Southeast Alaska, or the Alaska Panhandle, is a
narrow strip of coastal islands and mountains
that stretches more than 500 miles along the
Pacific Ocean. It is home to Alaskas capital

for Russian America, in the town of Sitka.
Famed for its wildlife, lush climate,
spectacular views, and the protected seaway known
as the inside passage.
