Girdwood Travel Guide

If you've ever dreamed of spending an amazing time in Alaska where you can explore the northern nature, relax by the waters, and see the amazing marine life, then do not hesitate to visit Girdwood Alaska! This is without a doubt the perfect place for an off-the-beaten-path vacation. The resort town of Girdwood is a popular destination all year around but it is mostly visited for winter activities because it offers great winter sport amenities. There are lots of ski mountains, and during the short summers the area is amazing for hiking and exploring the bay. Until the 20th century Girdwood was a small, quiet place with few visitors. However, as soon as the Alyeska Ski Resort opened up it became a popular travel destination. Do not hesitate to visit this amazing resort town and have lots of fun exploring the snowy beauty of Alaska.

Things to Do in Girdwood

Many wonderful amenities await visitors at Girdwood. If you are a winter sport lover, then this is an excellent spot for you. The resort town offers a large variety of sporting activities that are available for rental. However, there is much more to do in Girdwood than just winter sport activities! Visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center which is a sanctuary dedicated to save the native wildlife of Alaska. You can see lots of rescued animals in the area such as grizzly bears, elk, moose, and wolves. Moreover, the Portage Glacier is also a great outdoor space to visit where you can hike and explore. It is a very beautiful place and there are even guided tours you can attend. Furthermore, if you truly enjoy exploring and hiking in the wild nature, make sure to visit Chugach State Park which features 500,000 acres of open land. This land has long trails, large forests, and beautiful waterfalls such as the Thunder Bird Falls. The state park is also an excellent place for wildlife and bird watching. Of course the ski resorts are amazing, and the Mt Alyeska Ski Resort is a highly recommended place. On the top of the mountain visit, we recommend visiting the Roundhouse at Alyeska and taking in the breathtaking view of the valley.

The center area offers unique bars and hearty restaurants which are perfect places to relax after a long day outside. Vacation home rentals in Girdwood are very popular so do not worry about not finding an excellent place to stay at during your holiday. Vacation rentals offer great amenities like full kitchens, amazing mountain or bay views, and multiple bedrooms. If you are traveling with family or friends, you can also find nice, big vacation homes and cabins.

Best Time to Visit Girdwood
