Virtually untouched by human presence, this is a remote hike through classic Wrangell terrain; massive glacier carved valleys, cascading waterfalls, and hidden alpine lakes, all await the adventurous hiker. Reminiscent of the Skolai Valley and the Goat Trail, The Seven Pass Route will challenge and amaze you with a constantly changing landscape. This route offers a great adventure for the seasoned backpacker looking for a challenging wilderness experience on a seldom traveled route.
You will move through constantly changing and varied terrain from lush, verdant valleys, to blue glacial landscapes, to barren, rock-strewn mountain passes. Even experienced backcountry travelers will feel challenged. If you’re looking for a true wilderness adventure, this is a great choice. Three different options allow for varied backcountry skill levels and trip lengths, but all will leave you with a truly unique wilderness experience.

A quick message to say thanks. We flew from Chitina to McCarthy on Friday, June 20 and then returned to Chitina on Sunday, June 22. This was our first flight on a small plane. Our pilots, Don and Martin (as well as Natalie), made us feel at ease and made our flights enjoyable. We especially appreciate your pilots' expertise as well as them describing various points of interest as we flew. Overall, we definitely enjoyed our experience and would recommend Wrangell Mountain Air to others. We hope to return to the area again. Thanks again for making our trip to Alaska safe and memorable..
