This is an amazing adventure through virtually untouched Alaskan wilderness. From glaciers to glacial rivers, and from tundra to thick brush, the route described below encompasses all aspects of a classic trip in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Mountaineering skills are not necessary for this trip, but because of the challenging terrain and remote location, it is recommended for strong backpackers with excellent route finding skills.
This route was only done for the first time in the summer of 2003 so it’s definitely off the beaten track. This is a great choice for some one looking for an adventurous route.
Special Features of This Route
Snow and Ice: Depending on the route option you choose, ice/snow field travel may be involved.
Streams: Be prepared for moderate stream crossings.
Terrain: Hikers should be prepared for changing weather, steep and rough terrain and remote route finding.
A quick message to say thanks. We flew from Chitina to McCarthy on Friday, June 20 and then returned to Chitina on Sunday, June 22. This was our first flight on a small plane. Our pilots, Don and Martin (as well as Natalie), made us feel at ease and made our flights enjoyable. We especially appreciate your pilots' expertise as well as them describing various points of interest as we flew. Overall, we definitely enjoyed our experience and would recommend Wrangell Mountain Air to others. We hope to return to the area again. Thanks again for making our trip to Alaska safe and memorable..
