Cruise Ports Alaska - Whittier (PDF Chapter)
This is the Whittier chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cruise Ports Alaska guide-book.
Whittier is a wonderfully weird Cold War anachronism set on the edge of some sublime coastal wilderness where rugged fjords dispatch tumbling glaciers into Prince William Sound. Even by Alaskan standards, this is a bizarre outpost.
- hike the Portage Pass Trail for views of Portage Glacier, Passage Canal and the surround-ing mountains
- tour tidal glaciers in style around Prince William Sound
- kayak around glaciers and spot wildlife in Blackstone Bay
- food & drink
