About Sitka and Places to Visit
Sitka is located on the outer coast of Alaska’s Inside Passage. Throughout Sitka, visitors have many opportunities to learn about Alaska’s rich cultural history and the area’s wildlife including humpback whales, otters and one of the largest populations of bald eagles in the United States.
Hikers enjoy Sitka National Historical Park’s Totem Trail, a trail that loops through a dense rainforest. Along the trail, hikers can stop and learn about the cultural significance of more than a dozen totem poles carved by Tlingit and Haida artists. Families enjoy the Sitka Sound Science Center’s educational touch tanks with live sea urchins, sea anemones and starfishes that inhabit the coastal waters of Sitka. An 800-gallon saltwater tank is also a key feature of this popular museum.
Visitors interested in learning about Sitka’s cultural history also enjoy The Sheldon Jackson Museum’s collection of Alaska Native ethnographic material, organized by the Sitka Fine Arts Camp, an organization that provides opportunities in arts, culture and recreation in an inspirational environment.
Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport (SIT) is located two miles west of downtown Sitka. Empty legs and transient aircraft are very popular in the region.
