Looking to travel somewhere adventurous this summer? There’s no place better than Valdez. Located on Prince William Sound, Valdez offers unbeatable fun on land and sea for outdoor enthusiasts. Travelers can traverse miles of hikes near mountain passes, and the city is also a jumping-off point for glacier exploration.
• Worthington Glacier is just about 30 miles outside of town and is even wheelchair accessible.
• For an easy hike try Mineral Creek Trail which offers views of picturesque waterfalls. The trail ends at an old mill.
• Kayaking or rafting near icebergs is easy with so much of “the Sound” to explore.
