There’s just something Special about Cordova.
From its vast size to its heart-pounding landscape and exceptional wildlife, Alaska is considered a must-see destination for travelers from around the world – a place where you will create memories that last forever. However, even for Alaskans, Cordova is considered a uniquely magical place. Nestled in the heart of a spectacular wilderness, Cordova is shaped by its dramatic natural setting, rich cultural heritage and colorful residents. Visitors are compelled by its beauty, but even more by its authenticity and small town character reminiscent of days gone by.
