Route Description

In the alpine country of Nikolai Pass, look to Mt. Blackburn (16,390’) in one direction, the snowy University Range (16,421’) in the other, and the glacial waters of Nizina River 2400’ below. Hike along rolling slopes toward the base of Sourdough peak, or explore nearby remains of old Nikolai Mine. Great photo opportunities.

Certificate of Excellence

My wife and I would like to thank you....The two hour extended flight over the Chugach, Wrangell and St. Elias mountains enabled us to see some of the most spectacular scenery that we have ever seen! Bernie and Harriet Negrin I took the 90 minute Grand Tour. It was an excellent flight, and your pilot was a great guide. As far as I was concerned, the cost of the flight turned out to be a bargain! Next time I get to McCarthy and require transportation, I will give Wrangell Mountain Air a call. .
