska’s logging history.

These world-champion athletes are sure to impress all ages with seven-pound axes, six-foot, razor-sharp saws, tree climbing gaffs and more. The one-hour performance is packed with action as the lumberjacks compete to be on top. Audience members will be on the edge of their seats as they watch burly lumberjacks free fall from tall trees, scamper across logs floating in the water and show off their strength as they chop and saw through thick logs.

Get in on the “axe-tion” with a group of friends and try your own hand at the axe throwing competition. The lumberjacks meet up with participants after the show and demonstrate the art of the throw in a head-to-head battle. Don’t forget your flannel to look the part to fit in with this boisterous crowd.

The full show is offered 3-4 times daily, giving guests plenty of opportunities to add it to their schedule.
