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.

We heard about this event from a friend who loved it. But, we felt the event was very staged, all of the humor was forced, the one side winning and then the other to continue to tie, the competitions where you could tell one side...More

Very entertaining and fun for all. The performers were very animated and fun to watch. They even posed for pictures after the show and my wife won a signed postcard from them.

An amazing show of the art of timber sports. If you just yawned, you are missing out on an experience never to be repeated. It isn’t your average wood chopping event at your local show. There’s skill, lots of humour, loads of friendly rivalry between...More

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