Perched on the open Pacific Ocean, surrounded by mountains and rich in history, Sitka is a treat for outdoor enthusiasts and culture seekers alike. The Tlingit people have called Sitka home for thousands of years. Russian settlers, led by Alexander Baranov (for whom Sitka’s Banarof Island is named) occupied Sitka in the early 1800s and established it as the capital of Russian America. St. Michael’s Cathe
