When you fly to Sitka, you ll embark on an adventure to one of Alaska's most beautiful cities, which proves that the Great White North offers as much natural beauty and cultural relevance as any tropical resort. History buffs and wilderness lovers will find plenty to love in this secluded destination.
Sitka's history is rich and varied, with indigenous tribes, Russian colonization and America all making their mark. Experience all these pieces of history by going on a tribal tour, visiting St. Michael's Russian Orthodox Cathedral and taking a trip to Castle Hill.
Then see the natural riches of the area with a hike through Sitka National Historic Park. Fortress of the Bear and the Alaska Raptor Center allow you to see some of Sitka's most fearsome predators up close.
You can reach the city from Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport (SIT) via taxi or shuttle bus. Most of downtown Sitka can be accessed on foot or on bike.
Every October sees Sitka taking a trip to the past with Alaska Day, where citizens dress in the style of the 1900s and parades and events celebrate Alaska's introduction as a US state.
Sitka experiences a pleasantly cool climate year round. Summer highs average in the lower 60s while winter lows sink into the lower 30s.
