Strenuous: Bremner to Tana River


Tana Glacier Hiking Backpacking Backcountry
 

Virtually untouched by human presence, this is a remote hike through classic Wrangell terrain; massive glacier carved valleys, cascading waterfalls, and hidden alpine lakes, all await the adventurous hiker. Reminiscent of the Skolai Valley and the Goat Trail, The Seven Pass Route will challenge and amaze you with a constantly changing landscape. This route offers a great adventure for the seasoned backpacker looking for a challenging wilderness experience on a seldom traveled route.

You will move through constantly changing and varied terrain from lush, verdant valleys, to blue glacial landscapes, to barren, rock-strewn mountain passes. Even experienced backcountry travelers will feel challenged. If you’re looking for a true wilderness adventure, this is a great choice. Three different options allow for varied backcountry skill levels and trip lengths, but all will leave you with a truly unique wilderness experience. 

Glaciers: There are 2-3 glacier crossings on this trip depending on your route taken. Some experience with glacier travel and crampons is advised. 

Streams: There are a couple of potentially challenging stream crossings. Be prepared and knowledgable about safe crossing techniques. 

Terrain: A few of the ridges climbed have some steep sections but none with serious exposure.
