Sitka Vacations

Sitka, a city spread over two islands in the Alexander Archipelago of Alaska, is a place of great natural beauty, historic landmarks, and an intriguing native culture. Sitka vacation packages appeal not only to outdoor adventurers who want to explore the surrounding spruce forests and pristine waterways, but also to anyone who appreciates the atmosphere of a rugged seaside town far from any distractions. Sitka is only accessible by boat or plane, but car rentals in Sitka make it easy to explore the city's sights on your own schedule.

Major Attractions

Learn about the culture and history of the Tlingit people who have inhabited the region for more than 500 years at Sitka National Historical Park, where you can view magnificent totem poles and visit the Sitka Cultural Center next door. St. Michael's Cathedral, a Russian Orthodox Church, is a gracious reminder of Sitka's Russian heritage. Among many tour options, you can take an ATV tour in the Tongass National Forest, a guided fishing trip, or a bike tour of downtown landmarks. Whale-watching and wildlife cruises offer the chance to see remarkable marine life, as well as viewing the city and its surrounding wilderness from a different perspective.

Recurring Festivals and Events

During Sitka vacations in summer, you can see traditional Tlingit dance performances and hear storytelling inside the Sheet'ka Kwaan Naa Kahidi cultural venue. Catch the annual Sitka Summer Music Festival, showcasing chamber music via concerts and social events. The Alaska Day celebration in October, honoring the transfer of Alaska to the United States from Russia, is a major city-wide event, lasting a full week and including a costume ball, parade, and ceremonies. The Native American Heritage Festival follows in November, along with the annual Sitka Whalefest, which features a marine-themed market and art show and special whale cruises.
