Explore the historical highlights and heritage of Sitka, a former "Russian" capital city, on a unique, fully-narrated sightseeing journey that includes a tour through the Sitka National Park and folk dancing presentation. Your day begins with a scenic motor coach ride along Sitka’s picturesque roadways en route to the Sitka National Historical Park, where the 1804 "Battle of Alaska", was fought. The park hosts totem lined trails, cultural exhibits, and carving rooms where native Alaskan artisans demonstrate their totemic art form. Here, you’ll have the option to walk along the forest trail, view the exhibits, or interact with the artists.  

Your next stop will be at Centennial Hall, where you’ll be treated to a special performance by the Alaska Story Tellers. Watch Alaska’s past heritage come alive through narration, music, song, and dance.  Following the performance, your tour will end downtown where you can take a short walk to St. Michael's Cathedral, and admire original Icon Artwork dating back to the early 16th Century.
