Guest Testimonial

Ben was very friendly and enthusiastic right from the start. He seemed very knowledgeable about Iceland, and suggested a few extra excursions we had not even considered.

- JM, Lonodn



The Hotel Alyeska has a pristine setting, tucked away in the Chugach Mountains on Alaska's south central coast in the quaint town of Girdwood, just 40 miles south of Anchorage. This elegant chateau-style resort is detailed with solid cherry wood and equipped with a wonderful workout centre, full spa and a plethora of opportunities to experience the adventure of the Alaska wilderness. Explore the wooded surroundings on hiking and biking trails, spot bald eagles among the towering spruce trees, and enjoy the tranquillity and the pure fresh air.

A not-to-be-missed experience is a ride on the aerial tram directly from the hotel to the summit of Mount Alyeska. Enjoy dinner at the Seven Glaciers Restaurant, 700 metres above the valley floor, with unrivalled views of the Chugach Mountains, Turnagain Arm and Glacier Valley.
