Cold Bay has a long runway, and is a diversion landing strip for the Space Shuttle, though this is not the cheapest way to get to Cold Bay, and the shuttle has not landed there yet! (haha). A Japanese flight was diverted there a few years ago, and quite a surprise to the 300+ visitors on board! The village will make you welcome to the best of their ability.
Otherwise you can fly a scheduled flight, or ake the Alaska Marine Highway once a month from April through October.
Before arriving in Cold Bay, the naturalist held a lottery for spots on the Fish and Wildlife service bus to go to Izembek Lagoon. My name was chosen, though my friends, Peggy and Diane, were not.
We had to travel 11 miles each way to the lagoon over old army roads, and our stay was only an hour and a half! That meant no time for lollygagging! Get on the bus! Vroom, Vroom! Drive like crazy! Have maybe 15 minutes to look for geese, then back on the bus. Vroom, Vroom. Back to the boat. Was that a bear! No time to stop. Thump da thump, oops, a squirrel! Well it will be food for the scavangers.
Highly Recommended, if you have a strong constitution.
Only one air carrier serves Cold Bay at this time, Anchorage to Cold Bay- 640 air miles will put you back a pretty penny-around 740. round trip.
With 40 plus miles of gravel road left over from WW11 a rent a wreck is available in town.
