Girdwood, tucked into a valley within the Chugach Mountains, has the distinction of being Alaska’s only resort town with plenty to offer year round. Hemmed in by seven glaciers, it offers an idyllic escape just an hour’s drive from Anchorage. Guided hikes and aerial tours allow you to discover the area’s glaciers while kayaking is ideal for enjoying the vistas from the water. The tram ride to the top of Mount Alyeska offers dramatic views of the spectacular landscape. Mountain biking, rock climbing, and paragliding await active travelers. For visitors in quest of an adrenaline rush from the ultimate Alaskan experience, dog sledding is a must! Wildlife spotting opportunities abound at the conservation center set on the outskirts of town. Watch the town come to life with music, dance, and craft displays during the annual spring and summer festivals. The onset of winter brings with it world-class opportunities for skiing and snowboarding.
