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.

The jokes aren’t so good but the show is great. Loved seeing what they can do with an axe and saw. The pole climb in the rain was impressive but I could have done without the carving a rabbit (chair) thing.

Great show. Lots of funny satire and great work by all involved. We had 3 small kids and they were all excited afterward.

We had relatively low expectations of a Lumberjack Show and were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it was corny at times, but fun, funny, and great athletic competition. We enjoyed it as much as our grandkids. There were two teams of lumberjacks and we were assigned to...More

Not professionals but very fun and worth seeing. We did the ax throwing after and it was a blast! Good looking men that play to the crowd and are good at what they do. Great time for all ages

We went on this excursion for the crab meal! The lumberjack show was fun though. The crab was so fresh and delicious! It was a great way to end our shore excursions on our Holland America Line cruise.

It was different to what I was expecting, good idea to split it into teams but seems like the lumberjacks were acting more then competing though. But very entertaining and very skilled acts and it was great to see some of these events.

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.
