Overview

Get all your rowdy friends together and join in the Alaskan axe-tion in this amazing competition of skill and strength. The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show reflects upon southeast Alaska’s rich logging history and comes to life with thrilling displays of strength and agility. These world champion athletes wearing spiked boots & hard hats compete in 12 athletic events that utilize seven-pound axes, six-foot razor sharp saws, tree climbing gaffs, and souped up chainsaws. Your cheers will turn to roars of excitement as axes fly through the air, men free fall from tall trees, and then run atop spinning logs floating in the water. The show is held in a covered, heated, and cushioned grandstand that includes a rustic lodge gift shop and full concession. This will be one hour of action, excitement, and laughs that is unique to all of Alaska.

It was nice to just kick back and relax and be entertained. Yes, the jokes were silly and campy but we had fun. The guys in the show worked really hard and posed for pictures after.

We saw this in the rain, they have a covered seating area with heaters. These guys and gals are amazing athletes. In the rain just makes it more difficult but they didn't miss a beat.

We loved the show! Lots of fun with a mock battle between the American and Canadian teams. It's amazing to see all the stunts. Good time!

We visited whilst visiting the port from our cruise. It's great fun for all! We enjoyed it and we are grown ups! They get the kids involved and it's very interactive!

My husband and I took our two young sons to this while in Ketchikan.... they loved it. I loved that it was covered and heated because it was pouring down rain (which isn't unusual I hear). They have a gift shop to be in until...More

Want to learn about being a lumberjack? Well this shop is for you. This is a very entertaining and well timed show. The people work through an entertaining and educational show in about one hour. Well worth the cost.

It was rainy so we stopped here for show out of the rain. I didn't have any expectations but this exceeded them. Cheesy, fun, and truly a competitive sport. Who knew lumberjacks say yo ho too.

I'll admit I thought this was going to be cheesy, but booked it anyway because I thought the kids would like it. I ended up enjoying it just as much as they did. They did a great job of showing traditional lumberjack competition events and...More

I think $37 adult but the ships try to get you to buy on board saying they would be sold out if you wait. This might be the case in high season but this time of the year I would risk it, it’s not very far from where the ship... More

There are typically at least 2 shows per day/very busy when cruise ships are in town though, but worth your time.
