Things to do in Whittier

The central gateway to Prince William Sound is Whittier, a seaside town nestled between rugged mountains and icy glaciers, bounded by rocky shores, rainforests and glaciers. North America's largest rail and highway tunnel, the Anton Anderson Memorial, is the sole connector for those travelling by land. Whittier is a perfect basecamp for outdoor activities with its calmer waters and numerous glaciers, the opportunity for water sports such as kayaking and marine wildlife spotting are high.
