Valdez Alaska Travel Guide

Valdez exudes much of the beauty and wildlife associated with southern Alaska, and is a haven for travelers looking to really explore the great outdoors.

Things to Do in Valdez Alaska

Those visiting Valdez are going to want to take advantage of its stunning natural beauty as much as possible. Outside of the city are the Worthington Glacier and Thompson Pass. The glacier, which is over 5,770 acres, is a sight to behold, while many extreme skiers and snowboarders use Thompson Pass as a playground.

In the city, Valdez’s harbor is the jumping-off point for those wanting to take to the sea. A number of tour companies, like Pangaea Adventures, rent sea kayaks for those wanting to paddle through the bay. Some lucky kayakers may even get to have some up close encounters with Alaska’s diverse marine mammals, including critters as small and cute as sea otters to the sublime orca whale.
