The flight out of McCarthy will take you through beautiful Skolai Pass and down the White River before heading west into the Nutzotin Mountains. You get to see a lot of the park on this flight.
There are opportunities for day trips in all directions out of Horsfeld or you could do a loop trip.

This part of the park is seldom visited.
I can't sing enough praise for the folks at Wrangell Mountain Air. They're a very professional outfit, they have the most useful trip planning information for the independent backpacker that I've ever seen, and, most important of all, they are honestly concerned with your safety. .
