How long to stay in Kake depends on what you like to do. Most visitors enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking and getting to know this small, authentic Tlingit village. Stay at least two days to get a sense of the community. Stay 3 or more and you’ll begin to understand why people have lived here thousands of years. Nestled in the Tongass National Forest, the views are spectacular, wildlife abounds and the people live a quiet rural Alaska lifestyle that is deeply connected to the land. What you will find during your time in Kake is a fluid, easy-going community, quite a different experience than the neatly-wrapped tourist excursions offered in more developed communities.
