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.
Thank you for all of your help with our recent hiking trip. The Wrangells are absolutely gorgeous. Memories of the trip will visit our dreams for the rest of our lives. Your enthusiasm about the park and preserve during our phone conversations played a large part in our decision to travel to the Wrangells. The route you helped us decide on was perfect for our abilities and the length of time we had available. We all appreciated your concern for our safety and the extremely friendly staff. I will certainly encourage future groups to travel with you..
