Go for an Adventure

Summertime in Cordova is an adventurer’s haven. Start the day on the water, kayak around Orca Inlet with kayaks rented from a local outfitter or arrange a guided tour in the area. Guides can take travelers to the very best paddling locations, depending on current conditions the day of their trip.

Look to the Copper River for another adventure. The river offers both calm floats and whitewater rafting thrills. Travelers can find a guided option that suits their needs whether they want to spend a half day in a raft or commit to a multi-day float incorporating other activities.

Travelers who want to stay on land can hike the trails or plan a night of camping. Forest Service cabins in the area can be reached by foot on the McKinley Lake Trail, the Pipeline Lakes Trail and on the Power Creek Trail. Travelers in the winter have the added option of skiing or snowboarding. Mount Eyak is home to a single chairlift and 30 different trails. Or, thrill seekers can board a helicopter for backcountry heli-skiing or snowboarding adventures at the top of the mountain.
