River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

Things to do near Sitka, AK

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Sitka, along with a brief description:

♦ Sitka National Historical Park

There are many exciting opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors while learning all about history and culture when you visit Sitka National Historical Park. You can discover artifacts and historic sites, including Sitka’s iconic totem poles, photographs, and buildings like the Russian Bishop’s House (see below). Nature lovers can enjoy viewing glaciers, cloud-shrouded mountaintops, natural wildlife, and a wide variety of biodiversity.

♦ Mount Edgecumbe

Mount Edgecumbe is a dormant volcano, part of which is located in Sitka (the other part being Kruzof Island). According to history, the Tlingit people who once resided in this part of Alaska regarded this volcano as sacred. It also possesses some historical significance, as the Civilian Conversation Corps carved out a trail to the top as part of America’s New Deal program. Taking a hike on this breathtaking volcano is a great activity for true explorers to do before or after their cruise (keep in mind that this is an all-day hike in the deep wilderness.). Mount Edgecumbe is only accessible by boat, but it’s a great way to truly take in the nature surrounding Sitka.

♦ Russian Bishop’s House

The Russian Bishop’s House is a national landmark in Sitka that will bring visitors back in time to Russian America. During a tour of this former residence, you can learn about Russia’s’ cultural and educational influences on Sitka during the twentieth century, as well as admire the building’s Russian colonial architecture.
