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

Hi! Just wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our day trip from Chitina to McCarthy with you on Father’s Day 2004. We enjoyed talking to our pilots who obviously enjoy what they do. Every aspect of Wrangell Mountain Air is professional and friendly and you certainly deliver everything you promise..
