Add To Plan

Discover Sitka's fascinating history and natural beauty on foot during this scenic walking tour of the city, and a nature walk at the Sitka National Historical Park.

Depart the pier for a scenic motorcoach tour enroute to the Alaska Raptor Center. At the Raptor Center, you will encounter the swamp-like muskeg soil and alpine meadow where most of Alaska's bird, plant and wild berries thrive.

You will then explore and photograph the Raptor Center's open bird habitat and new Eagle Flight Center, home to bald eagles, owls, hawks and other birds of prey. During your visit, the staff will explain the Raptor Center's mission and answer questions.

Next, you will begin your guided walk into Sitka National Historical Park, where walking trails lined with authentic totem poles will guide you through the lush Tongass National Forest. As you cross the bridge at Indian River where salmon spawn in the late-summer, you will learn about the rain forest ecosystem, and local plant and animal life.

You will continue to walk along the harbor's shoreline to visit St. Michael's Russian Orthodox Cathedral and the Russian Bishop's House. However, a visit inside the Bishop's House is not included in the walk. Along the way, you will see many Victorian-style homes and ornate churches before passing Sheldon Jackson College, home to James Michener during the writing of his book, Alaska.

Your tour will conclude with a transfer back to the pier. If you wish to explore more of Sitka, you can choose to stay downtown and take a free shuttle back to the pier later.

Please note: The tour involves 3 miles of walking over uneven ground, trails and stairways at a steady pace. Guests are advised to dress warmly in layers, and wear sturdy closed-toe walking shoes. An admission ticket will be provided to visit St. Michael's Cathedral on your own after the tour. The order of sites visited may be reversed.
