Sitka is settled on Baranof Island, located on the outer coast of the Inside Passage and 132 nautical miles west of Juneau. Nestled peacefully in the Tongass National Forest, Sitka proudly beckons those who seek out-of-the-ordinary, majestic and lush places. Explore the myriad of islands and bays of Sitka Sound for a chance to spot wildlife and view spectacular scenery. An extinct volcano, Mount Edgecumbe, rises 3,200 feet above the community and adds to the beauty of this seaside town.

Sitka's hallmark is its tenure and devotion to a culturally diverse past with a distinctive character of a place that has been settled for thousands of years with a unique blend of Tlingit culture and Russian history. St. Michael's Cathedral is an excellent example of the Russian architecture that can still be found throughout Alaska. Visit for more information on available activities and accommodations.
