Enjoy the flight in to the mouth of the Chitistone Canyon and land at the Glacier Creek airstrip. Surrounded by jagged peaks, glaciers and rivers, take advantage of the National Park Service public use cabin or camp on the dryas bars of the Chitistone River.
From the airstrip you can hike the Chitistone canyon, climb to alpine meadows or access the Twaharpie Glacier. The awesome scenery of this secluded place will astound you.
This was our first flight in a small plane. Our pilots Don and Martin, made us feel at ease and made our flights enjoyable. We especially appreciate your pilot’s expertise, as well as them describing various points of interest as we flew. Thanks for making our trip to Wrangell-St. Elias safe and memorable! .
