Alaska Raptor Center and Walking tour
Your Tour begins at the Alaska Raptor Center where you will encounter the swamp-like muskeg soil and alpine meadow where most of Alaska’s bird, plant and wild berries thrive. You will then explore and photograph the Raptor Center’s open bird habitat and Eagle Flight Center, home to bald eagles, owls, hawks and other birds of prey.
Next, you will begin you guided walk in Sitka National Historical Park, where walking trails lined with authentic totem poles will guide you through the lush Tongass National Forest. Then, continue to walk along the harbors’ shoreline to visit St. Michael’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral. If you wish to explore more of Sitka, you can choose to stay downtown and take a free shuttle back to the pier later.
