Visit Valdez, a little town on Alaska’s southern coast, nestled on the shores of a deep-water fjord called Port Valdez. Surrounded by the protected waters of Prince William Sound and the coastal peaks of the Chugach Mountains, Valdez boasts stunning natural scenery. As a haven for outdoor adventures, Valdez offers whitewater rafting on the Lowe River, kayaking amid icebergs, backcountry hiking to mine ruins, and tours to calving glaciers. Nearby, the dramatic Keystone Canyon features several waterfalls while the Columbia Glacier showcases tidewater glacial cycles. Winters are the perfect time for heli-skiing and ice climbing excursions in the region. Wildlife lovers will be delighted by a sheer abundance of animals, from seals and whales, to bears, eagles, and moose making regular appearances around Valdez. Leisure activities here include picnics at Ruth Pond, trips to the Valdez Duck Flats ecosystem, and admiring impressive wood carvings about town. Egan Drive in downtown is the social hub with eateries and shopping, while several museums trace the fascinating history of Valdez.
