Gold was discovered in the hills and this log cabin town sprang up nearly overnight. The year was 1913 yet today this town still exists and offers the rare experience of a frontier town in a rugged mountain setting. From Chisana you can day hike or hike a loop through the hills where gold was discovered, or head off across the tundra to another airstrip for a later pickup.
In Chisana you can stay at a log cabin the National Park Service renovated or at a local B&B. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and clean mountain air at this fly in only, remote Alaskan town.
Just a note to say thanks for a wonderful flightseeing trip. And I also appreciated the steps you took throughout the flight for safety – when you kept all other aircraft in sight constantly. The flightseeing trip through the Tana Canyon and up over the Bagley Icefield was our favorite part of our vacation to Alaska. The sights were awesome. We really appreciated that took the time to point out the moose, bears buffalo and wolf that we saw. It was a sight that we will never forget. The views of Mt. St. Elias and Mt. Logan will never be forgotten; nor the sight down the Bering Glacier to the Pacific Ocean. Thank again for the wonderful flight. We hope to be back someday soon for another one. .
