Go on an Adventure
Girdwood is not lacking in the adventure department. Start with a flightseeing tour to take in all of the stunning alpine scenery and glaciers surrounding Girdwood from above or get up close to a glacier by booking a helicopter glacier trekking tour complete with a hike across the ice with an experienced guide. While visiting the area glaciers, learn how to mush with the professionals and their dogs. Even in the summer, visitors can take a ride across the alpine snowfield or try a hand at leading the team.
Back on solid ground, downhill ski at Alyeska Resort, rent a fat-tire bike or strap on cross-country skis and hit the Nordic trails. In the summer, explore those same trails from the seat of a mountain bike.
Other tours that take off from Girdwood include multi-day glacier camping excursions, scenic river floats at Spencer and Portage glaciers, kayaking and more. Travelers can find whatever Alaska adventure they’re looking for in Girdwood.
