Lodging, Dining & Attractions in Valdez

A town often called the "Switzerland" of Alaska and steeped in history, Valdez has a small but strong tourism industry bringing a few choice lodging and dinning options

While there are a handful of options available during your stay in Valdez we have two personal favorites when it comes to lodging and dining.  The vast majority of clients visiting us on All-Inclusive packages stay and dine here:

Valdez Attractions and Night Life

While we're all about heli-skiing, there's plenty more to do in Valdez!  The Valdez Museum is always an option for family members coming along.  As is Ice Climbing, Cross Country skiing on a large network of groomed trails right in town, international dining (Mexican and Asian) and Sugar & Spice - the gift shop where you can pick up some truly unique Alaskan collectibles for your friends and family back home.

If you're not too tired from heli skiing or heli hiking and find yourself in search of some entertainment later in the evening, the Pipeline Club and Landshark are two popular local watering holes and the Pipeline has a great house band on Saturdays.

While they don't happen every night, you may also be lucky enough to catch a flick at the Civic Center's new modern movie theater during your stay.  In the summer, sea kayaking and fishing chaters are also available for your enjoyment!
