About Sitka

Sitka, on the waters of Alaska's Inside Passage, is undoubtedly Alaska's most beautiful seaside town. Located at the heart of the world’s largest temperate rainforest – the Tongass National Forest – it is surrounded by island-studded waters, stately spruce forests, jagged mountains and a towering volcano.

Sitka’s rich history is a unique blend of Tlingit culture and Russian heritage, which combines comfortably with the Alaskan wilderness to provide a diverse and unequalled experience. Tlingit Indians lived around Sitka for centuries before the Russians arrived, and in 1867 Sitka was the location for the transfer ceremony, for the Russian sale of Alaska to the US – for $7.2 million – less than 2 cents per acre!

Due to its mild climate, rich habitat and low human population, Sitka is a great place to view wildlife. The nearby waters are very picturesque and not only are they popular feeding grounds for humpback whales, they are also perfect for kayaking adventures as well as world-class salmon and halibut fishing. 

Back in town you’ll find fact filled museums, hand-carved totems and Saint Michael's onion-domed Cathedral, which houses an important collection of Russian Orthodox art and treasures. The Raptor Center is a veterinary project, which rehabilitates of birds of prey, but it also showcases these birds in action – eagles in flight are simply majestic.
