About Whittier

The quaint town of Whittier only has around 200 residents yet features a rich history as well as boasting stunning landscapes filled with glaciers.

The town used to act as the port of cargo and troops of the Alaska Command in World War Two as well as being used by gold miners during the Alaska Gold Rush to travel between Prince Williams Sound to the Cook inlet. Whittier is nestled along the Prince Williams Sound, which allows guests to experience unspoiled glaciers and an exciting array of wildlife such as peregrine falcons, bald eagles, sea otters and killer whales.
