Chill out in Valdez amongst the beauty of the many nearby glaciers, which can be explored independently or on guided tours.
Operators open for business:
• Anadyr Adventures guides guests right up to the Valdez and Shoup glaciers in inflatable kayaks.
• LuLu Belle Glacier and Wildlife Cruises brings guests close to Columbia Glacier, the second-largest tidewater glacier in North America.
• For a quick hike, head to majestic Worthington Glacier, which is one of the most accessible glaciers in Alaska.
• We also recommend checking out Valdez Glacier Campground to camp in the Chugach Mountains near a waterfall from glacial run-off.
