Valdez, Alaska is an essential element of a successful Alaska tour but is not necessarily included in all mainstream itineraries. Choose to make your itinerary unique and stand out from your competition by including a visit to Mother Natures Favorite – Valdez.
It takes time to experience all the wonders of Valdez. We suggest you Allow yourself at least two days to explore our glaciers, towering mountains, rushing waterfalls, extreme natural beauty and bountiful wildlife that makes visiting Valdez a true Alaskan experience. The small size of Valdez makes exploring the town on foot, bicycle or vehicle easy to do.
