Nestled between the Chugach Mountains and Prince William Sound, Valdez is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream destination. Even better, it’s easy accessibility from Anchorage makes it the perfect destination for a quick day or weekend trip. Not to mention, our pilots love flying over the stunning Prince William Sound!

Averaging 27 feet of snow in the winter months, Valdez is the snowiest city in the nation and offers every winter activity imaginable. Those visiting in the winter should tour a glacier or take a heli-skiing trip with a local operator. As the snow begins to melt, the coastal town turns into the “land of waterfalls” and, just as in the winter, the opportunities for exploration are endless. Those visiting Valdez in the summer should embark on a fishing charter or wildlife and glacier cruise.
