About Nakochna River Resort

Jordan Velevas, a retired chef and the owner, grew up in northern Pennsylvania where he started cooking at a young age. He went traveling across the USA after high school, learning how to prepare the food that was not available in his home state at that time.


After years of traveling, he had his heart on Alaska. He moved to a secluded paradise near Skwentna in 2015 where he was given the opportunity to re-open a gold mine. Jordan spent a few years working at this haven which is now known as the Nakochna River Resort.
