Route Description

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.

Certificate of Excellence

We traveled all over the state of Alaska – from Coldfoot in the Brooks Range to Resurrection Bay – to experience the outdoors and see the people that make up our state. Over 150 people participated this year, in order to see the Alaska that tourists never do. Our programs depends on a number of individuals to make it work. Your assistance throughout the summer helped make these trips happen allowed me to look after the participants without having to worry about travel. Unfortunately I do not remember all of you staff that helped us each time we breezed into town – I do remember though that they were all very professional and personable. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you and your staff for donating your time and energy to helping these trip happen..
