Sitka Alaska | Shore Excursions Tours
Sitka is located in Alaska’s panhandle on Baranof Island southeast of Juneau; it attracts cruise ships as well as Alaska ferry passengers traveling the ever-popular inside passage. One of the most prominent cities during Russian rule of Alaska, Sitka today still bares rich history with its Russian architecture; most noticeable being Saint Michael’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral to the Russian Bisphop’s House.
Sitka’s history and current native cultures brings visitors a wealth of opportunities to explore for a day and more.
With views of island-studded waters and stately spruce forests reaching to the water’s edge, Sitka is considered Alaska’s most beautiful seaside town.
Also home of the Tlinglit Indians, who celebrate its culture with its colourful artefacts spread around town to the Sitka National Historical Park; this scenic 107 acre park preserves and interprets the site of a Tlingit Indian Fort and the battle fought between the Russians and the Tlingits in 1804. Like any other seaside town of Alaska, Sitka offers visitors a wide range of water-based adventures from kayaking to wildlife viewing cruises and fishing trips.
