Show Whittier Sailings


Whittier is nestled between the glacier-capped Chugach mountains and Prince William Sound. Built by the U.S. Government during World War II as a hidden port, today Whittier is the gateway to a recreational wonderland. In May of 2000, a highway from Whittier to the Interior opened to the public. This spectacular drive from the edge of Prince William Sound through the Chugach mountains winds through a series of tunnels, and connects Whittier to Anchorage only 45 miles to the south. Travelers also have the option of taking the famed Alaska Railroad from Whittier all the way to Fairbanks.

Things to Do

A great place to visit is the Begich Towers Incorporated. This is a 14 story complex that has restaurants, cafes, shops, and a church.

Dog sledding is very popular here. Have a great time dog sledding with a tour guide through snow trails throughout the area. A great activity to do when you are in the city.
