Visit Sitka

Dave Morgan

Alaska's Most Charismatic City! Nestled against lush, green-forested mountains, Sitka's Russian Orthodox Cathedral spires rise above this surprisingly cosmopolitan town perched on the "outside" of Alaska's Inside Passage. With a delightful fusion of art, culture and wilderness; Sitka promises more than just big nature and frontier activities although those abound as well. Originally a Tlingit settlement, locals still live a modern mix of Alaska Native, Russian and American heritage while enjoying performing and visual arts, native culture, outdoor recreation and maritime adventures including fishing, kayaking, diving and surfing. Direct 2-hour flights from Anchorage and Seattle, fast-ferry services, historical places, vibrant fine arts scene, renowned classical music festival, a National Park, SE Alaska's "best catch" salmon and halibut fishing, top native museum Sheldon Jackson, ocean kayaking, surfing, a raptor rescue center and bear refuge, small/micro cruising, Russian American capital, boutique shopping, accessible wildlife, craft food scene, locavore restaurants...there really is no end in sight when art meets wild Alaska.
