Valdez Alaska - Field Tested Alaska Approved
Valdez is a small city know as "little Switzerland" It is nestled in a glacial fjord, called the port of Valdez, surrounded by towering mountain peaks. Valdez is a self sustained town of about 4200 residents, with grocery stores, gas stations, hotels, bed &breakfasts, restaurants, museums, a hospital, schools, many shops, and an airport. The small boat harbor is a great place to watch the fishing boats and kayaks head out into Prince William Sound.
Valdez is located just over the Chugach mountains from Anchorage about 100 miles as the crow flies. If you drive the Glenn and Richardson Highways to Valdez the road will be 300 beautiful miles.
Once in Valdez, there are many other activities to join other than Sea kayaking. There are glacier hikes, ice climbing, glacier cruises, bicycle rentals, hiking, and river rafting. The town is very traveler friendly with restaurants, hotels, and B & B's. You can find all of your outdoor equipment needs at one of the two outdoor stores or buy extra groceries at the full service market (Wow, Safeway!).
