About Sitka National Historical Park Tours

The Sitka National Historical Park is a must-see destination. Its 113 acres of coastal rainforest is rich with Tlingit cultural history. While there, you can learn about Southeast Alaska Native history, view 20 totem poles, check out the cultural center where you can watch Tlingit artists at work, and enjoy the visitor center, which was modeled after a traditional clan house. From the arched bridge, you can view salmon on the Indian River.


Some of our Sitka tours pair a visit to the Sitka National Historic Park with visits to the Fortress of the Bear and the Alaska Raptor Center (which are other top Sitka destinations.)
