Alaska Eyak River Lodge is located just outside the small city of Cordova, Alaska. Cordova is filled with things to do! If you're looking for sunshine on your shoulders or snow on your boots, there are things to do all year-round:

Spring/Summer/Fall: dozens of trails for hiking, hunting, fishing, wildlife watching, The Shorebird Festival

Winter: skiing / snowboarding at Mt. Eyak, some hiking trails open, extreme skiing, The Iceworm Festival

Cordova is a uniquely Alaskan community, shaped by its dramatic natural setting, rich cultural heritage, and colorful residents. Cordova is a working town, nestled in the heart of a spectacular wilderness, that still looks to the ocean and forests for its livelihood.

Visit Cordova for the best of both worlds, the pleasures of a sophisticated small town and step-out-the-door access to adventure. Visitors from around the globe trek to Cordova to amble across the Million Dollar Bridge, enjoy the magnificent Childs Glacier up close, fish for salmon in the Copper River Delta, explore Orca Inlet, or be surrounded by tens of thousands of shorebirds at Hartney Bay. The town is the perfect compliment to the wilderness. It is a comfortable place to stroll, shop, visit a museum, or linger over a cup of coffee and admire the view of our busy harbor.

Cordova is easy to reach (but not too easy) and pleasantly off the path of Alaska Tourism. Cordova is less than a one hour plane flight east from Anchorage, with daily jet service as well as regular ferry service . Designated as an "All American Road" in 2005, the Marine Highway links Cordova with the road systems in Alaska via the ports of Whittier or Valdez. For winter 2008 the Marine Highway implemented another substantial travel incentive - "Driver Goes Free" on any round trip booking between Cordova and Whittier or Valdez!

Now more accessible than ever, Cordova may not be for everyone, but if you're in love with wilderness, fascinated by history, attracted to unique places, and dedicated to adventure, Cordova
is for you!
Childs Glacier
Childs Glacier is located about 50 miles from the town of Cordova, Alaska and is accessed by road or water. The valley glacier is 12 miles long, 7 miles wide, with a 300-foot-high face.

One of the many sea level glaciers in Alaska, Child's Glacier creates numerous spectacular ice calving events that welcome visitors between May and September

Cordova Ferry System

Finally, Cordova is within your reach!  With the vastly improved Alaska State Ferry schedule in Prince William Sound the road now goes all the way to Cordova. You can get to Cordova by simply driving to Whittier or Valdez and "changing lanes" to the Alaska Marine Highway for a relaxing cruise across the Sound until you just drive off and you are here!  ALASKA MARINE HIGHWAY FERRY SYSTEM
