Cordova, Alaska Overview
Located on the Orca Inlet on the eastern side of Prince William Sound, this remote destination can only be reached by plane or boat. Cordova has retained the feel of an authentic fishing village and still attracts hundreds of workers each year hoping to make money by joining boat crews. It is also the gateway to the Copper River Delta, where prized salmon swim along their annual migration route.
Learn more about the area's local maritime history and past copper-ore mining operations at the Cordova Historical Museum- or see it in person by driving the Copper River Highway. This 48-mile route travels through one of the largest wetlands, and ends at Million Dollar Bridge, originally constructed to carry copper ore from nearby mines. Outdoor adventures abound in Alaska, and Cordova is no exception; a guided coastal kayak tour offers stunning views of the Chugach Mountain Range along with the chance to paddle alongside sea otters and seals.
