More Than You Can Imagine…
Some very special places on earth seem to be forged for the curious and adventurous souls who demand diversity and grandeur in their travels. For those who venture for out-of-the-ordinary, majestic and lush places, Sitka proudly beckons. For the seekers of treasures, natural, cultural and historical, Sitka is that treasure island.
With views of island-studded waters and stately spruce forests reaching to the water's edge, Sitka is considered Alaska's most beautiful seaside town. Yet Sitka's hallmark is its tenure and devotion to a culturally diverse past. In a young state whose history is filled with tales of boom towns and ghost towns, Sitka has the distinctive character of a place that has been settled for thousands of years. These ancient lands, home to the Tlingit Indians, celebrated their life and culture long before Russians or Americans walked on the rocky shores and today Tlingit living culture is deeply rooted in this small seaside city.
Visitors will always find the bounty they are looking for, which is inseparable from the people. It is Sitka's citizens who will make you feel at home, who will appease your curiosity, and give you cause to remember your journey to a real treasure island.
