Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Visiting Sitka was wonderful. you could walk to everything. We had a relaxing day walking to the NHP and within the City. Nice to get off the cruise ship and walk around.

    This was a great trip and I would recommend a visit. We were on part of a tour and were rushed to the next stop. I would have liked to have spent a good few hours here so would recommend that you check how long the stop is here if you are on a tour.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the native artifacts, clothing and hunting implements that are very thoughtfully displayed. The drawers contain a wealth of items that enhance the experience.

    It surprised me how much I enjoyed our visit as we had already seen wild bears. However, this is such a wonderful sanctuary for the bears. It's a great opportunity to watch them up close and learning about the story of why they had to be rescued.

    This is an excellent church with a ton of history about the town and religion. If you have 30 minutes and the church is open, stop in. Entrance fee is a donation.

    Such a great gem in town! Considering admission is free, it's even better! The tours are extensive and leave every 30 minutes. The tour guide, Matt Booth, was so knowledgeable and friendly. It was obvious he was invested in the history he was presenting. Everyone visiting town should visit this attraction and learn a little more about this town's rich history.

    Absolutely STUNNING! Hiking in Sitka was my favorite part of our trip to Alaska. And our tour guide made it even better. I highly recommend this hike!

    To get to the trailhead you have to drive about six miles up Harbor Mt Road, just off Halibut Point Road. The road is a one lane gravel road with lots of switchbacks and tight turns. Drive slow and easy and you’ll be fine. The hike is 2.5 miles to a shelter, and is up and down, than up and down and than up one more time. The views are amazing on a clear day. When we went up the clouds rolled in, it started to drizzle and then the sun came out. Great hike, a bit more challenging than expected

    Very interesting visit, the fish were climbing the fish ladders by the many thousands! We learned about the whole cycle of a salmons lifespan from eggs to ultimate end of life. It was fascinating and our guide was great. Highly recommend a visit when the fish are running.

    Sitka has a relaxing sidewalk stroll that leads to a playground, a coastal nature area to see wild eagles and totem park. This area was just steps from the ship , easy to walk to. There are holding trails at totem park. I enjoyed the town and shopping was not as crowded as other towns. The waterfalls were beautiful. There were also really cute churches with open doors.

    I'm not exactly sure I'm placing this review at the right spot, but basically at the current end of the road north (the road is being expanded as I right this but isn't open yet) there is a nice boardwalk around the estuary and then on the ocean side of the highway there is a few campsites and the Mosquito Cove trailhead. I highly recommend this hike! It's about 1.5 miles total if you do the loop, and there is a bit of up and down so take that into consideration, but if you're in decent shape you should be fine. There is usually posted notices of bear activity in the area, so a can of bear spray should probably be carried as a precaution. But the forest is amazing and the trail if well maintained.
