On this interpretive tour, a knowledgeable native will be your personal guide as you explore Baranof Island in a luxurious passenger coach or van. You will pass by many of Sitka’s historic sites, including Castle Hill Mt., the Pioneer Home, and St. Michael’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral. At the Sitka National Historical Park, follow your guide along a pathway where Totem poles impart the rich culture of the Tlingít. Step into the lush rainforest and see historic Indian River, one of Sitka’s many salmon spawning streams. Your guide will discuss totem significance, edible and medicinal plants, traditional uses of salmon, and rainforest ecology. You’ll also enjoy reserved seating at the Naa Kahídi Native Dance Performance, held inside a traditional-style Tlingít Clan House. As beautifully adorned dancers entertain you and the box drum resonates, you’ll listen to songs passed down through the generations. Finally, visit the Alaska Raptor Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing medical treatment for birds of prey.
