Many fly in destinations in Wrangell-St. Elias provide opportunities for day hiking from the comfort of a fixed camp or exploring the country hiking in a loop and returning to the same airstrip. Because of the limited amount of developed trails and routes in this wilderness park, base camping is an excellent way to enjoy the backcountry.
The overview chart below lists some of the main features of different areas with links to details about the hiking trips, including rates.
**Please be aware that base campers will have a much larger impact on an area than continually moving hikers. Please know and follow the NPS guidelines for minimum impact hiking and camping.
All prices are round trip from McCarthy and based on a two person minimum.
