This route begins at Granite Creek, across the Tana Glacier to Iceberg Lake then on to Bremner and all the way to Tebay Lake. This is a long, difficult and challenging route but for the experienced and prepared adventurer, truly the trip of a lifetime. You will pass through some of the best country that the park has to offer.
This route combines the following routes. See the individual trip pages for more information on each leg of the trip.

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..
