Create an itinerary including Alaska Raptor Center
Working to protect and rehabilitate the state's many species of predatory birds, Alaska Raptor Center is one of the most extensive organizations of its kind in the country. The facility is set on nearly 7 ha (17 acres) of forest and is home to birds of prey, some of whom will be rehabilitated and eventually released into the wild and some of whom are permanent residents due to their injuries. One of the center's crowning features is its massive flight training center, an enclosed outdoor area where recovering eagles can practice the hunting, landing, and flight skills that may have degraded during their incapacitation. Be sure to watch the birds in action from the viewing corridor. Add Alaska Raptor Center to your Sitka travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Sitka holiday planner.

  • Very nice center, staff are very knowledgeable and polite. It is amazing to be that close to bald eagles and other falcons and owls. I also LOVE the nature trail they have on site. So beautiful. It does not take too long to visit the center, the trail will take you a while. Either way make sure to bring your camera and sense of discovery.
  • This facility has a great mission and it's very interesting to visit and learn about the eagles, owls, and hawks being rehabilitated there. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. In a great natural setting, and even has a short hiking loop through the forest next to a small river.
