Rain Forest Hike:
Join us on a hike in the farthest north temperate rain forest in North America. Hike among lush green carpets of moss under a dense forest of Spruce and Hemlock trees. Look for bright orange fungus or lichens hundreds of years old. Our guides are trained naturalists and always ready to share information with you on the ecology of this unique ecosystem.

Cordova offers a variety of hiking experiences for all skill levels and interests. You can choose to hike on your own or hike with one of our naturalist guides.

Experienced hikers can take an invigorating hike to the top of a mountain. Not only will you get a great workout, you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of mountains, bays and fjords of Eastern Prince William Sound.

There are also easy, moderate or difficult hikes through a variety of ecosystems. These include the coastal temperate rainforest, muskeg meadows, or alpine tundra. Or hike into a remote lake to try your luck at fishing.

Sheridan Glacier Hiking and Rafting Adventure:
This is a river trip unlike any you've done before. This uniquely Alaskan rafting trip includes hiking, rafting, glaciers and icebergs! Start your adventure with a naturalist led hike to the face of Sheridan Glacier. Learn first hand how glaciers carve the landscape. Views of the glacier are spectacular from the trail. The hike ends at the Sheridan Lake, formed by the melting Sheridan Glacier. You'll paddle among giant blue icebergs, carved in mysterious shapes by the elements. And of course you'll enjoy a few rapids. The class II & III rapids of the Sheridan River are big enough to be exciting, but not scary. Much of the river trip is a scenic float offering wildlife viewing and scenic vistas. And we serve the prized Copper River Salmon on all of our river trips.

This trip includes a hike led by our naturalist, paddling through icebergs in a glacial lake, and just enough rapids to make it exciting, not scary! A light snack is provided at the end of the river trip. And we provide round trip transportation from Cordova Rose Lodge at no extra charge!
