The basics

While Totem Bight State Historical Park welcomes visitors to explore independently, plan to visit with a guide who can offer context and tell some of the stories behind the totems. Aside from admiring the 14 totem poles, visitors can step inside the Clan House to learn more about family life for the area’s indigenous tribes. A viewing deck offers the chance to spot wildlife along the Tongass Narrows.

Travelers can combine a tour of the park with some sightseeing around Ketchikan, a nature walk through the Alaskan rainforest to learn more about the indigenous trees and plants of Tongass National Forest, or an excursion to the historic Guard Island Lighthouse.

Ketchikan for History Buffs
