Valdez and McCarthy
Deep in the heart of Prince William Sound and surrounded by some of the world’s tallest coastal mountains is Valdez, set in a remarkably picturesque setting. The heart of Valdez, like so many coastal towns in Alaska, is its small boat harbour clustered along its waterfront. From there, the town stretches back toward the mountains and Mineral Creek Canyon. Egan Drive, Valdez’s equivalent to Main Street offers a vast choice of restaurants, shops and museums. Everything you came to see & do in Alaska all in one place whether you find yourself on land or sea. Mountains, glaciers wildlife, fishing, history and tours.
Imagine being near the face of calving glaciers, watching huge chunks of ice fall into the ocean as the rumbling crack of breaking ice fills the air. Head out fishing for giant halibut and salmon or simply kayak among icebergs and seals or take a tour and watch the whales. Valdez is also the premier destination for winter sports in Alaska. Challenge yourself on the Chugach Mountains. Experience heli-skiing, snowcat skiing, kite skiing, snowboarding. Unmatched beauty, terrain and snowfall like no other in the world.
