Ketchikan, on the southwest side of Revillagigedo Island, grew up around salmon canneries and sawmills. Ketchikan’s name supposedly comes from the native term ‘Katch Kanna’, which roughly translates as ‘spread wings of a thundering eagle’. At one time Ketchikan was proclaimed the ‘Salmon Capital of the World’. An outstanding collection of totem poles make a visit to Ketchikan essential for anyone interested in Native art. Travellers flock to Ketchikan for their first look at the North Country, and are rarely disappointed.
In 1880, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris were prospecting for gold with the help of Indian guides. Here they discovered nuggets ‘as large as beans’ at the mouth of the aptly named Gold Creek. Out of their discoveries came three of the largest gold digs in the world where more than $150 million in gold was mined. Juneau’s surrounding beauty and natural wonders have attracted cruise ship travellers for over a century, with steamship companies bringing tourists here since the early 1880s.
Skagua, as it is known by the Tlingit, means ‘windy place’. Skagway, a place of many names and much history, is the northern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway. It was known to thousands of hopeful gold rushers as the gateway to the goldfields. Skagway retains the flavour of the gold rush era and the character of such colourful inhabitants as Soapy Smith ‘King of the Frontier Con Men’, especially on Broadway with its false-front buildings, and in the Trail of ‘98 Museum with its outstanding collection of gold fever memorabilia.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah)
Discover the frontier town of Icy Strait surrounded by nature in its unspoiled glory. Pine trees as tall as skyscrapers, humpback whales, eagles, wild salmon, black bears and more, form the harmonious tapestry of life in this Alaskan hinterland. Visit the Native Theater and Heritage Center to see Tlinglit tribal members enacting their history through song and dance. Also worthy of attention are the elaborately carved totem poles. Stroll over to the Cannery Museum and find out how this staple of the Alaskan diet is processed. Shop for locally made preserves, jewellery, wooden carvings, clothing, and bath products. Take a walk along the well-marked nature trail to Hoonah.
