Explore a side of Sitka rarely experienced by visitors during this unique and exhilarating cycling tour and forest walk. This tour has been recommended by Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society based on its philosophy that guided experiences in nature should inspire people, young and old, to act responsibly for the protection of our planet's vital ecosystems.
From the pier, you are transported by motor coach to the south-end of Sitka's road system. After receiving your safety and riding instructions, you will don your helmet and begin your bicycling adventure in Sitka. As you breathe in the crisp, clean outdoor air, your guides will lead you on a bike tour and inform you about Sitka's local history, current events and natural beauty. En route, you will also take in spectacular views and photo opportunities of the Pacific Ocean, Silver Bay and the mountainous backdrop.
This tour also includes a hike where you can enjoy the temperate rainforest, the beautiful landscape, and a waterfall. The hike is approximately 1 – 2 miles, depending on the pace set by the group. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be transferred back to the pier.
