This land of endless sun is an incredible destination whether you prefer rugged outdoor adventure or a week in the lap of luxury. When visiting the Last Frontier, you'll find national parks, fishing beyond compare, group hunting tours, adventure travel, ocean cruises, hiking, camping, and more. Explore the state in an RV and sport fish in the ocean or some of the thousands of rivers, lakes, and streams, or set yourself up in a luxury hotel—in Alaska you can have the best of both worlds.
What Makes Alaska Unique
We highly recommend spending time in the many national parks and forests, like the Wrangell St. Elias National Park, the largest park in the National Park System, near Valdez. There you can experience a remote hunting trip, sightseeing, nature photography, or a stunning hike through the wilderness. Alaskan cities and towns are home to numerous art galleries filled with native works of arts and crafts, music festivals, and fine dining options on cuisine like fresh sea food and wild game often caught and hunted by locals. You’ll have a rare opportunity to experience fun all day and almost all night, thanks to the long days in the summertime.
Golfing is also very popular in Alaska and you’ll find courses on the ocean, as well as the more rugged inland courses. You can go rock climbing, hiking, or even take a special ATV tour through the forests. For those that want an extra taste of excitement, there are guided river rafting tours and even sky diving opportunities. You’ll never be short of things to do during your stay.
Valdez is located four hours east of Anchorage and sits in the northeast tip of the Prince William Sound. Due to the marine currents in and weather generated by the Pacific Ocean, the climate is generally mild, even though the mountains nearby receive more snow each year than any other sea-level area in North America. You may remember Valdez for the Exxon oil spill of 1989 or the 1964 earthquake, but those who visit the area remember much, much more. While there, be sure to check out the helicopter tour rides, giving you a birds-eye view of the most spectacular wildlife mother nature has to offer.
