About Sitka Alaska

Visit Sitka once and you will be overcome by the beauty of the forests of Spruce joining the seas edge dotted with islands of green forests. A visit to Alaska's most beautiful ocean front community will forever be etched in your memory. The history of Sitka Alaska is tied to the times of the Russian America Fur Company which was overseen by Alexander Baranof whose castle overlooks Sitka Sound.

Sitka's beauty is enhanced with rich wildlife and sea life populations joined with a mild marine climate. Whales, Sea Lions and Otters are seen as well as Puffins and Bald Eagles along with many more wild inhabitants of Sitka Sound. St. Lazaria National Wildlife Refuge is a great location for wildlife viewing.

Sitka lies at the heart of the largest temperate rain forest in the world, the Tongass National Forest. Enjoy the fresh outdoors on well-marked mountain trails. Take to the water for a picturesque boat trip or kayaking adventure among nearby islands or charter a boat to nearby fishing grounds to fish for world-class salmon and halibut.
