Sitka Vacations

Sitka rests on the seaward edge of Alaska’s Inside Passage. Established in 1799 by the Russians, it wasn’t until 1867 that ownership switched to the States. Tourism is driven mostly from outdoor adventures and natural parks. Fishing is also a big draw, as the area offers plenty of delicious fish to catch.

Sitka Sound offers opportunities to see wildlife by kayak in very calm waters. The town has a sense of community. Sitka's Fortress of the Bear (bear sanctuary) and the Alaska Raptor Center (which rescues and rehabilitates eagles and other birds) offer year round inexpensive wildlife viewing opportunities.

Sitka is a funny place because it is a seasonal town. Like a water-park or something, it is only really open during the summer. Apparently they board up the shops and taverns when the snow starts and most people leave. So if you're in the area during summer, stop by this cowboy town!

Sitka is a beautiful little town on the inside passage, with great hiking in the mountains that surround the town.
