Experience a Weekend in Whittier

Cove of water with mountains around.

The sleepy Alaskan town is located within the Prince William Sound, a gorgeous area surrounded by glaciers. Take a water taxi out to a Chugach Forest Service public use cabin, or camp on the beach as you spend time kayaking in the coves and glacial bays in the Sound. Before you leave, stretch your legs and hike to Portage Pass to view more glacier goodness.
