Palmer, Alaska, is a small town with an extraordinary location in the spectacular Mat-Su Valley. On the north shore of the Matanuska River, this picturesque town is framed by the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountain ranges. The downtown is utterly charming: all antique buildings, furniture, and wood floors - most of it dating back to the 1930s. It is also close to the majestic Denali National Park and Preserve - so Palmer is the perfect location for any adventurous glamper looking for a relaxed base. Head to the nearby Hatcher Pass area for stunning panoramas of the Talkeetna Mountains, numerous hiking trails, and gold mine artifacts. Or check out the stunning Knik Glacier, perhaps on an airboat ride up the Knik River?
