Things To Do In Cordova

Rafting in Alaska on the Copper River through one of the world's most dramatic canyons will render a lifetime of memories. Offering an abundance of wildlife, cascading waterfalls, glaciers that often calve right into the river, and mild white water, this river trip floats 100 miles towards the sea allowing for a classic passage from the heart of Alaska's majestic mountains to the sparkling Prince William Sound.

Built by J.P. Morgan and the Guggenheim family for the purpose of hauling copper in the early 1900s, the so-called Million Dollar Bridge (officially the Miles Glacier Bridge) spans the Copper River between the Childs and Miles glaciers, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The breathtaking views of the bridge and glacier mark the end of the 50-mile Copper River Highway, but due to a washed-out bridge at mile 36, these stunning sights can only be accessed via boat tour up the Copper River.
