Escape the packed school bus tour offered by some cruise lines on this fun and adventurous tour in a new model, spacious 10 passenger van. Your local guide is a true Alaskan who really knows the land and the unique Alaskan lifestyle. Make the most of your trip to Sitka on this small group tour with a local guide who truly understands life in Alaska.

After driving down the town's main street, you will take in the sweeping view of downtown Sitka from the O'Connell Bridge as you explore Japonski (the Russian word for Japanese) Island's rich history and wildlife. Although wildlife sightings are not guaranteed, you will most likely see eagles, sea lions, otters, and various other animals during the tour.

Your small group tour continues with a scenic drive to Silver Bay, where your local guide will explain its rich history and be amazed by the scenery and photo opportunities.

Next, it's on to the "Fortress of the Bear." Here, you'll have the opportunity to witness the distinctive brown bear in a naturalized setting, while your local Alaskan guide will give you a thorough education on the species itself. The three-quarter acre habitat includes a large covered viewing area, where you will observe the bears in safety and comfort.

The last stop on your small group tour is the Sitka National Historical Park, also known as Totem Park. You will stand on a bridge over Indian River and learn about the salmon and their life cycle, then take a walk in the amazing old growth rain forest. Your Alaskan guide will tell you all about native culture as you view the totem art and scenery. Don't miss this exciting small group tour of Sitka!

We had a onderful time in this small tour in a brand new 10 passenger van. Intimate group with a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable and fun! She stopped to let us see and photograph eagles. The trip down through the rainforest to see the salmon spawning was great and the bear sanctuary was a highlight!

5 StarsSitka TourSeptember 20, 2018

Reviewer: Marcy
This was an excellent tour. Our guide Vivian is a native Tlingit, which made this tour even better, because of the wealth knowledge she provided of the local culture and history of Sitka, and shared interesting history of the Tlingit clan. We were able to see the salmon run, amazing! And the Bear rescue center, also amazing!

5 StarsA great introduction to SitkaSeptember 20, 2018

Reviewer: Willma Voss
Easy to make connections and get started with a van driver who grew up in Sitka. She introduced us to the local area while driving to the first stop, gave us time to take pictures, then on to the Preserve where she identified the flora, Sitka Spruce trees, called the squirrels by name as she showed us where they lived. We then went to the Bear rehab place and gave us time to watch them play while explaining their background. The small group allowed us freedom to move around without a crowd.
